Bad fit in older vacuums

I have several older Craftsman shop vacuums. These units have filters with separate cover plates that hold the filter in place. They unit has a threaded stud and a hold down nut that screws onto the plate and holds the filter in place. The hold down nut has a sort of flat lever handle attached on one side used to turn the nut. The new replacement filter has an integrated cover plate with a raised center ring presumably for newer vacuum designes. When I tried to screw on the threaded nut as shown in the instructions (with the lever up and away from the filter), I could not get it to catch the threads. I could only get it to catch if I flipped the nut over (with the lever side down towards the filer). This caused the integrated ring in the filter cover to distort and crush a bit. The fit was very poor. I did verify that the filter number is correct for my vacuums. The old design worked very well. If you have an older unit with the lever type of nut you should try to get a replacement filter with the original design using a separate cover plate.

Needed a new one after a year of blowing dirt outside and reusing original one. Used this to clean up a lot of dust. Had $12 towards the purchase, comes with plastic nut!

good for quick general clean up. don't expect it to last for too long

TWO stars for TOO expensive!! You must replace regularly if you want full suction. banging or blowing it out does not restore full vacuum. I buy several when i find them for less than full retail so I can change them whenever I feel like it. BECAUSE they are too darn expensive to pay so much for a temporary filter.

Fits my 12 Gal Craftsman shop-vac

|

This filter has a bonded plastic end piece as pictured on one end where the filter holding screw gets placed. The end gasket that mates the vac housing is nice and snug and the filter element is high quality. My previous filters were just cylindrical and used a separate plastic end piece with a screw end. Next time I might try the 3rd party filter of just the cylinder shape which uses the reusable plastic end piece and is about $5 cheaper. I'm amazed how these Craftsman shop vacs seems to last forever.
