The job will require lifting if you are changing from vises and fixtures. You may get some looks from potential employers based on your appearance. Not a lot of petite women go into that line of work. If you show them you can do the job and have the knowledge, you should have no problem.

yes, as long as you use your body correctly to avoid strain.
