Bias Tape Makers
Bias tape makers help make the pleats in the fabric masks. They can be 3d printed and are helpful to the community making these masks.
Surgical Mask Straps
The surgical mask straps hold the elastic that normally is held by a health worker's ears. It helps save the irritation caused by prolonged usage. These can be 3d printed.
