If you want a defunct profession, there Mother repairer.

Once of my favorites from the Dictionary of Occupational Title, but I doubt it exists today.

The job entails making repairs and preparing to the die used to stamp out vinyl records. If it broke or went bad, you'd fix it. Vinyl still exists, but it's such a niche market that I doubt there is any need for a dedicated person to do it.
"If a person saying he was something was all there was to it, this country'd be full of rich men and good-looking women. Too bad it isn't that easy.... In short, when someone else says you're a writer, that's when you're a writer... not before."
Purveyor of fine science fiction since 1982.
