Men's Shed produces vital face masks

Great to hear that the fine folk at Kinross and District Men’s Shed are doing their bit during the pandemic. Various news outlets have reported on how the shedders are making Polylactic Acid (PLA) face shields for key workers. Here's what KDMS chairman, David Connor, told Third Force News:
“KDMS wanted to help and one of our shedders, Jim Forbes, started working in his shed at home to come up with a solution to meet the demand for this life-saving protective equipment. The shedders have really stepped up and there is a team of around 12-15 of us involved in taking and recording orders, administration, printing, assembly, quality checks and delivery. More and more shedders are becoming involved each day to lend a helping hand to this cause."
With supplies running low, you can help keep their efforts going by donating via their Go Fund Me page.

The KDMS has created instructions and 3D Printer files (STL files and G-codes) and is more than happy to share these with other Men's Sheds interested in providing a similar service. --------------------------------------
