The Peekskill based tech company is printing "bias tape jigs" that make it easier to sew a cloth face mask.

Peekskill's Bantam Tools has been doing its part to assist in whatever way it can during the COVID-19 crisis.

In addition to donating its desktop milling machines to organizations that would find them useful for creating tools to assist during the pandemic, the company has also used its expertise to create tools for local groups sewing cloth face masks that experts now recommend people wear to stop the spread.

These little plastic tools, called bias tape jigs, can halve the time it takes to sew a fabric face mask.

The bias tape jigs -- or "do-hickies" as Bantam calls them -- are free and can be picked up outside the Bantam Tools HQ at 417 Main Street.

Grab the jigs outside of Bantam Tools HQ.

The 3D printing files are also available online at https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4234257 for those with their own 3D printers.
