HS-MK Brick Saw donated to winning school Ontario

MK Diamond donates a powerful Electric Series Brick Saw to the winning school – we thank you!

MITA introduces masonry skills in high schools, and this event allows masonry students to enter a team of 2 masons and 1 tender, in a timed event to build a 13 ft. 3 5/8” wall. They build a first course of 8x8x16 block and thereafter build with precision 4″ highs.
They are allowed to lay their first course before the clock starts. Then they have 25 minutes to lay block. 1 minute break between laying and tooling. Then 5 minutes to tool joints.

The winning school receives a powerful MK Electric Series Brick & Block Saws donated by MK Diamond – lucky Ontario High School masonry lab!

All runner-up teams received a Makita 2 piece combo drill kit donated by Hub Construction Supplies for their high school masonry labs.

P.S. Yes! The girl tender is the same April Ruiz from the history-making all girls team who won the Top Notch Trowel high school competition earlier this year in May.
