This classification does not include mechanics who repair custom ers'
vehicles in automobile repair shops.

Specializes in the operation of one or more types of machine tools,
such as jig bo rers, cylindrical or surface grinders; engine lathes; or milling
machines, in the construction of machine-shop too ls, gauges, jig s, fixtures,
or dies. Work involves most of the following: Planning and performing
difficult machining operations; processing item s requiring complicated setups
or a high degree of accuracy; using a variety of precision measuring instru­
m ents; selecting feeds, speeds, tooling, and operation sequence; and making
necessary adjustments during operation to achieve requisite tolerances or
dimensions. May be required to recognize when tools need dressing, to
dress tools, and to select proper coolants and cutting and lubricating oils.
For cross-in du stry wage study purposes, m achine-tool operators (toolroom)
in tool and die jobbing shops are excluded from this classification.

MAINTENANCE PIPEFITTER
Installs or repairs water, steam, gas, or other types of pipe and
pipefittings in an establishment. Work involves most of the following: Laying
out work and measuring to locate position of pipe from drawings or other
written specifications; cutting various sizes of pipe to correct lengths with
chisel and hammer or oxyaqetylene torch or pipe-cutting machines; threading
pipe with stocks and dies; bending pipe by hand-driven or power-driven
machines; assembling pipe with couplings and fastening pipe to hangers;
making standard shop computations relating to p ressu res, flow, and size of
pipe required; and making standard tests to determine whether finished pipes
meet specifications. In general, the work of the maintenance pipefitter
requires rounded training and experience usually acquired through a form al
apprenticeship or equivalent training and experience. Workers prim arily
engaged in installing and repairing building sanitation or heating system s
are excluded.
MAINTENANCE S H E E T -M E T A L WORKER
Fabricates, installs, and maintains in good repair the sheet-m etal
equipment and fixtures (such as machine guards, grease pans, shelves,
lockers, tanks, ventilators, chutes, ducts, metal roofing) of an establishment.
Work involves most of the following: Planning and laying out all types of
sheet-m etal maintenance work from blueprints, m odels, or other specifi­
cations; setting up and operating all available types of sheet-m etal working
machines; using a variety of handtools in cutting, bending, forming, shaping,
fitting, and assembling; and installing sheet-m etal articles as required. In
general, the work of the maintenance sheet-m etal worker requires rounded
training and experience usually acquired through a form al apprenticeship or
equivalent training and experience.
MILLWRIGHT
Installs new machines or heavy equipment, and dismantles and
installs machines or heavy equipment when changes in the plant layout are
required.
Work involves most of the following; Planning and laying out
work; interpreting blueprints or other specifications; using a variety of handtools and rigging; making standard shop computations relating to str e sse s,
strength of m aterials, and centers of gravity; aligning and balancing equip­
ment; selecting standard too ls, equipment, and parts to be used; and installing
and maintaining in good order power transm ission equipment such as drives
and speed reducers. In general, the m illw right's work normally requires a
rounded training and experience in the trade acquired through a form al
apprenticeship or equivalent training and experience.
MAINTENANCE TRADES HELPER
A s s is ts one or m ore workers in the skilled maintenance trades, by
performing specific or general duties of le sse r skill, such as keeping a
worker supplied with m aterials and tools; cleaning working area, machine,
and equipment; assisting journeyman by holding m aterials or tools; and per­
forming other unskilled tasks as directed by journeyman. The kind of work
the helper is permitted to perform varies from trade to trade: In some
trades the helper is confined to supplying, lifting, and holding m aterials and
tools, and cleaning working areas; and in others he is permitted to perform
specialized machine operations, or parts of a trade that are also performed
by workers on a full-tim e basis.




TOOL AND DIE MAKER
Constructs and repairs m achine-shop tools, gauges, jig s , fixtures
or dies for forgings; punching, and other m etal-form ing work.
Work
involves m ost of the following: Planning and laying out work according to
m odels, blueprints, drawings, or other oral and written specifications; using
a variety of tool and die m aker's handtools and precision measuring instru­
m ents; understanding of the working properties of common metals and alloys;
setting up and operating of machine tools and related equipment; making
necessary shop computations relating to dimensions of work, speeds, feeds,
and tooling of machines; heat-treating of m etal parts during fabrication as
well as of finished tools and dies to achieve required qualities; working to
close tolerances; fitting and assembling of parts to prescribed tolerances
and allowances; and selecting appropriate m aterials, tools, and p ro cesses.
In general, the tool and die m aker's work requires a rounded training in
m achine-shop and toolroom practice usually acquired through a form al
apprenticeship or equivalent training and expedience.
