i had thought of it, but never got much further then that thought .
the shell is the right shape and size, but i think the fan is not big enough, and the air flo is in the wrong direction .(range hoods suck, flo hoods blow) .
would probably be cheaper to build from scratch . other then that, good idea for a model .  :smile:
you have some good ideas bro  :cool:
keep thunkin  :grin:

Well i just took mine apart(and amazingly managed to put it back together with no left over parts :smile: )and it looks like it would make a good prefilter.It has a pretty strong flow so im thinking flip it over and add the hepa to the out outlet on the hood or take out the exisiting filters using the thicker first and a larger hepa last then just
flip the fan over to reverse flow.Looking inside mine this would be easy.

After working in a glove box a bit i think flow hoods have a lot going for them lol.I'm a big git that needs space :smile: so ill give it a go and let ya know my results :smile:

a consideration: HEPA filters have a relatively high static pressure and you may not get very much airflow out of this. it is possible you could replace the blower tho.
