So to clarify, the balloonist contributed to the design of this type of hat, and later, after the balloonist died, OH (meaning the "he" in the puzzle statement) also contributed to the design?

I am confused. Did OH contribute to the design of this type of hat? Did he do something else involving this type of hat?

BLOOPER

OH didn't contribute at all to the design of the hats. What he did was design something else.

And did he sell this something else that he designed? Did he make money from doing this?

Are there any other people relevant to this puzzle? Any other designs of things relevant to the puzzle?

So other than the balloonist's hats, and the thing that OH designed from which he got rich, was anything else relevant designed by the balloonist? by OH? by anyone else?

Were the members of this category of things designed after the balloonist's hats? before OH's machines? Were the designs inspired by the balloonist's hats? Did they inspire OH's machines?

***** RECAP *****

OH, a man who lived in the 19th century, had cause to be grateful to a balloonist, who also lived in the 19th century (though not for very much of it).

OH's gratitude has nothing to do with the balloonist's aeronautical activities as such - although it is relevant that he flew balloons - but with OH's profession.

The balloonist made a significant contribution to the design of a certain type of hat - this was, in fact, a bonnet that in many ways resembled a balloon, and was named after the balloonist (you have not actually found this out, so count it as a hint :))

OH designed a process, based on the manufacture of the bonnets in question. This process was very useful in a number of ways, but particularly in the building of some kind of machinery.

Was the bonnet designed to hold its shape by retaining air?
Was it similar in design to the traditional chef's hat?

Is the process to do with the storage of gases? the movement of gases?
Is the machinery something along the lines of bellows? a steam engine?

Did the balloonist change the material that the hats were made from? or did he change the way in which the normal material was used?
After the balloonist's adjustments to their manufacture, did the hats look different? behave differently? taste different? were they used in different environments or situations?

Were the machines involved in the manufacture of fabrics?

Did the balloonist change the material that the hats were made from? no or did he change the way in which the normal material was used? no, not really. He wasn't involved in the manufacturing process at all - the bonnets were just named after him because they looked like hot-air balloons. See my plural namesake for more information :)

After the balloonist's adjustments to their manufacture, did the hats look different? yes behave differently? no taste different? although the expression "I'll eat my hat" was not uncommon in the early 18th century, no record survives of the gustatory details were they used in different environments or situations? no - they just became fashionable. Why women wear the clothes they do is one of the Eternal Mysteries, and not subject to analysis by mortals.

Were the machines involved in the manufacture of fabrics? no
