PPE Ear Saver

I have been making these “Ear Savers” for local medical personnel.  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic anyone working near other people is wearing masks.  Many of these masks use elastic around the users ears.  Wearing these masks for a short time is easy, wearing them for 8 hours can cause physical harm.  This is my small way of helping. I cut this on my old Emblaser 1, 4W at 100% and 300 mm/min I used 1/32 black Acetal.  I couldn’t find thin acrylic local.

I don’t have a good picture of one in use but hopefully you can figure it out.  If you want to make some for your local providers I am happy to share the file.  What is the best way to do that on this forum?

Very nice.  I for one would like a copy of the file.




Here is a link to the files in my sharepoint

I think this is the best way to send it.


This is great work John.
