Happy to release this book I made with my father. It’s for pregnant women and osteopathic care. It’s in French, made with free software (web-to-print). Printed locally (FR) and self-published.

Finished the soldering fume extractor. Made a wooden box that holds the ikea förnuftig particle and activated carbon filters and houses the six 120mm fans.

Works nicely, catches all the smoke when you solder in front of it and is not too loud at all. Filters and fans are cheap, so this gets me very good performance for far less money than any commercially available fume extractor.
