* Uses the Flux Cored Arc Welding process to tack weld various small components to round or formed shafts to make a pole assembly for the welder to weld
* The pole assembly generally consists of a round tube or formed shaft, baseplate, hand hole, arm mounting simplex, tenon top, vangs, step lugs, ladder clips, and/or other small parts.
* Read and interpret drawings to determine parts needed to assemble pole.
* Frequently pushes, pulls, and lifts up to 50 lbs.
* Read and interpret drawings to assure proper location of various small part attachments.
* Layout various locations on round tube or formed shaft based upon interpretation of drawings and specifications.
* Uses measuring tape, level, square, and angle finders to measure distances and angles. Adds, subtracts, multiplies, and divides feet, inches, fractions, and decimals. Uses table to convert fractions to decimals and decimals to fractions.
* Uses plasma torch and oxy-fuel torch to cut steel.
* Moves around round tube or formed shaft as necessary to get into proper position to accurately measure and assemble components described above including standing on elevated platform when necessitated by the size of the shafts.
* Uses motorized grinders, motorized buffers, stone grinders, and drills to help assemble pole assembly according to prescribed specifications, codes and drawing.
* Wears protective face shield and safety glasses to protect eyes and face.
* Adjusts welding machine to achieve desired results within parameters of established welding procedures by changing tips, ceramic cups, and electrodes in plasma torch as needed to achieve.
* Uses chipping hammer, wire brush, motorized grinder, and motorized wire brush at various times to clean welded area.
* Uses pneumatic drills and magnetic drills to drill and ream various sizes holes in poles as required by the drawing.
* Wears protective equipment, including safety glasses, insulated welding gloves, welding cap, leather sleeves, and/or cape, and welding hood for protection against hot metal, arc rays, and grinding debris.
* Performs visual inspecting and identifies material discrepancies to assure welds have been completed satisfactorily in compliance with applicable drawings and specifications.
* Uses a weld gauge to measure weld size.
* Must have 2 or more years in welding using flux core or metal core, experience in fit up work following blueprint specs and in the utility pole industry or 1 inch plate.
* Must have knowledge of basic shop mathematics, addition, subtraction, fractions, multiplication and decimals.
* Proficiency in reading complex prints and specifications.
* Know how to properly use a weld gauge.
