About NYC CNC: In 2005, John was struggling to bring a product to market. Hoping a basic knowledge of machining would help make prototypes and communicate with machine shops, he bought a small milling machine. Almost ten years later, he now runs NYC CNC, where he loves working with customers and machines for job-shop work, design-for-manufacturing and product development. A largely self-taught machinist, he shares many of his endeavors on his successful YouTube channel which focuses on home shop manufacturing. For more information, see
