After paying $178.00 each + freight, for these air filters from Oneida, I am trying to locate another seller to save a few $$$. Anyone out there know who actually manufactures these 13” x 13” filters? Oneida, of course, won’t say. I don’t blame them, but hey, if I can save some $$$....... I have spent hours online trying to find the manufacturer or another seller.
ANY input would be GREATLY appreciated. I go through about 6-8 filters per year.
Thanks, Grumpee Gramps.

Why are you using 6 – 8 a year? You do realize those filters are cleanable and washable. That’s why they are $178.

Thanks for all the input.
I contacted Wynn last week, they make other sizes, but not a 13” x 13”. I am starting to think that size is proprietary only for Oneida. I use compressed air cleaning 4-5 times and water rinse about 3 times each filter. That pretty much ends any fine particle filtration. I do a lot of sanding thus the need for new filters. Also I was diagnosed with copd last year, not from wood dust, but from smoking decades ago. I use the mini, a jds air filter attached to the bottom of the ceiling trusses and a P100 filter mask. I bought the mini gorilla for a very little and it only had less than 100 hours use, basically new.
Clacor probably makes this filter, but as an end user they won’t sell to anyone but distributors. GE used to make it, but they sold that division to Clacor.
I may get a conversion kit and then could hook up a 13” x 38”. For now I’ll keep looking.

Thank you all again, GrumpeeGramps
