    Great work Madeit. I would like to suggest an extraction hood to maximize coverage.

    Thanks for your email. when I tried the extraction fan when welding and it worked fine. I thought about a hood, but as the air-con duct is self supporting I decided not to fit even a light hood as I did not want to add a support to the duct.

    Thank you for your comment

    Very nice. One wouldn't think that it's a consumer fan in that enclosure.
