  • shop vac filter

    several years ago i had a cloth filter sleeve, now i am looking for a sleeve for the tall filter in my ridgid vac, but i can only find them for the short filters, i was even going to use a paper filter but i cant find one big enough any ideas

    Maybe make one out of cheesecloth. I doubt if it will filter out much of the real small stuff but should work for the bigger chips.

      I think the shop vac brand has paper filters and foam filters, (do not know if they will fit over ridgid filters tho, I have one vac that we use the foam filters on, tey can work in wet dray and be washed out and reusable, ACE hard ware sells the shop Vac brand in our community.

        You can buy the foam filter sheets (universal fit) made for room air-conditioners (window units), trim for height, wrap them around the pleated paper filter and secure with two wide rubber bands.

          i picked up the foam sheets, 2 in a pack for 4.95 wrapped one around the paper filter and it looks like it should work fine, i will let you know as soon as i try it, thanks for the suggestion

            the filter sheet that i wrapped around the filter is working great, the paper filter does not clog up nearly as much with out it

              I don't think this is what you are looking for but McMaster-Carr lists a bunch
              of filters for various brand shop-vacs including Ridgid and Craftsman.
