Hand Made, Hand Wrought ... definitions

I have been of the thought that hand made or wrought was a form made with no mechanical assistance at all ie "machine tools". That the resulting object was made entirely by hand tools ... hammers,punches,gravers,stakes,wood blocks, etc. And that you would stamp your art as so created. This is a big difference from other artists working in metal, as the process takes MUCH longer. Your thoughts?
