Metric PTFE tubing was used to produce a ventriloquist mask.

The problem:

How to ensure a nice smooth jaw action on the increasingly popular ventriloquist masks. 


PTFE tube was used to make a simple bearing within the mechanism to control the jaw action, as well as in the hand held controller.  

PTFE has a very lubricious surface and so, is super slippery, which enables the cables to move freely within the mechanism, ensuring a smooth and natural (as can be, when wearing a comedy mask!) movement action.

Maybe we'll see the mask in action on 'Live at the Apollo'!
