Hi, Just wanting some as to what people are using to
ventilate their soldering stations. Am about to set up a system
and need more info.

Thanks!

Hi Karen, I use a small fan (just over my shoulder) to blow the
fumes away. I recently installed a CO detector . . . and I keep a
window open slightly while working. I’m considering, some sort of
overhead exhaust system (like Jen-aire) but that will have to
wait until I pay for the recently ordered supplies . . . ; )

I recently installed a kitchen range hood in my soldering area.
I borrowed the basic idea of a dust collector – i.e., to extract
to the back, not up past my face. The range hood is installed in
such a way that what would normally to the top of the hood is flat
against the wall, which means that the fan and its filter are
facing me. Cut a hole in the wall through to the outside,
inserted a tin sleeve with a wind flap (standard hardware store
product), aligned this hole and the range hood vent hole. I smell
virtually nothing so think this is arrangement is pretty darn
effefctive.

Clear as mud?

The worst thing about my rangehood for ventilation is the noise. I
would recommend sampling a few for comparison before the big
purchase… or making sure you can return it if it isn’t
acceptable. Darryl MacLeod of Nova Scotia
