Nice type 90

Recommended Posts

Nice text book and complete, unmessed with Japanese type 90. Came out of China and most likely from the 2nd sino war. Thanks to my friend Paul Fisher. This is the best one I have ever owned, and has been on my want list for many years. Proud and very happy to have this one on my shelf!

Very nice mate, I am still trying to find an engineering company who will make the small studs that hold the internal brackets for the securing straps, Mark did an amazing job on those brackets and sent me those quite a while back. I will get it done somehow, I have,nt given up looking or trying

I,m not sure those are the ones mate, look on the outside of the helmet, there are two small studs which go through the helmet and secure the internal piece that those round rings attache to, its those small studs that I ,m having trouble with, I cant get them anywhere nor get anyone to make them, Mark made the internal pieces and I have them, but without those studs I cant do anything, its driving me barmy

@Davejbgive me a couple of days and I will see about building you some studs/rivets I may have to use copper or aluminum instead of steel though the upside is they will be easier to set..

Morning @Davejb been a busy week at work I have built a little press to get the top of the rivet heads the right size so I will get on them early next week... Any chance you could measure the circumference of the hole in the helmet body were the rivets/studs will be passing through I would hate to guess and you receive them and the are to large to pass through the holes...
