Soldering Station (Fume Extractor + Spool Holder)

I needed a solder fume extractor and a solder spool holder, so I decided to combine to combine the two and attach it to a desk mounted articulating arm.

This station will mount to anything with a 1/4"-20 nut and bolt. Also, check out my FreeCAD tutorial where I show how to make this model:
Part 1:
Part 2:

I have included the FreeCAD Files for anyone to modify as well as a smaller version and a full sized version.

Materials and methods

You will need the following things to make this station:
-120mm fan (get one that's rated at least 40+ CFM) w/ 4 fan screws
-Small toggle switch
-12 volt power source
-Carbon filter: http://amzn.to/2fZmyQW
-1/2" Wooden Dowel Rod
1/4"-20 Nut

Hi, I'm new to 3D printing, but I need a fume extractor. Do you have the same design for a 140mm fan. It's very quiet and 90cfm. I don't know how to change the design to a 140 fan.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
