A machinist is a tradesperson who machines using hand tools and machine tools to create or modify a part that is made of metal, plastics, or wood.
A machinist is usually called upon when a part needs to be produced from a material by cutting. Such a part may be unique or may be needed in the thousands. This could include a machinery part for a production line or anything that can be made from metal or plastic. Producing a part will often require several steps and more than one machine tool. Each machine tool plays a specific role in cutting away excess material.
