Recently there was some discussion regarding venting.
This prompted me to address the situation in my studio.
This is my solution. There is a window in my work place.
A kitchen vent fan mounted in a 1/2 plywood panel placed between the
raised window and the sill provides the necessary air flow. A 24 inch
hood made from sheet metal with a 4 inch lip on either side is
mounted above the fan.
with a 24 inch distance from table top to hood it captures 100
percent of the fumes functioning as a dedicated soldering station.
Very inexpensive, whole thing cost less than $100 not including
table. I occasionally use a kiln for lost wax burnout. placing the
kiln on the table takes care of the fumes from that too.
hope this is of use’
