I recently bought this fume extractor from Aliexpress:https://www.aliexpress.com/item/33041102986.html?spm=a2g0s.90423126.96.36.199a414c4d8QEsj5 in order to avoid paying for the Glowforge air filter that would cost me more than double plus shipping it to Canada from the US was really expensive.
The first time I used it I thought it worked. I used it at the highest setting with wood and acrylic 1/8 inch and there was no fume in the room but today I tried using it again and although we still have no fumes in the room, the wood smell was much more visible and the Glowforge stopped a couple times on a 8 minute run (cut only) to cool down. I have turned the fan setting from the Glowforge itself off and I wanted to check what everyone else thinks. Is this model too small for the GF?
Do you have any suggestions as to air filters/fume extractors that could work with the glowforge and they are cheaper than the ones GF is offering?
