Each mine usually had its own blacksmith and carpenter.

 The blacksmith would carry out jobs such as reforging (reshaping) the drills, as well as mending and refurbishing all manner of metal equipment and tools.The Carpenter would  make, and repair all wooden objects and structures around the mine, especially in the mill.
