Solder Fume Extractor

When I fitted my desk with led lighting I had to remove my solder fume extractor. Therefore I build a new one now.


The new one is build from pvc pipe (which is build from pvc L-profiles). The fumes are sucked away and brought to a filter. (The old extractor only sucked the fumes away so they didn’t come in my face).


I have put 5 50mm fans right in front of the solder place:


Video of the test:


The smoke is transferred trough the pipe to 2 120mm fans, on these fans I’m going to mount an filter, but I don’t have that yet.
