Sir William Fairbairn, a millwright of the late 19th Century, wrote in his Treatise on Mills and Millwork, “…the millwright of the late centuries was an itinerant engineer and mechanic of high reputation. He could handle the axe, the hammer, and the plane with equal skill and precision…he could set out and cut in the furrows of a millstone with an accuracy equal or superior to that of the miller himself.”
As millwrights of today, our job is to remove, replace, relocate or install any piece of equipment or machinery with precision and safety. A millwright is concerned with the precision-fitting of machinery to tolerances of a thousandth of an inch. It is the millwright who installs and aligns heavy industrial machinery, including conveyor systems, escalators, electric generators, and cyclotrons, and insures that they operate efficiently. When that equipment or machinery requires maintenance, repairs or modifications, we can do that too.
So, since you asked, we thought we would clear this up.
