turner/lathe operator
Explanation:
Depending on what exactly the man does, these are the possible options per Ernst:

Ernst Deutsch-Englisch : Zerspanungsmechaniker m, Dreher m / lathe operator turner
Ernst Deutsch-Englisch : Zerspanungsmechaniker m, Automateneinrichter m / set-up man for automatic lathes
Ernst Deutsch-Englisch : Zerspanungsmechaniker m, Fräser m / milling worker, milling machine o. boring mill operator
Ernst Deutsch-Englisch : Zerspanungsmechaniker m, Schleifer m / grinding machine operator

In light of your other question on Lang- und Kurzdrehen, I'm thinking that "turner/lathe operator" might fit best.
