Tests operation of machines and typewriters to detect loose and binding parts and to determine synchronization of related parts. Bends and taps parts into alignment, using pliers and mallets. Turns compensating screws to set parts at specified tensions and clearances. Verifies tensions and clearances of parts, using tension scales and space and feeler gauges. May ream and tap holes and file and fit carriages and covers of equipment, using hand reamer, tap, and file.
