Default Funnel Ventilation System Inquiry

Redoing my venting in my lampwork studio and would like to make a funnel ventilation system. I've been sifting through old threads but many of the links are broken and some of the information is outdated so I thought I would open it up again. If there is some good schematics and/or advice that is current regarding how to put in a funnel ventilation system, I would appreciate being pointed in the right direction. I've seen Whit Slemmon's excellent version, however I don't have enough room to put a fan on the outside + I live in temperatures that get to -40 in the winter. Ideally, I would like to keep the fan inside so any suggestions for a powerful, compact and quiet fan would be appreciated. Would love to see current photos of funnel ventilation systems that you're happy with too.

Thanks,
Carrie

One source for good squirrel cage ventilation fans is a local heating and ventilation installers.

They often have to pay to have the old furnaces that they take out of places disposed of when they are installing new furnaces and often the fans and motors work just fine.
So you may be able to get the motor and mounting it came with for just asking.
