I'm using my pizza oven to toss masks for nurses


After consulting with a couple of his engineer friends and procuring large sheets of acrylic, Syrkin-Nikolau and his staff have started making face shields for healthcare workers. The industrial pizza oven heats the acrylic up until it's soft enough to bend into the right shape, and then it is attached to a foam strip and straps.

"It really is a very quick process," he says. "Whether it's slinging slices or slinging acrylic, it's similar principles."
