Solderx1 …a very cheap fume extractor for solder fumes to avoid breathing this nasty stuff in all the time. Not only is it a nice ‘make’ hack, it also is a perfect tool for many more ‘make’ adventures. What you need: a slot type cooling fan, a vacuum cleaner hose, some zip ties, hot glue, cardboard or flexible plastic sheet and a power supply. Link.
