Re: Draw latched a more elegant solution in adapting Wynn filter to Grizzly Dust Collector

I also installed the Wynn 35 Series filter on my Harbor Freight dust collector. Instead of cutting rings I simply placed 3/4" thick rubber weatherstripping on the botton of the filter. To hold the filter down I drilled 4 holes (3/8") equally spaced around the upper rim and about 1/2 inch below the rolled edge. Cut a circle about 4 inches larger than the diameter of the filter from fiber board and drilled 4 holes in it corresponding to the holes in the collector rim. Took four lengths of 1/4" all thread rod, bent one end and inserted each in the collector rim and the other end through the holes in the fiber board which was placed on top of the filter. Put washers and nuts on top and tightened them down.
