Soldering Fume Extractor

This is a soldering fume extractor for when I’m soldering at my desk. I should have made one of these years ago but always too busy. The extractor uses an older computer fan to suck up the soldering fumes and put the fumes through an active carbon filter.
My desk is always got things on it and is messy, this was a problem until I decided to use aluminum rods to hold the fan over the work area. The rods are held with 3D printed joins to hold and angle the aluminum to where the extractor is needed.
Around the fan also houses a PCB with 4 LEDs, this gives more like to the work area. both the fan and the light is powered by the ATX power supply.
