I would usually from 7 through 4, 5 days a week. I would take apart our equipment. Find the problem, fix it and put it back together. I would also expect all our units to make sure they are running well and everything is ok. While I would inspect these units; I would have to refill liquids, wash, replace, paint, stencil, and fix them. I learned how every piece of equipment worked and how to fix it. When I wasn’t working in the shop I would also drive a gov’t truck around to deliver the pieces of equipment I was working on to aircrafts and hangers.
