    DIY Welding Fume Extractor

    Here is my DIY Welding fume extractor that I knocked together. It's only a prototype for now, hence the cardboard, but it is functional, and will be quite useful as I start the finish welding on the All Terrain Track Chair (ATTC).


    For those interested in the ATTC project, it is a custom built tracked vehicle specifically for a client who is confined to a wheelchair and has quite limited physical limitations. This vehicle will provide him mobility to see his large undeveloped property.

    Very cool

    Any way to add a metal screen spark arrester to keep the filter/box from catching fire?

    Good idea. I may implement that on the next version of this, maybe right at the inlet on the end of the pipe. For now, I have ~15' of pipe on it, and the suction power is fairly low, so the risk of a spark making it all the way back to the cardboard is quite low. However, I am keeping an eye on it as I do welding.

    Thanks for watching!
