Hi there folks,
I am looking for some advice on fume extraction now that I have upgraded my 1000 x 1000 X-Carve with the J Tech 2.8W laser. I have this mounted to the side of the spindle.
As I cannot afford the commercial fume extraction systems, and filter maintenance/replacement, I think that my best option is to try to vent outside. This would satisfy a low cost alternative and ensure fumes are safely dispersed outside my garage.
I have seen some videos with lasers in operation without fume extraction (scary thought) and with fume extraction (but video is focusing on the process naturally).
Can anyone with a fume extraction setup share some photos and/or details how your system is set up?
This would certainly be useful for me but also for other laser users to show-off their systems and share their experiences.
Thanks for any advice and look forward to seeing lots of fun set up photos.
