What is a Millwright?
Millwrights are skilled construction mechanics who study and interpret blueprints and then put their knowledge and expertise to work drilling, welding, and bolting in order to have a perfect fit. Millwrights sometimes work to specifications requiring tolerances to a thousandth of an inch.
