Default Ear Savers - Part Two

I thought the need was over, but apparently not. With the extended mask wearing stuff going on now, I have received additional requests for ear savers.

If anyone needs some, or knows anyone that could use them, please let me know. There is no charge for them. I can get them out right away (a day or two). All I need is a mailing address to send them to. Recently, I helped out a fellow 3dprinter on FB by making and sending him 100 to go along with his. They were headed to the Vet clinic at Texas A&M.

Thanks again to all who have supported my effort. These "ear savers" help minimize the pain associated with wearing the masks that have elastic ear loops for long periods of time. Again and again, the complaints I have received are all the same..."the pain is terrible from having to wear the masks all day".

Note: I can also provide the "clips" shown in the picture. They work with a ponytail holder. While these might not be suitable for use in a medical setting, they could be used in other places like nursing homes, retirement homes, businesses, schools, etc. I personally use a single clip attached to the mask on one side, and clip to the other side...and I don't have to worry about losing it because it is attached to the mask.

Production is over 5400 and counting. I have both machines running.

Several people have asked how they can help out. I finally gave in and created an Amazon gift list. Any items you purchase will be used for ear saver production. Thanks in advance. I really appreciate all the support I have received.

Nice job Mike and keep it going. Seems here in Upstate NY things have definitely quieted down. Keeping my fingers crossed it continues and to all those in harms way please stay safe and healthy for your family. Have taken this time to update parts on my 3 printers so they are ready when I need to start ramping things up again.

Mike I just read yesterday in Great Britton they canceled an order of several million dollars for masks since they were not tight enough to meet standards when looped over the ears and I immediately thought of you and the ear savers would take care of that problem.
