Starting a business can be a challenge, even for John Saunders of NYC CNC.
Many Tormach customers know John Saunders, in fact there are many that know Tormach because of John Saunders and his YouTube channel, NYC CNC. Saunders started his path to CNC machining by sleeping next to his mill in a one-bedroom apartment in New York. He began machining parts for others for fun, when his eyes turned to Tormach. “It’s all I wanted,” he explains. “This thing, the PCNC 1100, was a monster machine for me.”
Starting a business can be a daunting task. One of the biggest challenges can be gauging excitement with decision-making, and making sure those decisions are what’s best for the business. While starting a business can be stressful, becoming your own boss has an array of fantastic rewards, as well. To help navigate the best practices for a startup, we asked a few of our in-house experts for some insight and tips on starting a machining business.
Our second annual open house opens tomorrow, bright and early at 8:30. We were hoping to have 150 visitors registered before Saturday, instead we managed 192! There is still room, so RSVP and help us reach 200. Last year’s first annual open house was a fantastic success, but this year we’re looking to set the bar higher with seminars on everything from CAM and workholding to small business applications for Tormach equipment.
