So now that the pandemic has the world wearing masks, elastic in stores is the new toilet paper as millions are diy-ing them.

Let's see those masks.

My default was an ordinary bandana, but Mrs. Fixer is making me a manly man red neck approved mask with John Deere tracker hats plastered all over it.

Just some basic 3M N95 maskes I had at the desert house for some reason, I Can't remember. I Dont fix things anymore, and I have not done yard work since the 70's so I really cannot say why they were here but I'm glad I have them.

My son has been 3D printing mask blanks for commonly available 2"x2" replaceable air purifier filters. He's adding elastic and some foam as a seal. No pic of his old man... :nana: I'm using blue surgical masks over a very full beard just as a reminder not to touch my face, I know it's ineffective but it's taken me 2 1/2 years to grow. Anything more than a grocery run a week, I might shave it. Or if I needed to go to Wally World... :eek:

I gave one of these to my MD Friend, and kept two more should my family need them. I got them after 9-11 when my wife was getting panicky due to all the RED and Yellow Alerts that were continually interrupting TV shows.

Been using surgical masks found in a bunch of emergency survival kits and N95 masks I bought in 2007 to filter ash and smoke during the Witch Creek fire. Can't buy new masks as Home Depot, Lowes, and Harbor Freight donated all of them to hospitals. Not planning on donating mine as there are several family members that are immune compromised including me. Definitely prefer to err on the side of caution when going to see a doctor right now. I think it's pretty messed up to have the stores donate all the good masks, require you to wear one in public, tell people they can make one out of clothes, and then start blocking off the clothing section in stores calling it nonessential.

It's that Carhartt hat covering your chrome dome that makes them suspicious KG.

Mrs Fixer made a couple for me to share at work.
