Sources disagree on the precise nature of this job - one defines it as a "man employed to service the tunnels and rails in the haulage system", while another defines it as a "person who takes the roof down to give more height". The latter appears to be confirmed by a modern metal man, but possibly a metal man did both of these or the name was used differently in different areas.
