    I like the design but I question the filter medium. Does the foam filter or cool the air to take the reduce the health risks? Do you still smell the resin fumes on the exhaust side? I have heard of more than a few people developing throat cancer that circuit boards from the fumes. It always makes me cautious even though my exposure to the fumes would be a lot less.

    Any system that keeps the smoke out of your face is useful, but it would be better to know the carcinogens were taken out of the air.

    Thanks jere,
    The main goal for this fume extractor is to avoid breathing fumes directly i have a well ventilated working area so i'm not worried about smells, but this sponge is trapping all the smoke i can see it getting a little darker after i used it a lot, the smells are reduced considerably.
    With this design you can change the filter to anything you want, if you are interested in making one i advise you to use active carbon filter it taps the smoke and neutralize the smells.
    Thanks!

    Congratulations on the win, AMG warkshop!

    This is only the third month we've done Best Documented Build, but I'm glad we started the tradition. You're in good company; previous winners are mr95gst for his 18" Bandsaw, and rgsparber for his X-Y Backlash Reduction Method.
