How To: Build a fume extractor for soldering in an Altoids tin

Build a fume extractor for soldering in an Altoids tin

Using the instructions on the MAKE blog (04/2008) We made this portable fume extractor for soldering.  Works great at close proximity (2 inches).  Note: We didn't screw down the voltage regulator, just stuffed it in the side. This will keep the fumes from seeping into your lungs by trapping them with an Altoids tin.

I couldnt get the voltage regulator, if i put a a LED in the circuit will that manage the extra 6v?
