Very nice machine Lanse. As for the machine I use a fumagator at work all the time. Kicks butt for removing those deadly and toxic fumes away from a person. Mig/stick/tig doesn't matter nor affect the shielding gas AT ALL. It might if you put the hood three inches away from your work. But smoke RISES. I ussually have the hood about 12-15 inches away. Thats plenty of room for the welder.They work great. Keep up the good work and advice.

Actually it is...

If you watch the video, you'll see I run .030 solid wire with 80/20 mixed gas, and suffered no lack of shielding from the fume hood...

I just watched the video Lanse. I still believe you will run into problems with it depending on how it is positioned. In the video you have the piece being welded between the vaccuum and the mig gun, acting as a wind break. While that does help you in this situation, projects may not always allow this. Furthermore, when its a warm summer and you have the garage doors opened to catch a little breeze you will likely find that if the breeze doesn't leave you with porosity, the vaccuum (or the combination of the two) will. I could be completely wrong, however I still feel the usefulness of this product is only found in ideal situations. Keep up the good videos!!

You don't put it 6" from where you're welding. If you look at the opening, it is designed to spread out the suction so it isn't really strong in a narrow area.
