Impressed by the price tags on soldering fume extractors and tired by inhaling crap I decided to build something of this kind by myself. Result you may see on photos below. It is is made of:
- 3 mm polystyrene sheet;
- two 80 mm coolers from dead ATX PSUs;
- aquarium activated carbon filter sheets from eBay;
- rocker switch;
- barrel jack receptacle;
- some wires and foam insulation strips.
Polystyrene was bent without heating, only two grooves were carved to help bending. All parts were hot-glued, bottom lid mounted on double-sided adhesive tape.
Device is powered from 12V/1A wall PSU.
Total construction time – less than 2 hours.
