    Default How its made: Cains New Yorker

    They just showed how leather helmets were made on, 'How its made'. Interesting stuff, it showed more than the tour at the Cairns factory in Jersey.

    On a more serious note, I dont know how credible this info is, but I got it off foolsinternationals guest book/info

    Hope everyone had a chance to check out Rusty's link to leather helmets. I have it from a very good source that Cairns is moving there production factory down south to save money and none of Cairns employees in Clifton, NJ are going with them. All of there experience will no longer making a vital componet of our history and our heritage. If any of you have tried to have a helmet repaired or get parts know what I mean. I have also heard that the future of leather helmet production hangs in the balance. Helmet sales are down and most departments will not pay the added expense of a leather when plastic will do. I realize we are not a poltical entity nor should be, however I have written MSA/Cairns on this issue voicing my great disapointment. I hope others may do the same. Please excuse me if others feel my statements are out of line. I just feel that this is another component of the fire service traditions slowly fading away, only to be forgotten.

    After viewing the video it doesnt look like all that much is required to make it. Ive seen more resourceful things in the firehouse than what they have in the factory.
