I am currently considering an apprenticeship in machining, and was wondering if any MAB members had some experience in this field? I remember BtB specifically mentioning something about doing machinist work years ago.
I do have an interest in the field - mainly I just want to hear from others about trades in general, how they liked the work, etc.
I was a machinist for a spell. I worked with some larger style machines, which was pretty darn challenging.
It's certainly a craft and a trade that requires a lot of math, logic and intelligence. You have to be on your toes, ready to problem solve each day, etc.
Each machine is fairly unique as well, and learning to program and run new machines is always a fun challenge.
There are certainly crap jobs too, but even with the high volume crap jobs I found myself challenged to ram out as many parts possible in 8 hours.
Anyway, I think it's a decent trade. Once you have experience it also opens doors to better jobs and different jobs.
Thanks for your input.
