Machine Shop Tours: Always Sunny in the Shop

September 28, 2020 11:09 am


Machinist and YouTuber Aaron Durda (@AlwaysSunnyintheShop) gave us a tour of his neat shop and showed us some of the most recent restoration projects he’s been working on.

Located in the hot and sunny Phoenix area, Aaron approached the machining trade in 2017 and has been hooked ever since. Ever since he discovered his passion for the metalworking, Aaron has been spending his time building his shop. In particular, he focused his efforts on buying, restoring, and selling vintage pieces of machinery such as vises or drill presses. The star of his shop, a Monarch Lathe series 60, features a powered compound, a quite uncommon characteristic that makes this model pretty special.
