PSI AC1000-PF2 fitment into a Grizzly G0572 Air Filter... So far so good...

As my regular readers know, I needed to replace the original primary filter on my Grizzly G0572 Hanging Air Filter with remote. Due to me not wanting to go to the poor house on disposable filters, I opted to search out a permanent / washable filter solution. The closest thing I could find is the Penn State PSI AC1000-PF2 replacement primary filter.

The filter is designed for the Penn State AC1000 air filter, and has a stated dimension of 19×14.5×1. Of those dimensions, only one was true (14.5) the rest were off. The width was actually 18.5, not 19, and the thickness was 5/8” not 1”...

A test fit showed that it fit reasonably well into my Grizzly, but had a little bit of slop. In order to prevent any blowby, some foam rubber self adhesive weather stripping was applied to the back side of the filter frame. Once installed the seal is good and tight.

All in all, for the $16.00 on sale, and $7.50 shipping, I am glad I purchased 2 of these at the same time. One to keep in the air filter assembly, the other to clean and be ready to swap in…

Ta dah. I know the suspense was agonizing…......would it fit or not…......would I have to send it back….....etc….........(-: Glad it worked out. Since I roll my own aquarium filters, you know I applaud your efforts….........(-:

Making the old Delta Contractor’s sawdust-tight, and with the proper air flow for sawdust collection, is my current project. Let me tell you this is nit-picky….....it is not easy to hem in that dangling motor, belt and moving saw guard. The latter may be temporary, but I am trying to keep it going until I am ready to replace it.

Jim, there is a guy on Phil Thien’s forum that does custom metal fabrication that is outstanding. His name is Chuck Lenz. He might be able to point you in the right direction for closing up that Delta contractor saw… His stuff used to be sold by Penn State. Really nice designed stuff…

Thanks. I doubt I’ll need anything metal, the main metal box will be easy to close, just a bunch of details. Closing in the motor will be just hanging a light wooden box off of a wooden frame I have attached to the main metal box, so I am well on my way. I may build a Thien separator this weekend also, I’ll send you a message if I need any help. But there seems to be plenty of documentation around.

Have about 7 people for Thanksgiving, not too bad, I cook the turkey on the grill, essentially using it as a convection oven…...would you believe that I have cooked all the turkeys in my family since 1970, and all of them on the grill…...used to be charcoal…......now I am lazy, so use gas….....but I have done them that way at 50 deg below zero in Fairbanks! I remember I would have the charcoal grill in the garage, light the coals, and as soon as they started going….....open the garage door and push the grill outside. There is no way to do anything requiring finesse such as piling up briquets, etc at 50 deg below. I put a pan under the turkey, put the turkey on a small grill in the pan, and initially cover the turkey with foil, taking it off later for browning. Actually, it is kind of fun.

I am also going to make the pie crust for the pumpkin pie….........don’t ask me how that happened…..............

Have a good Thanksgiving….........don’t know about you, but I have had a good year, and a lot to be thankful for…..

So far its been good. Just LOML, my brother in law, my father in law, and myself this year. Nice and quiet… Not the smoothest year ever but certainly I have a lot to be thankful for…. And I refuse to let a setback or two throw me off course….
