What does a Chamfering-Machine Operator I do?

Tends battery of machines that flare mouths of shell cases to facilitate insertion of bullets: Lubricates and starts each machine and starts flow of compressed air to cool chamfering tools. Observes cases sliding down feed and discharge tubes, repositioning any that are out of order. Observes cutting tools in operation to ensure proper functioning and replaces, sharpens, and resets them as necessary. Examines samples from each machine for burrs, ragged edges, or scratches and determines that dimensions are within prescribed tolerances, using variety of gauges and measuring tools.
