Job Description
When a Soldier needs a part made or repaired right away, they look to Machinists for assistance. Army National Guard Machinists utilize their knowledge, skills, and expertise to repair broken parts, modify old ones, or fabricate replacements for all equipment.

They achieve this by operating lathes, drill presses, grinders, welding gear, and other machine shop equipment.
