UPDATE: I started the work on the filters tonight. I still need some activated carbon to test them which should come in around Thurdsay or so. Filters in progress here:
DISCLAIMER: I know I go a bit crazy with the screws. However my son says it looks like a robot with them so oh well! If you build your own you will not need this many 🙂
This past weekend I decided that I would attempt a carbon filtering fume extractor stack (at least what I called it). Basically the fumes from the smoke of many different materials is pretty bad. The idea was to make it so the carbon would filter the smoke and output clean air (ok well a best hopes less smelly air). Heres some photos of the build. I will be putting the whole thing on thingiverse soon. I do not like how the filters are working out. They were the carbon filters you can cut to size from home depot. I have a different idea how to make your own carbon filters from masonite, screen door material and the laser cutter. I will post an update here soon. Check back to this page to get updates on this project. I have a lot more pictures on my flickr stream.
