Hello! I live in the dorms at my university and I'm sick of waiting ages for my PCBs to be made and shipped so I'm itching to start making my own. But there are a few issues with doing this in a dorm, so I need to know a few things
Note: my university is in northern Wisconsin and right now, everything is covered in snow and ice so I can't really blow fumes out my window.
1) Does using skillet reflow create any fumes? This is how I would be soldering my components b/c using a wand makes fumes.
2) Does drilling holes in a PCB with a Dremel make any fumes?
3) Does using etching solution or ironing the traces onto the board create any fumes?
As you can tell I'm worried about fumes. I can't let my fire alarm go off. I could unplug it, I'm just worried that the one outside my room might go off.
