I was called in to take the test for the Mechanic B Steam Test. I passed the GUW test and the Steam Written Test. I now have to go in for the hands on Steam Mechanical test. Anyone know what is involved for the hands on tests?

Thanks for the tips. What sort of things do they make you do for the pump alignment, pipe fitting, and rigging?

cut thread and join 1/2" pipes, tie knots (bowline etc) and align a pump using a mock up simulator per the Con Ed approved methods showing your calculations and final moves.

Thanks! Pretty familiar with that stuff. For the cutting is it with manual dies, manual pipe cutter, or is it a machine?

I assume it aligning a pump to a motor? So I assume they set it up and you are to show them using a dial indicator how they are out of alignment 360*?

Guess I should brush up on my knots lol

No I never had an interview. I took the tests last week and got a call to do the practical Thursday. I might have to reschedule, because of a family emergency.
I am pretty confident doing all of that stuff, just not sure if they use a laser setup or dials for the pump/motor.

Dials, pararel sliding bars, micrometer and a form sheet with the formula calculations to use. Take 4 measurements with the pararell sliders at 0 degree, 90, 180 and at 270 degrees. then average them out. you'll know when you see it. formula is something like Dia. of face x distance divided by gap if I remember correctly.

Ok sounds familiar, I always used a laser at the other power plants to align pumps. Is it a pass/fail type of practical test, or is it to see if you have some idea how to use tools and are mechanically inclined.

I am still confused why I did not get an interview before this test. People keep telling me they tell you about the practical after the interview.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
