Nice instructable! But now I'm going to have Fleet Foxes in my head all day singing:"I was following the pack, all swaddled in their coatsWith scarves of red tied 'round their throatsTo keep their little heads from falling in the snow, and I turned 'round and there you goAnd Michael, you would fall and turn the white snow red as strawberries in summertime"
This hits every category for a great instructable:1. Born of a simple but salient need.2. Prototyping with discussion of failures.3. Over engineered for the task.4. Built a tool out of plywood that essentially could be bought.5. Built with basic garage tools, not cut on a $15,000 laser cutter.Bravo. This is a truly "best of" post. Can't wait to see your spouse-friendly version. :)
No restriction from the federal level on disposing of smoke detectors under 5 μCi in the US (source: https://www.usfa.fema.gov/downloads/pdf/techtalk/t...). According to the source, modern consumer units are under 1 μCi.That being said, anyone reading this should not attempt to open the ion chamber. Even though consumer grade detectors have a tiny amount of radioactive material, Americium is a "bone seeker". Meaning if it gets into your system your body tends to metabolize it and deposit it in your bones instead of passing through your urine.
Does the acrylic emulsion make the mask hard like plastic, or is it still pliable like foam?
