SUMMARY OF RESPONSIBILITIES
The Machinist is responsible for installing the vessel’s machinery, such as propelling machinery, auxiliary motors, pumps, ventilating equipment, and steering gears. They typically work from blueprints and use hand tools, calipers, and micrometers. The Machinists will lay out passage holes on bulk heads, decks, and other surfaces for connections, such as shafting and steam lines. They install below deck auxiliaries, such as evaporators, stills, heaters, pumps, condensers, and boilers and connect them to steam pipe systems. Machinists are also responsible for testing and inspecting installed machinery and equipment during dock and sea trials. They may set-up and operate such machine shop tools as a lathe, boring mill, planer, shaper, slotter, and milling machine to fabricate replacement parts.
