Default Redneck Smoke Machine

I'm pretty sure I have some exhaust leaks, so I thought I'd make a smoke machine like you may have seen on YouTube to find the leaks. Instead of connecting the paint can with charcoal in it to a full sized air compressor, I used an air mattress pump instead (only 1 psi.). The only thing in my set up is that the inverter I was using wasn't strong enough to power the fan... I'll have to find somewhere I can actually plug in. My apartment sucks because there are no outdoor outlets to be found.

Oh, by the way... the 1/2 inch hose for this smoke machine is actually a little girl's plastic pink jump rope. No girls were harmed in the making of this project.
