I started this 11 page topic back on 7-19 with a suggestion that John Dillinger might qualify. RPease suggested that although he might"... have modified his weapons and maybe made some improvements , but I hardly think
that qualifies him as a machinist."
I'm quoting a book written by Dary Matera titled "The Life and Death of America's First Celebrity Criminal", Dillinger was employed in a mechanic's position at James P. Burcham's Reliance Specialty Company, a machine shop in SW Indianapolis for a period of four years. I believe the term mechanic and machinist at that time period would be somewhat interchangeable. A later reference in the book mentions his enjoying operating a screw machine.
Not picking on you , RPease, just providing some reference
For what it is worth...

Huh. I thought in his day he thought the banks were the screw machines. These days it must be the credit card companies.
