Exhaust

I would like to know what y’all are using for an exhaust system in your bait making shops. I mostly make plastic and lead heads. Thanks in advance. Just want to toss it around and see what’s the most economical and safe to.

I have one of those big industrial fans, like the ones in a bathroom but much bigger. Its housed in a plywood contraption similar to  a kitchen oven hood. It is above my main work area where I air brush/pour lead, fed outside with aluminum duct. Its very similar to setting  up a bathroom fan.

I built a three-sided box plus a top out of thin plywood that sits on top of a work bench. Installed a bathroom exhaust fan in the top. I ran the vent hose to a piece of wood that is sized so I can just open a window and place the wood in the opening. It just vents outside then. I'm not sure how thoroughly it works. My microwave for plastic melting fits inside and I can also put my lead pot inside.
