Bill Jones

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.

Below are a few Dano machines built in the style of Bill Jones.
