Default Garage ventalation

I'm new to lampworking and have setup a small work table in my garage do I need ventalation? I have a door in that back of the garage to the left and a window on the right and I keep the garage door open, also I have a floor fan kinda behind me, is this enough ventalation?

No, it isn't enough especially if you are using a HH torch. To get a good mental image just see yourself sitting behind a car with it running and your trying to do lampwork there. Capture of fumes and exhausting them completely out of the studio is what you need.

Here a link to a system that is fairly do it yourself and on the cheap for a system.
