Default homemade exhaust hood

I brew in my cellar with an electric rig and didnt want to spend a fortune on a hood so I came up with this

I used a stainless gas grill cover and mounted the inline fan to it
it is hard wired to the swithch you see
I removed one of the panes of my cellar window and replaced with plexiglass and drilled out hole for dryer vent
hood is mounted with heavy duty adjustable shelfing from HD Just bolted
the arms to the cover and anchored wall brackets to the concrete
works great and was relativly cheap looks pretty good to if I must say so myself

Nice... Wish I had a spare grill cover to base mine off of, now... What's the CFM rating on the fan you used?

Yeah, you suck... LOL... I might need to find one near me. Or see if I can locate something like a 55 gallon drum that I could cut up and use. It would need to be clean, so no oil and stuff in it... Will have to see if a HDPE drum would work. Hmmmm, those are pretty cheap (I believe) and could handle the steam temps. Would make for a wider hood section too.

Cool, just sent him an email before you posted his location. Will see what he comes back with, and when.
