My New Fume Hood


I finally finished my fume hood!

The fan and duct supplies I got from a local surplus store (Ax-Man, for anyone in the area) for a remarkably good price. The most expensive part was the acrylic glass, which I hope lasts for a decent amount of time.

Yes, I am using part of a yogurt container as an adapter.

As below, so above.

Impressive Cheddite!

What size is that? About 4' x 4'?

I especially like the outside baffle. I had to settle for a spring loaded "flap" type. Like the old school kitchen type. I never thought of a baffle.




They tried to have me "put to sleep" so I came back to return the favor.
Zom.

Wow Cheddite. Looking great there.

Shouldn't the fan be at the end of your exhaust vent though rather than in the beginning? So in the case that somehow your tubing springs a leak, you aren't pushing the fume back into the room. If your fan is at the end, even with a minor leak the bad fumes should still go in the right direction.

Yeah, I thought about putting the fan at the end, but there would have been problems with hooking the ducting up to the fan intake. The ducting goes much more easily on the outlet.

The size is 3 feet high by 4 feet wide by 2 feet deep.
