- May 7, 2002while jingasa are not exactly a difficult or hard
i might have a source that can make me a limited
number for free, and since the price is right.:)
what im wondering if people can help me with is...
1. for the normal wear ones... does anyone know what
thickness the metal should be in order to be
historically accurate.im sure this isnt an exact
standard but a rough idea would help. also it seems
the angle of the cone varies to a degree but does any
one have a rough idea of the degrees of pie shape
removed from the circle, or the approximate pitch of
the finished cone. my best guess is between
45degrees and67.5 degrees of the circle removed and im
leaning toward the latter figure. any suggestions??
2. for combat.... has anyone fought heavy with one?
and if so what guage steel did you use? i know its a
little strange but it will complement the tatami do im
working on well. i think i can disgusie the back of
the helm made to sca standards fairly well with
something to simulate any number of things dangled of
the back,(tatami do style plates , or cloth,etc) but
im curious how the edges of the main cone will take
the abuse. i was thinking that if necessary i could
roll the edge. any one have input/ suggestions/
experiences/ recomended thicknesses with and without
rolling. im figuring 16 will definately need a roll
while 14 might take the abuse.
