Hi Grogs, no need to measure - good enough to know that it is "not really loud".

I'll toddle off to Jaycar, 500m, and get one before I do any more soldering.

Thanks,

Andrew

You know the fan noise you get from A/C when it is running at idle?
About that level.

Hi all. I toddled up to Jaycar and bought this. It certainly seems to do the trick - no smells I can detect. It is not whisper quite but perfectly OK (50 DbA at 1m).

Thanks to all who contributed,

Andrew

Just read the Operating Instructions Here . Very interesting indeed. Had to make sure that you could actually use the thing . Hope you followed all of the conditions listed

Probably should get one myself. Getting complaints from SHMBO about solder smells etc.

EXACTLY my problem too. Which is why I find myself not using it like I should.

Jaycar are a tad over priced, available on Aliexpress Here
Mine arrived today, works well; about 3 weeks delivery to NZ.

Cheers
Mike

I picked up mine the other day from my local Jaycar agent. Had to be ordered in.

It does take up valuable bench space as others have mentioned & needs to be positioned fairly well over the work area to extract most of the fumes.

It also sort of gets in the way a bit of my old "Maggy" lamp which I normally use as well when soldering.

It was good to have the fumes drawn away from me.

I haven't done any "smelly" work with it yet so I don't know this aspect of it goes.

Thanks Andrew for the post.
