I have a B.S. in physics so that's what I went there to teach, but they needed a math teacher really badly and asked me to do that too. No big deal, its a small school so I don't teach that many physics classes as much as I do math. Being good at rudimentary math just comes with the territory.

If you want to be a CNC machinist, yes.

If you want to be a manual machinist, no, BUT, you had better be prepared for it. If you don't know how to read a micrometer, do math, or read engineering drawings, you're going to fail. You also need to be able to solve problems every day. It's a job that requires more than just common sense, you need to be creative. Manual machining is on a whole other level of tradesmanship. The newer computerized technology is onions as fuck, most CNC machinists I know are just clueless faggots with failed mechanical engineering degrees and this was all they could get.

Struck a nerve?

I didn't say all CNC machinists were like this. I said most. There's nothing more cliche than when some pencil pushing cunt in the office with an engineering degree thinks he can be a machinist just because he took a shitty certification class that issues him a piece of paper saying he knows fucking G Code. This is the same guy who refers to a decimal equivalence chart every time he needs to know a simple fraction like 27/32nds. This is the same guy who programs his parts to the fucking fifth decimal place because his mechanical engineering textbook taught him that every dimension needs to be perfectly accurate and according to "theory" in order to make a reliable part This is the same guy who watches meme machining youtube videos of guys running their feeds at 800IPM and then goes to the plant manager the next day and explains to him how "hurr durr our production would be so much faster if we pushed our machines harder". The button pushers are the worst because they are usually the kids fresh out of CNC school who think they are as cool and knowledgable as the guys who have been there for 45 years.

There are good CNC machinists, and there are bad ones. Just as there are good manual operators, and bad ones.
