Mechanics that are machinists are the ones that love to get their hands dirty. They are always working in, on, or under a machine. Don’t be surprised to find a machinist taking something apart just to put it back together again. They enjoy learning new ways to repair old things. They are a mech operator’s closest companion as they can repair any structural damage done to virtually any machine. They can also work on the indoor plumbing or electrical systems inside a machine or structure, regardless of the size.
