does the thickness of the carbon filter matter? I am looking for some an i only see some 1/4 inch thick.

Just a little smaller than mine lol. Those fans can get a bit noisy near your head. May I suggest a LM317 variable regulator, or a desktop fan controller to give you some fan speed options?

This looks like a great and simple extractor! I need to make one of these to try to save a few of my remaining brain cells...

Hey, just a bit of written instruction--or even a couple of steps with photos--would be an excellent addition to accompany your videos. Just a thought! :)
