This article is about an older version of DF.

Mechanic is the skill associated with the mechanics labor. Mechanics can work at a mechanic's workshop or a metalsmith's forge to manufacture mechanisms, and place any buildings that require mechanisms such as levers, gears, traps, and menacing spikes. They are also responsible for linking up levers or pressure plates to objects such as bridges, floodgates and other contraptions.

A dwarf will gain mechanics skill by manufacturing mechanisms in the mechanic's workshop. A dwarf with a high skill in mechanics will typically produce higher quality mechanisms, and can link up objects faster than a novice. High quality mechanisms may provide happy thoughts to passing dwarves. Skill is also gained by loading cage traps.

To manufacture metal mechanisms, navigate into the trap component sub-menu at any metalsmith's forge. This process will use the mechanics labor.
