Fein Turbo II Filter
I have a Fein Turbo II vac, model 9-20-25, about 5 years old. It has a large cone-shaped filter that drops onto the lower housing before clamping the motor housing on top. I've seen it referred to as a "cloth filter"; it's like a very heavy felt material.
Does anyone know if this filter is washable? I've used it for many years without a paper bag, and have only banged the cloth filter around to get off any loose crud. I use it as a dust collector on a few of my machines, and I'm about to add a Dust Deputy. Seemed like a good time to make sure the vac is working as well as it can. New cloth filter is $80+, so I'd like to clean & continue to use this one if I can.
