The wood working industry is NOW facing, or will VERY shortly, a complete supply chain OUT OF STOCK situation regarding N95 masks. The industry needs to accept they are no longer a necessary part of the economy should acceptable alternatives not be available. The industry needs to IMMEDIATELY donate / sell ALL available stock to/for medical needs. Additionally, the industry must openly, honestly & rationally discuss what we do moving forward.
