    masons help mcti students build ideas about their futures swiftwater — ask kevin mcdermott, 18, what the best part about being a mason is and he will tell you it's the hands-on experience.   by christina tatu for the pocono record november 21, 2007 swiftwater — ask kevin mcdermott, 18, what the best part about being a mason is and he will tell you it's the hands-on experience. "i like to be outside lifting heavy stuff and working with my hands. it's good exercise," mcdermott said. mcdermott, a may graduate of monroe career & technical institute in bartonsville, has been gaining a lot of that hands-on experience since he was hired, right after graduation, by the union of bricklayers and allied craftsmen local 5. on friday, mcdermott and 15 other local 5 masons invited mcti masonry students to see the construction work at the site of the new swiftwater elementary center. mcdermott spoke to 21 mcti students in grades 10 through 12 about his experience. students also had the chance to watch the masons lay bricks at the new school. the trip was the first one coordinated between the union and mcti. local 5 field representative frank baskar said that first-hand experience not only works as a resume booster, it also allows students to experience typical working conditions. "in this kind of work, it's all about hands-on and how good students are with their motor skills. you can be the smartest kid in class, but if you don't like to get your hands dirty, then this is not for you," baskar said. masons are in very high demand in this area because of the increased growth and construction, according to mcti masonry instructor mike daukshus. getting students out in the field gives them a head start. "we try to get out in as many real-life situations as we can," daukshus said. "(students) get the opportunity to see how to work in conjunction with those in the trade." as full-fledged masons, the students will not only lay brick, tile, blocks and ve

    what do power equipment technicians do? what are the working conditions? how much can i earn? what will i work on? when a piece of equipment breaks down, mechanics use various techniques to diagnose the source and extent of the problem. the mark of a skilled mechanic is the ability to diagnose mechanical, fuel, and electrical problems and to make repairs quickly. quick and accurate diagnosis requires problem-solving ability and a thorough knowledge of the equipment's operation. some jobs require minor adjustments or the replacement of a single item, but a complete engine overhaul could require hours to disassemble the engine and replace worn valves, pistons, bearings, and other internal parts. some highly skilled mechanics use specialized components and the latest computerized equipment to customize and tune motorcycles and motorboats for racing. hand tools are the most important work-related possessions of mechanics. small engine mechanics use wrenches, pliers, and screwdrivers on a regular basis. mechanics usually provide their own tools, although employers will furnish expensive power tools, computerized engine analyzers, and other diagnostic equipment. computerized engine analyzers, compression gauges, ammeters and voltmeters, and other testing devices help mechanics locate faulty parts and tune engines. this equipment provides a systematic performance report of various components to compare against normal ratings. after pinpointing the problem, the mechanic makes the needed adjustments, repairs, or replacements. small engines also require periodic service to minimize the chance of breakdowns and to keep them operating at peak performance. during routine maintenance, mechanics follow a checklist that includes the inspection and cleaning of brakes, electrical systems, fuel injection systems, plugs, carburetors, and other parts. following inspection, mechanics usually repair or adjust parts that do not work properly or replace unfixable parts. motor
