firstly thanks alot for the information that has been provided in answering my questions on the forum to date.
I would however be greatful if someone could help me answer the following questions regarding the job of a Turner(working with steel)
a) Is a Turner the same as a first class machinist.
b) In what ways does the remit of a Turner differ from that of say a general machinist.Does a Turner train in differnet methods of turning.
c)Do Turners use other types of machinery or than a lathe?
d) What are the most difficult products to turn and how long does it take to achieve the skills necessary to achieve
the level of machining required to make them?
