Baby Face Nelson
Lester Joseph Gillis (December 6, 1908 – November 27, 1934), known under the pseudonym George Nelson, was a bank robber and killer in the 1930s. Gillis was better known as Baby Face Nelson, a name given to him due to his youthful appearance and small stature. Usually referred to by criminal associates as "Jimmy", Nelson entered into a partnership with John Dillinger, helping him escape from prison in the famed Crown Point, Indiana Jail escape, and was later labeled along with the remaining gang members as public enemy number one.
On March 3, 1934, John Dillinger made his famous "wooden pistol" escape from the jail in Crown Point, Indiana. Although the details remain in some dispute, the escape is suspected to have been arranged and financed by members of Nelson's newly-formed gang, including Homer Van Meter, Tommy Carroll, Eddie Green, and John "Red" Hamilton, with the understanding that Dillinger would repay some part of the bribe money out of his share of the first robbery. The night Dillinger arrived in the Twin Cities, Nelson and his friend John Paul Chase were driving when they were cut off by a car driven by a local paint salesman named Theodore Kidder. Nelson lost his temper and gave chase, crowding Kidder to the curb. When the salesman got out to protest, Nelson fatally shot him. The six men would soon be identified as "the second Dillinger gang", due to Dillinger's extreme notoriety.
It is assumed in all makeMZ Rubber Band Guns
that the end user will decide how thick they want
the parts of the gun to be.
If you have a lower powered laser you can cut all parts from 3mm or 1/8th
inch woods and glue them as shown in the assembly guides.
Or you can use thicker materials if you have a more powerful laser
or CNC router. It is important to note that if cutting with a CNC router you will need to sand and file certain parts of the guns to get proper fitting square corners on parts.
Also, the length and size of bolts and nuts used are your choice, although we recommend
4-40 machine screws with T-nuts for a flush finish and if using metric you will need to use the equivalent.
You will need a selection of rubber bands, small springs and small eyelets and hooks to
complete most of these projects. These items should all be available at your local hardware store.
You can easily change the hole size in the DXF using your CAD software but do not change the position of holes.
You may also want to customize the guns stocks and handles using thicker exotic woods and sanding and engraving paths
The main trigger mechanisms and moving parts should be cut from 3mm or 1/8th
thick material in most cases.
