    How to make your own masks

    If you are so inclined, here are instructions on how to make your own mask out of fabric. This is written in german though, so you'll have to go by the pictures (skip to page 3 of this PDF):
    https://media.essen.de/media/wwwesse...wehr_Essen.pdf

    If anyone comes across other mask-making instructions please post in this thread. Personally though, if I feel the need to have an emergency mask (and I actually don't at this time), I will just tie a bandana around my face (and look very cool).

    UPDATE: Now that two people I know have caught the virus (and one - with pre-existing conditions - has died of a heart attack brought on by the virus) in the future, if I go out I will definitely cover my face with something.

    Why bother with a mask? I currently as a US citizen have a 0.044% chance of infection and a .00007 chance of death from this virus. If this was Vegas I would bet every penny I had that I will be fine. With my geographic location my chances of infection are even lower.

    Some are making masks for others. I know of healthcare workers who were using paper towels and rubber bands for masks. I just shipped them some actual n95 respirators but my supplies are starting to run low.

    That makes sense, there is never anything wrong with voluntary donation.

    Face Masks, Face Shields and... a home-made Ventilator!

    Instructables has quite a few.

    These are made from; Filter Fabric or other cloth, Wire, Sewing supplies, Electrical Tape
    https://www.instructables.com/id/Medical-Mask

    This one allows you to insert a non-woven filter.
    I wonder if certain types of non-woven weed barrier fabric (aka landscaping fabric) are an effective filter material?
    Made from; Paper, elastic, 1/4 yard cotton or cotton blend fabric, pipe cleaner
    https://www.instructables.com/id/Adj...or-Non-woven-/

    More masks and face shields:
    https://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-Face-Mask-Projects

    This person designed a homemade ventilator!
    “Goal for this project is to create a Homemade Medical Ventilator from the materials we have available all around for low price so that we can reproduce it anywhere fast.”
    https://www.instructables.com/id/Hom...al-Ventilator/

    Here it is in action:

    The funny thing is I have a mask! i bought some product years ago to kill bugs and it came with a mask and plastic gloves. I never once thought i'd need it...

    Its basically a face mask with a plastic thing in the center which i assume allows you to breathe,

    What a turnaround. The officials and politicians told us that masks don't help, and it's all about washing your hands. Now they have done a 180 on both of those positions. Now there is no surface transmission, and masks are important. I;ll agree with that, because it has been my position the entire time.

    Not all Doctors agree with the WHO and the Surgeon General about the value of masks.

    I've been thinking about hot stamping them with two large soup ladles out of tripled landscape fabric, trim, attach elastic, and hot glue an aluminum nose bridge = N95.

    'We endorse the idea of voluntarism; self-responsibility: Family, friends, and churches to solve problems, rather than saying that some monolithic government is going to make you take care of yourself and be a better person. It's a preposterous notion: It never worked, it never will. The government can't make you a better person; it can't make you follow good habits.' - Ron Paul 1988

    Yeah, I was thinking about landscaping fabric - the real filtery kind that's used to stop dirt from clogging up the gravel you put in to create some drainage - or you put it under pavers. I have half-used rolls of the stuff around somewhere.

    I'm buying a sewing machine tomorrow. This is the design I'm going to try.



    I like the Olson design because it has a pouch where you can put a filter.

    Couple weeks ago I got 3 pairs of masks in the mail that were made by one of my neighbors. The sentiment was nice, but I highly doubt I'll be using them.

    Apparently, I'll have to wear one to work next week so I took some Crown Royal bags and made masks. I have one in Apple, Peach, and Vanilla - don't have one in the classic purple...yet.
