IN THE BEGINNING.........
Updated On: Mar 30, 2011

 In the early days of North America millwrights designed and constructed the mills where flour and grist was ground by water power.  Water was directed over hand-constructed wooden mill wheels to turn big wooden gears and generate power.  Millwrights executed every type of engineering operation in the construction of these mills.  Shortly after the Brotherhood was established in the 1880's, millwrights were admitted to the Brotherhood membership.

 

If you like to work with machine tools and precision instruments, and have a keen eye for the perfect fit, you might consider being a millwright.  Millwrights sometime work to specifications requiring tolerances to a thousandth of an inch.  In the old days, before heavy metal machinery, millwrights carved our gears and shafts from wood for mills and small industrial plants.  Today millwrights are an elite group of construction workers who work primarily in metal and with machinery and equipment requiring precision.
