This all starts back in February after i got back surgery and i asked the nurses if I could keep my face mask. They gave me a weird look and i replied "i do haunted houses in October and I always tend to play a doctor of some sort" so they replied by filling a bag full of hospital stuff lol.

A few months ago a friend gave me an EL Wire dog leash but had pretty much striped it down to the bare EL Wire and battery box. So for months I was unable to think of any thing to use it with until I saw the EL Wire contest and finally figured out I could use it with my oxygen mask.

This instuctable should be easy enough for any one to do.

Also I would like to thank ever one who viewed and voted for my last submission for the usb contest


Step 1: lets get started, gather your supplys


You'll need some sort of oxygen mask with a tube, just mask sure there are enough air hole in the mask since you will be plugging up the tube.

One EL Wire dog leash, or you can purchase EL Wire from http://thatscoolwire.com/ along with a battery pack.


marker (if you want)
ruler or tape measure (if you want)
hot glue gun
also you will need some epoxy with / instead of the hot glue (edit)

Now if you couldn't find the dog leash el wire you will need to contruct your own el wire with battery pack set up, but you should be able to find the dog leach for under $20.

One important note make sure the el wire is as long or shorter than the tube because its alot easier to cut the tube.

when I was doing some wire-running in robots and bikes I found that compressed air and a bit of string is a great help.<br><br>Here is how:<br>1) Cut a piece of string about 3 inches longer then you need to run.<br>2) Tie one end to the wire you are running.<br>3) Place the end of the string in the tube<br>4) use compressed air to &quot;blow&quot; the string through the tube.<br><br>You may also get it to work with a vacuum on the opposing end!
thanks for the advice but with the el wire your really can't do that, but i do usually use that method for all the other stuff i build
No no. don't blow the el wire. Blow a piece of thread. Regardless you should be able to pull it if its straight.
i never said to blow the el wire, i said you cant do that since its such a tight fit the string would make it too wide to fit and it would just slide off the end because if you bend the l wire sharply it shorts out the wire
could work, but you could run into a few issues, i would test this out but the damn thing broke after it being built for only a day due to pre existing issues
its real?es verdad?
i would still like to know what your asking
huh? what do you mean is it real
