And this is my first instructable so I hope you enjoy! Feel free to comment and i would like to hear from you if you built one.
Step 1: Materials
A cardboard box that you can has plenty of space so that you have enough room for soldering
A layer of sheet metal that will be your platform and it will keep the table safe
A 120v fan that is bigger than 6 inches in diameter or a 12v fan of similar size
A small area of space on a table that wont burn
And the basic soldering tools
Screws with washers and nuts of the same diameter
A knife capable of cutting cardboard easily
A power strip with an on/off switch and at least 3 outlets
(optional) Some alligator clips and solid copper wire
(optional) An air filter that could collect the fumes
(optional) A lightbulb and power source for it
Step 2: Cutting the Box
In this step, you will cut a hole in your box with your knife/blade. Make sure that the hole fits your fan so that half of your fan can fit in this hole. Be sure to leave space for the mounting holes of your fan so that you can screw your fan on. Also, cut out the side opposite to your fan hole and the side that will be the bottom of your soldering station.
Step 3: Make the Mounting Holes
In this step you will make holes that would allow your fan to be screwed onto the box.
