Machinist, Part Assembly
Birdsall Marine Design
As my first machine job, I quickly became familiar with operating machines that include a lathe, mill, metal bender, drill press, and various hand tools. I also learned how to perform math required to be accurate with my work by 1/1000th of an inch. My duties were to manufacture aluminum into small parts and accessories for boats. Then assemble them, once all work had been completed, to be sold or placed in a showroom.
