Re: [Electronics_101] Solder smoke extraction
- a interesting push/pull system.
I'm not sure how the push bar can be implemented but it is very interesting
to read without push it is only half effective.
The airflow is quite high, but then it is a fairly big setup.
I know for sure that i get a sore throat when soldering, which made
me think about it. Wasn't the case in the past but reading about
sensitising makes it more plausible. I don't like that one bit.
I believe some experimenting will be needed to determine which method
(or combination) of fume catching is best.

You can find a small greasy spot on the roof where it ends, but hey, after
25 years or so....
I remember at my grandmother's house it's the same, there is no greasy
forever i guess... (though she used to keep a mesh over the outlet to keep
the mice from coming down ;-)).
As said, many attics here are practically considered outside, just with a
There are boxes up there which get a layer of dust over the years, but it
isn't a slimy layer.
I reckon most of it is blown in by the wind, or created by the chimney
sweeper (there is a door
in the chimney up there). So you see, no problems, no slime.
