F. Burgess used to sell those ventilator screens.  I don't know if anyone does now or not.  They looked fairly practical to me.

Every hardware store sells those round aereators for faucets. (Used to be a ready supply in every faucet for putting a screen in certain pipe bowls for smoking.) Couple with a large size brass grommet used in tentage or flags, and you could reproduce it fairly close I think. Although I'm not familiar with that exact type, and from the picture it may not be a brass frame circling the screen vent.

I've been in contact with Jim Kanne at Eureka Arsenal, and he offers pretty much all the period U.S. hats.  He also still offers the shoes, so he's got both ends covered!

So Jim Kanne at Eureka Arsenal is still in business?  Does that mean his health and recovery are better or is he limiting it to hats and shoes?

BTW, the image taken in China above, that is a M1899 Campaign hat with the large vent.  A really good picture of one indeed!

I spoke with him a couple of months ago and he is indeed limiting his business to hats and shoes... and the way I understood he's limiting the shoes to what he has on hand.

From what he told me, his health only allows him to do the hats, and he still has quite a few shoes.  I think some of the health issues involved carpal tunnel, and he can't really make the brass parts anymore.  I asked him to send pictures of the hats he does so we could post them here.  I think they look really good, but you would be a better judge of that.

I just went through the thread and saved a bunch of pics. Sadly there were not many redlegs in it and most were SAW and later but I was happy with what I got.

Thanks guys,

I see he updated his page and is going into hats full time, and expanding his range.  Looks like a good source for M1876 and all variations of the drab hat are or will be available soon.  Knowing Jim, they will be GREAT hats!

I ordered an M1883 campaign hat from him last month. I look forward to getting it. I will let you all know how it comes out.

Well deleting the post don't remove the quote.  The question is still there with no answer.

This last one he deleted because once again I asked him to post pictures of him in the uniforms he claims to own.

I'd say I'm near 100% sure he hasn't done any bussiness with the companies he claims to have or even has any uniforms.  Seen too many folks over the years tell you all about the cool stuff they own and then can never produce it when asked. ;)

Del, Maybe doesn't have the time to take all those pictures of his extensive collection.  Maybe when he retires, he will have enough spare time to do so. I  carry mine around in the bed of my GMC, locked up. It's sorta like Fibber McGee's closet.
