Weighs and measures dimensions of electrodes to determine if specifications are met, using scale, calipers, and straightedge. Marks disposition of electrodes on parts, using chalk, and records findings and disposition of electrodes. May compute density of electrodes, according to plant formula, using slide rule. May inspect samples of graphitized electrodes or green carbon stock impregnated with pitch or linseed oil and be designated Impregnation Inspector.
