What is it like working as a Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) Operator?

Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) Operator in pakenham:
"Never A Dull Moment."
Pros: The job is constantly engaging. There is always something to do, and the best part is it keeps you fit. Loading sheets of wood onto the flat bed routers keeps your body fit, while checking CNC job files for faults and ensuring you are cutting the correct number of sheets for the batch keeps your brain well occupied too.
Cons: The dust is a definite drawback. Dust extraction vacuums are linked to the machines, however they can only do so much. The machines are quite noisy, so ear protection is also a vital necessity.
