The American Rotary Video Contest Winner is. . .

NYC CNC Machine Shop! Congratulations on an outstanding comeback!

First and foremost, we want to sincerely thank all of those who participated in our #WeAreAmericanMade contest. Back in March, we got the idea to do the contest as a way to showcase those who make America great through the things they build, make, create, and/or operate. We were truly impressed by the wide variety of submissions as a number of businesses and individuals tagged their photos and videos throughout April and May. So much so, that it only seemed right to allow the fans choose the winner!

An amazingly skilled knife maker at Partridge Knives jumped out to an early lead, but before long NYC CNC Machine Shop came back to take the lead and capture the contest with a relentless 118 votes and 50% of the total vote. We will be in contact with you shortly to acknowledge your victory and make plans to come out and see what your shop is all about!

NYC CNC was started in 2007 when John purchased a TAIG desktop CNC milling machine for his Manhattan apartment.  John had been trying to bring a product to market and struggled working with machine shops for one-off prototypes and tweaks.  He started a now-popular YouTube Channel documenting successes & failures while learning the many skillsets of machining and fabrication.  NYC CNC has since grown out of Manhattan to a proper shop with a Tormach PCNC 1100 CNC Mill, an Emco V13 lathe, a 4’x4′ CNC Plasma Cutter and various of machining and fabrication equipment.

John and NYC CNC will be relocating their operations this summer and we are excited to visit him and create a custom video featuring his #WeAreAmericanMade business.



From self-made machinists like NYC CNC Machine Shop, to innovative pioneers like the Hydrogen House Project, to independent craftsmen and craftswomen, such as Ashley Harwood, it is clear that we all play a substantial role in both the American economy and American quality of life. Without any of you we wouldn’t even have the ability to do what we do and we couldn’t appreciate all of you enough.

We were excited to connect personally with John Saunders at NYC CNC  to learn more about how he started his business in a small Manhattan apartment and has helped thousands of people around the world with his “how-to” videos on his popular YouTube channel.  NYC CNC is a machine and fabrication shop located outside New York City specializing in prototype development, design-for-manufacturing evaluation, fabrication, and machining. From milling and casting to welding and bending, NYC CNC loves executing on ideas.

We also visited with Mike Striziki of the Hydrogen House Project. Hydrogen House Project is a non-profit organization dedicated to the pursuit of clean and renewable solutions to help meet the world’s increasing energy demand.  Inventor Mike Striziki founded the organization to educate the public while conducting research on hydrogen and other clean energy technologies.
