OK, I received and installed? the Wynn 35BA222NANO cartridge filter for my Harbor Freight 2HP Dust Collector.

I see no conceivable way, using the parts supplied to hold the filter cartridge to the HF Dust Collector body. The instructions provided by Wynn make no sense and even if they were doable wouldn't provide any mounting capability.

Has anyone here installed the Wynn cartridge filter on the current production of HF DC? Does the filter just stay in place due to gravity?

The "5 micron" dust bag included with the DC passes a lot of dust, much larger than 5 micron, and I needed to get rid of it. Even if CFM decreases, I hope the higher filter efficiency will help get rid of dust in the air in my shop.

Woodnthings:

Thanks for posting that. Yes, I have a nice new system, but the principles are the same. I can add more HP (2hp) and a larger impeller (14.5"), but I still have to make sure there are no leaks, that airflow friction is as small a possible and that my canister filter is seasoned...

Here is a quote from a review that I will be posting soon.

"Particle Count: I have a Dylos particle counter in my shop. If I am in the shop, the Dylos is on. The Dylos measures the number of large particles (2.5 microns and larger) and small particles (0.5 to 2.5 microns) in the air. I have owned it for about three (3) years. I have noticed that the small particle count is quite a bit higher with the Grizzly G0440 than it was with the Jet DC-1100. At first, I was a little disappointed, but then I remembered that I had been using the Jet for four (4) years prior to getting the Dylos. The Jet canister had four (4) years to "season". A filter canister actually will become a better filter with age ("seasoning"), because the small fine particles will fill in the filter canister holes and keep them from being blown into the air outside the filter. I have emptied the sawdust collection container three (3) times since I have owned it. With each emptying of the container, I find that the particle count goes down.

Now, a little more information that I found out by accident the other day. I wasn't paying attention to my collection bin, while I was surface planing and I let the bin overfill. The plastic bag at the bottom of the filter was about 2/3 full, before I realized what I had done. After some "negative talk" to myself, I spent the next 30 minutes cleaning up. I had to clean the filter a couple of times and empty the bag twice. Here is the interesting part: the rest of the day, the Dylos readings were much lower than before the overflow!

So, a good way to season your filter is to let your collection bin overflow."

Here is a great youtube video on creating a "convertor" between your filter and DC.

Did yours come with little turn-buckles? Mine did, so I just removed the lower bag, and used the turn-buckles to hook the inside edges of the canister to the cone part of the DC.

From the top or from the bottom of the cone part of the DC?

The top outside rim of the cone thing won't engage the turnbuckle hooks.

This sounds like I need to reach up through the bottom of the cone to catch the bottom of the filter??

Thanks for the help so far...

Yes, exactly. The turn-buckles hook on the bottom of the cone, and the bottom edge of the canister. You can see two of them here. This is what it looks like through the inlet pipe on mine. I tighten them through there because the Thien baffle is above the bag.

OK, I finally got done with my projects long enough to install those clips. Once I understood where and how to install them it was a cinch.

Thanks to sanchez and WesTex for showing me how to do it.

Has anyone used a Grizzly T23129 canister on a HF DC. I like the Grizzly because it has flapper vanes to knock the dust off the filter pleats. I cannot find a diameter dimension for the Grizzly canister, so can't even guess if it would fit.

Thanks
You can build an adapter ring that will make it work. If you or any of your friends is handy with composite materials it is a doable task. I made mine in a day. I went from a Delta bag to the Grizzly. I also modified the suction side and use an Onieda Tornado. That one also required a custom adapter. After a month of searching, I though (I do this work everyday so WHY am I not making my own adapter!!!).

There are spring clips that go from the inside of the Winn filter to the inside of the harbor freight housing.

The Grizzly cannister filters:
https://www.grizzly.com/products/Gri...BoCB28QAvD_BwE


I made my own "adaptor" for the cardboard 30 gal drums I used to replace the plastic catch bags. The Dust Dog filters fit onto the Jet separator without modification, but the Wynn filters may not fit directly. Maybe this approach would work?






I used two feeding pans from TSC and cut the rims off, inverted one and stacked them together, then taped them together and lined the inside grooves with 1/2" grey foam insulation tape for the seal. I used bungee cords to hold down the cannisters to the mobile base.






The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)
