What does a Wire Frame Lampshade Maker do?

Constructs wire lampshade frames, working from blueprints, sketches, and models, using handtools and wireworking machines: Builds jig of heavy gauge wire to fix position of framing members and hold them in position during production assembly and welding operations, using handtools. Inserts forming blocks and wire stops into machines and adjusts stops and rollers, using handtools. Loads automatic wire-cutting machine and feeds lengths of wire cut to size into wire-forming roller and bending machines. Positions top and bottom frame rings over jig and spot welds framing members to rings.
