1898-1969

Bill was a tattooer/machine builder that built machines for Charlie Wagner's supply company. His machining skills as a builder were unsurpassed at the time. He is best known for his "Jonesy" design, but is also credited with building the first "bakelite" (an early predecessor to plastic) machine.
