What does a machinist do?

Machinists use machine tools, such as lathes, milling machines, and grinders, to produce precision metal parts. They use their knowledge of the working properties of metals and their skill with machine tools to plan and carry out the operations needed to make machine products that meet precise specifications. The parts the machinists make touch almost every item produced or made in some manner. (US Department of Labor Occupational Outlook Handbook.)
