Surely you all have a box of old equipment fans? If I need to suck or blow fumes away I just set one of these on the bench beside me. Size depending on the need.

4 Fans. Nice.
I have 4 of these delta FFB1212EHE lying about ... 190CFM each
Well? Can't really talk with these "ON"  ^-^
I am planning on using them for a fume extractor  :-DD
How about this then?

There is no fume extractor in my lab.

There is one hell of a fume generator however.

I sometimes set up to solder under the kitchen stove fume hood.

I use this Edsyn on the bench.  Found it used for $15.  It works well.  Draws the fumes away from the work sitting 6 - 8 inches away. I has a nice stand that allows it to be angled. I don't even use the filters that came with it. My shop is big enough so I just have it draw the fumes away into the room.  I use it when soldering something in a circuit board stand.



If you just want to keep the fumes away without spending a lot money get an old PC power supply.  I found an old pair of test leads and cut off the probes and attached those to the 12 VDC fan.  Plug it into a bench supply and you can control the airflow.  I use it when soldering something flat on the bench. Just set it next to the work.

You guys gave me the inspiration to build one now because I have to repair a T.V with about 160 different capacitors that need to be replaced  and several other projects laying around.. I am going to use a delta style fan the I could not use on my other computer build ,but it has a new home as a fume extractor and i think it won't have any problems with pushing or pulling air through a carbon filter  but need to keep grills on it  because someone might loose a finger and the spec will be down below... My only problem is finding or build a 4- pwm  and some way to mount and blow away????

Just be careful that it draws 3amps, about roughly the same as a FFB1212EHE
How about static pressure? I bet like the FFB1212EHE roughly the same but that one is tuned for maximum air pressure but you can should mount the filter behind simply because it has the static pressure and fantastic CFM to boot albeit quite loud ... well you haven't heard of a loud fan until you heard of the THA1248BE, it's 76dB!!! It's a jet plane that one
