How To Make A Face Visor against Corona Virus

This Is:

To: Masks & Corona Apps etc

By Julian H. Stacey

  • How To Make a Visor:
  • Take an A4 translucent cover sheet off front of a report.
  • Punch a line of square hole perforations all down one long side, using a Spiral Binder Punch. If you don't have access to such a punch, you could use a 2 ring punch. practice first on a bit of paper, to avoid messing up the spacing.
  • Take a wine cooler or largest round beer mat you can find, use as a template to mark off the 2 un-perforated corners.
  • & cut off the 2 corners that have no perforation holes (cut just inside the curved line so your visor has no marks).
  • Thread a long shoe/ boot lace or string through, needs to be about 80 cm or longer.
  • Tie shoe lace to size of head. Make it an easy knot to undo so you lay the plastic flat for transport
  • This simple doesn't work with glasses, & might steam up at times, but it's truly trivial, free, quick & fun to make, & folds flat with papers.
  • Maybe a whole school class might like to make some & take some home. They will first need time to scrounge (or buy) the plastic. Look in piles of old reports, property sales booklets & the like.
  • One can buy better, & some 3D printer projects make better, but a nuisance to store those with fixed frames.
  • Feel Free to forward to this link to anyone (& also any other Berklix links, if not locked or explicitly marked as should be locked).

This is the lazy, zero cost option for beginners: no shopping effort, & it stores flat, takes no space in a case, or merged amid a few papers. Proper ones have frames, allowing for reading glasses & cooling, but cost time & money to find (if not sold out in a pandemic) & money to buy, or time to find a frame built by 3D printer projects.
Free Offer:
If you do not have the required hole punch, but you plan to attend any event I may be at, eg a Beer Gardeners', If you know I will be attending, contact me in advance & arrange to bring a couple of sheets of raw A4 plastic, & I'll swap it for one that I've punched & cut. We'll give another to a friend.
Make sure the sheets are truly translucent, not slightly fuzzy / opaque. Make sure the sheets are not floppy ! Some of the common double sheet, with either open on 2 sides, or 4 holes down one side - they are too floppy.

How to repair the Spiral- Binde- Gerät CM 700

The Binder stayed in its cardboard box after purchase for 5 or more years before coming out of box for use in Corona Lock- Down 2020-07. The handle is spring loaded to go up. The cardboard box forced the handle in to down position, to take less space for shipping. The bottom anchors of the 2 springs were mere plastic. The plastic sheared off. The springs fell loose. I poked a needle nose soldering iron in the back plastic vertical wall creating 2 holes per spring base. A loop of stiff wire, pre formed, was then inserted through the holes from inside to outside, each spring was attached, curved end up to holes in the mechanism, & flat end down, to wire loop, then the loops were pulled out tight through the wall with heavy pliers, twisted together tight outside (& yet to be glued).
