A machinist doesn’t think of metal as something hard and unchangeable because they can change it into anything they want.
Students in Precision Metalworking setup and operate machines to fabricate and repair parts and components. A machinist performs cuts on materials to bring it to the desired shape and dimensions. Metal blocks can be transformed into intricate parts such as sprockets, gears, pistons, tools, wheels, and molds. These parts are then assembled into cars, bikes or the machinery which mass produce every conceivable manufactured good.
