I’ll chime in here too; I just (like yesterday) fit the NANO to my Powermatic 1300, replacing the OEM ‘2 micron’ canister. I was just getting too much fine dust all over the shop. I also added a trashcan separator in front of the DC as well as upgraded the filters in my air filtration unit.

Wynn was great to deal with, I recommend them.

I think the big question is what are you trying to achieve? A performance bump in your DC, or maximizing collection of small dust particles. Both are noble goals, so no judgement implied.

Any of Wynn’s cartridges should give you an improvement over a system with a bag, better flow due to more area. If you want to improve small particle control, the NANO is the way to go, as it has the highest MERV rating. I also looked at the replacement filter from Oneida, which had a 16 MERV, but much less area, and more expensive.

In my opinion the spun bond doesn’t make sense; more expensive than the 80/20 with way less area and marginally better filtration for a substantially higher price (but is washable.)

So, I’d say 80/20 for a performance kick at a good cost, NANO for best small particle control.
