some form of engineering. Working with metal also interests me so I herd of precision
about it. Machining involves taking a raw piece of metal and boring, drilling, milling,
grinding, and turning until you end up with a desired product. Also, these parts are to
exact specifications of the blueprints. Precise measurements are taken to ensure correct

that goes hand and hand with money is work hours. Time is money so that is equally

possible to do this for a living. I feel that if I know all about it there won?t be any
surprises or disappointments later on.
y research begins with a long and drawn out trip to the Winter Park High School
information here on precision machining. This gave me information but not really any
examples of it or pictures of this trade. Nest, I went to Lockheed Martin?s website and
involved new parts never made before, thats where the machinist comes in. Next, I visited
best working practical machine. They designed and built some kinds of experimental
projects. There were things that fly and things that drill and things that swim. I noticed
that most everything was made from scratch. So no store-bought parts were used. That
means that the parts were all manufactured. At this website I also came across many job
were quite a few companies that were local that supplied pieces and parts to airplane
builders and mechanics. Some machines are so expensive that the parts must be custom
answers to my question cam form the web site from Arizona?s university. Machinists
make from sixteen to twenty-three dollars an hour and higher with experience. Starting
right out of collage you can expect to make on average of about eight-teen dollars an
hour. Hours are like any other job, nine to five unless you have extra work to make up.
You go to collage for a minimum of one year attending a vocational school like mid
steady arm of a robot is helpful when quality is of the essence.
After all this research I have come to some conclusions. I am very interested in
precision machining. I am looking for more money than precision machining can offer.
There are careers like mechanical engineering that offer more money for less hours. I will
have to research that new career next. I think it is important to be happy with what you
might seriously consider precision machining as a career.
