Welding Tips and Tricks Podcast

Dec 26, 2016

Hi and thank you for listening to episode 23 of the Welding Tips and Tricks Podcast.  For this episode we had a fun chat with John Saunders from NYC CNC on youtube and @saundersmachineworks on Instagram.  We chatted about Fusion 360 and CNC machining along with much more!  If you've been wanting to branch out from just welding this podcast is for you.  John's story is very inspirational and eye opening, so download, pop those earbuds in, hit play, drop that hood, and enjoy!
