  • WD1250 and fine dirt bag

    So - I went to clean the ash out of the collection bin yesterday, and lo and behold, I was pissed to find that the bargain 29.99 WD1250 shop vac does NOT appear to accept any filter bags at the inlet hose. Sucks.

    Ended up jerry rigging something by cramming another piece of hose between through the inlet and feeding it directly into a filter bag, but it wasn't exactly the most convenient (and clean) solution.

    The RIDGID support person said that it wasn't designed to fit filter bags, and to simply use the "fine dust" filter, but I'm guessing doing that will simply blow ash all over the place.

    Does anyone know of any adapter for RIDGID or Craftsmen (if similar) that would fit the WD1250 and accept a fine filter bag?
