    :hi5: You are graduating to an elite group. I'd get a tube of silicone for $3 and go around the inside and the fan at the top

    awesome! Some people never use a prefilter. Wouldn't hurt to run it a few minutes without one, get a sense of your flow. I'm as anxious as you are to see how that fan does

    my guess is a lot faster than 100 fpm. Maybe faster than 150. I'm relieved to see the $109 fan is going to work

    I would think you should flame test it at the distance you intend to do most of your work. :shrug2:

    I work pretty close to the filter, somewhere between 1" to 9"

    just test it at 6" and then enjoy working with your new hood. I'm excited for you :)

    sorry if I don't have any hard numbers for you but in all honesty you've got some good leeway on your side and I think you've got it going on.

    Don't pour 1,000 plates yet but I'd suggest moving forward and enjoying. I know how you feel ATM.



    pour plates ;)
