Job Description for Manual Machinist

Manual machinists are skilled workers who use machine tools in manufacturing plants to cut, shave, slice, drill, and otherwise manipulate a variety of hard surfaces, from wood to glass to metals. While the name implies the hands-on use of these tools, the reality is that many of the lathes, drills, saws, and other implements now have computer controls to assist the manual machinist. Because modern appliances and other components that will use the pieces created by manual machinists can require precise specifications (down to .001 of an inch), even with computers involved, this is a position requiring substantial skill and attention to detail.
