I've had a plan to replace one of the small glass panes in the workshop window to permanently fit the laser vents. We have an external vent, and some tubing, but I haven't cut a replacement window pane yet.

I found a guide for designing the extraction system: http://www.engraversjournal.com/article.php/2780/index.html

As this will no longer be happening here (a new issue can be opened if it's still needed in the new building) I'm closing this issue.

Reopening this as we'll be following the same plan, with a 6" vent fitted in a board of weatherproofed, painted marine ply in place of one of the window panes in the window in the wood workshop.

From #692:

@magman2112 has measured the panel - 71cm width x 76cm height

Someone should contact glazing company for price of a UPVC (double-glazed thickness) panel that we can cut a 6" hole in for the vent.

Anyone want to propose what sort of vent we should fit, and how we should plumb both laser extraction tubes to it. Ideally with part numbers/sources.

I work next to a double glazing factory, so can ask tomorrow or Thursday

I haven't done this yet, but having thought about it, I don't think it would look acceptable from the outside of the building. Would it be possible to cut a hole in the glass and fit a collar of some type instead?

I was talking to Jason this morning, and he did suggest making a hole in the end wall instead.

You won't be able to cut a hole in the windows as they are toughened glass so it would shatter & they are double glazed which is likely to be filled with low pressure argon.
The choices are either a bespoke window or cut a hole in the wall which I imagine would be much cheaper & allow the fitting of a non-return system

Agree, think that the wall cut is best option rather than hacking a sealed window unit; that's what we did with Gerald originally back at STATIC as we got a complaint from other buildings. We also might want to look into some kind of 'chimney' or non-blocking directional vent on the outside; maybe speak with Jason and building about venting regs for that area; we got away with out the window in gostins but we were 6 stories up, but long term as area gets more traffic we may want to make sure it goes up and away and not just on the street... And non-return system wise depending on position of vent out in the room and length to exit outside, we may need an additional inline fan.
