    Cool video. If we ever had our presses and lathes set up like that video, the safety authorities would jail us!!

    Thank you very much for opening this thread. Who knows which pieces like those were used in my grand-parents' kitchen and maybe I played around with and used as a solid "helmet" when I was a child ?

    With best wishes

    I took these pictures at Ron R's last spring with his permission. If you know who Ron is, then you know if it exists - Ron likely has a least one (or more likely a bunch). Ron is a wealth of information and shares his amazing collection most generously on multiple collector's forums.

    I remember i saw a funny photo of a helmet converted into a tool with a long shaft for emptying old outhouse toilets. But that was back in the 1900s.

    Lots of these kitchen ware helmet conversions made at the time and you see them on ebay for sale every now and then.

    These are in a museum in the Nederlands.


    There have been threads on this subject previously, though perhaps not with the footage.
