The purpose of this instructable is to build a fume extractor that you could solder in. This station allows you to solder in it safely while keeping toxic fumes out of your face. This is only meant to protect you, but you should still be soldering in a well ventilated area and be sure to take the safety precautions that you would soldering. Do not use this inside unless you are using a hepa filter.
