Machinists are precise people. They enjoy making complex parts with and without the help of computers. Machinists set up and operate a variety of machine tools to cut or grind metal, plastic or other materials to make or modify parts or products — all to exact dimensions. Machinists also work as machining and tooling inspectors who inspect machined parts and tooling in order to maintain quality control standards.
Are you a techie at heart who takes pride in producing high-quality manufactured products? If the answer is yes, then you could be a machinist. Your workspace is a workshop. Many machinists spend their days transferring complex mechanical engineering drawings from a computer screen to computerized machinery. This means you move back and forth between the worlds of computers and precision machines.
