Behold!
Mr. Corwin L. Linkletter’s
Ætheric Essence Breath Filtration Apparatus™

Tired of feeling faint, getting a case of the vapours or even passing out while exploring the unknown, working on an experiment or tinkering on a Device? Brought to your attention by the good people at Æther Devices, Items and Inventions Incorporated, Mr. Corwin L. Linkletter has the answer to your problems! With a few small adjustments and re-application of common items a Tinker or Engineer can easily procure, one might produce a possibly lifesaving Device of one’s own!
Mr. Corwin L. Linkletter is no Snake Oil Salesman nor Crafty Schemer, he is a mere man of Engineeric bent, a philanthropist of ideas and suggestions looking to help like-minded Gentlemen and Ladies proceed.

The following is a list of items Mr. Linkletter procured to produce this patented item:

1x   Willson Model 2d Facial Mask
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
1x   Leather Strap no less than 18” x 1” (46cm x 3cm)
2x   Female-side Snaps
1x   1” (3cm) Brass Buckle
1x   2 ¾” x 2 ¾” (7cm x 7cm) Metal (Steel, Aluminum Copper or Brass) Mesh
4x   ½” x 1” (2cm x 3cm) Bolts
2x   3 Liter Plastic Soda Bottles
1x   10” x 8” (26cm x 21cm) 1” (3cm) thick Wood or ¼” (1cm) thick Metal Plate (Metal Highly Recommended)
2x   1” (3cm) wide Metal Strapping approximately 18” (46cm) in Length
2x   Leather Belt of any desired width
8x   2” x ½” (6cm x 2cm) Bolts with matching Nuts
1x   Bolt Matching interior threading of Faucet Knob
1x   Washer with interior diameter fitting over above Bolt
2x   Flexible Metal Tubing such as used for the Brakes of Horseless Carriages
1x   Faucet or Hose Valve Knob
1x   Mock Pressure Gauge
1x   14-16 Gauge Copper or Brass wire, of at least 12” (31cm) Length
Bonding Primer Paint Suitable for use on Plastic or Rubber
Black (Metallic if desired) Paint Suitable for use on Rubber or Plastic
Silver Metallic Paint Suitable for use on Plastic
Metallic Paint Suitable for use on Metal (If Brass or Copper mesh was not acquired)
Bonding Compound or Glue Suitable for use on Plastic

Once all items were procured, Mr. Linkletter then suggests the completion of the following steps in order:
1.   Disassemble the Willson Mask to its Component parts.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
2.   Using the existing thin metal mesh as a template, cut your more robust material into a matching circle. If needed paint new circle Brass or Copper coloured.
3.   Paint Gray Mask Piece first with bonding primer, then Metallic top coat. Add colors as needed to get desired effect. Paint Large Black Ring first with Bonding Primer, then Silver, Brass or Copper. Set both aside to dry.
4.   Once mask is dry, insert bolts matching the interior diameter of your flexible metal tubing into the Nose-vent holes on the Willson Mask so that the threaded ends extend out of the mask.
5.   Paint Metal Tubing Brass or Copper coloured. Once dry, attach to bolts extending from mask.
6.   Take thin leather strap and attach Female-side snap to each end. Cut strap at its midpoint and install buckle. Snap strap to mask and test fit to face, cut strap as needed to that it will buckle without excess.
7.   Take Brass or Copper wire. Start 6” from end and form tight spiral spring 1” (3cm) to 1 ½” (5cm) in length. Cut wire an additional 6” from end of spring. Form into shape similar to original steel nose bridge and trim and bend ends to match. Reattach new Spring-wire nose bridge to mask. Set aside.
8.   Using a hobby knife or focused light beam, cut Non-threaded ends of Soda bottles just before they begin to curve into base. Remove bases completely and discard.
9.   Insert Faucet-sized bolt into matching Washer, then insert into plastic side of one bottle. Cut hole in other bottle suitably sized to install gauge. Install gauge and hold in place with Glue. If desired for stability (quite recommended!), Fill bottles with dense foam, newspaper or packing peanuts. Glue bottles, cut end to cut end, together, forming a tank-like object with two threaded ends. Allow to set and cure.
10.   Once solidified, Mask off Gauge and Bolt and Spray Tank with Bonding Primer, then Metallic Silver paint, effecting the Illusion that the Tank is formed of Steel.
11.   After paint has dried, place tank on Plate, forming Metal strapping around Tank to create secure brackets. Drill holes in Strapping and Plate and secure Tank and Strapping to Plate with bolts (For a contrasting look, Paint Bolts Brass or Copper first!). Drill additional holes at corners of plate.
12.   Take both Belts, and cut in half. Drill or punch holes in them matching the holes you just placed in the corners of the Plate. Attach Belt halves to opposite side of Plate than Tank, with Buckle halves on bottom for best look and best weight retention.
13.   Finally, take the opposite ends of the metal Tubing attached to your mask and attach to threaded ends of Tank.

Congratulations! Your very own Ætheric Essence Breath Filtration Apparatus™ is complete!

The straps, designed to hold the Tank assembly to the wearer, may be worn vertically, much like suspenders, or interlaced across the chest for a more dashing appearance!

No more wheezing breath due to possibly (or purposefully) toxic fumes! No more gasping for air when Ætheric Exploration takes you to Realms without atmosphere!

Mr. Corwin L. Linkletter’s PATENTED Ætheric Essence Breath Filtration Apparatus™ will take you places you’ve never DREAMED of!


DISCLAIMER: Mr. Corwin L. Linkletter may very well be a Snake Oil Salesman as well as a Crafty Schemer. The Ætheric Essence Breath Filtration Apparatus™ is neither Trademarked nor Patented. All claims by the Designer and Engineer of this device, including the ability to filter toxic fumes, provide a breathable atmosphere where there might be none or the fortitude to take the user places they have never dreamed of are inherently false. Side Effects of the Ætheric Essence Breath Filtration Apparatus include: Feeling Faint, A Case of the Vapours, Passing Out, Wheezing Breath, Gasping for Air, Loose Bowels, Club foot, Blurred Vision, Hangnails, Sterility, Papercuts, Drunkenness, Lunacy, Inability to form Coherent Sentences, Mudkips, Rick Astley, Loss of Finances to Mr. Corwin L. Linkletter and Bad Odour. Æther Devices, Items and Inventions Incorporated takes no responsibility for an Engineer’s ill health, damage, disfiguration or death as a consequence of using this Device. In Fact, Mr. Corwin L. Linkletter simply paid this company ₤10 for the use of their name and we now sincerely regret it.

Planning to replace those filters with brass tiffany parts...and so on, and connect the mask with a hose to my backpack.
Fun to see someone with similar ideas Smiley

I have a rather old wilsons dust mask that i cleaned up and painted a bit, not extremely steampunk looking albeit. painted the mesh silver the main ring black and the vents silver as well, a simple switch to brass coloring and painting the ring flat black instead of gloss would take care of that tho! you can see it in this picture of myself giving an intimidating glare to the camera (dressed up as a psuedo post apocalyptic individual for halloween, combat boots a black trenchcoat and fingerless gloves and black pants, i think i was scaring people  Grin)
