    Default Help, Helmet Shield Question!

    Does anyone know how to make these shields or where I can learn? Someone in my area makes them, and I really want to get into it. From what I can gather he is the only person to make them. The lettering and numbers are all 3D. Thanks!

    Cairns still makes them. Paul Conway still makes them. There are also one or two other Mfr's that still make them as well.

    I guess anyone with knowledge of leatherwork could probably make them- such as a tannery or a tack shop?????

    Thumbs up Uh...... Yeah.........

    Go on the Watch Desk, www.thewatchdesk.com and go to the DCFD menu. Ask on there, (if you don't get an answer here) as there are several DCFD guys who do stuff like that as a side business.
