10 min DIY Solder Fume Extractor Build

A quick and dirty 10 minute build of a solder fume extractor. This thing will outcompete all similar box-style fume extractors in terms of suction, sound and general filter extraction. The secret is the Noctua 140mm Industrial fan and the use of real 10mm thick Hakko filters. You can try to get the generic all purpose rolls if you want to save money but do your research and make sure they have some thickness to them. Otherwise, you’re just using a fan to move the flux fumes elsewhere in the room.
