Schedule building improvements and write grants to help fund them.
Operates pipe-wrapping machine to coat pipelines with asphalt or other corrosion-resisting compounds and wrap them spirally with fabrics, such as glass cloth and felt paper, to form protective coating that prevents electrolytic decomposition of oil and gas pipelines: Inspects paper holders and observes flow of hot compounds into reservoir to maintain adequate supply of materials. Starts engine and moves levers to activate mechanism that rotates paper head around pipe and propels machine along pipeline. Turns valves to regulate flow of dope to coat pipe. Adjusts brake tension on paper reels with handtools to ensure tight wrapping.
