We've included the best information we could get on the following units, as it relates to installing a pleated filter cartridge. Most of the data comes from our customers. We have no way of verifying every item, but we believe the data to be accurate. Please let us know if there are any errors or corrections, so that we can keep this information as accurate and current as possible. Thanks to everyone who has contributed to this page, we really appreciate it!

Harbor Freight 2 HP (Central Machinery)- This unit is completely straightforward. The 35A kit will fit perfectly without any muss or fuss. See the 35A page here.
Shop Fox 2 HP- Same as the Harbor Freight.
Jet 1100 Series- According to
Jet's documentation, this series has a 20" rim. We are not convinced
that this is correct, at least on some of the older units out there. According
to Tom in Oregon, the Older Style Jet 1100 has an inside diameter of about
17.25". This does not allow the 35A filter to fit inside the rim, and
a donut must be fabricated. Please click here for photos of Tom's
and note the way he recessed the gasketing. This allows a set of
turnbuckles to run between the filter rim, and the Jet's orifice plate,
sandwiching the donut between them. Very slick. Thanks Tom!
Jet 1200 Series- This is an interesting one. The OD is about 19.5". The older style unit has an inlet ramp, but no orifice plate. The newer ones have an orifice plate, but it's a different shape than the Harbor Freight. On the older unit, we suggest fabricating a donut to fit the ID. The best way we've seen to mount the filter comes to us from George D, in New Nork. He used a modified pipe bracket, along with threaded inserts. Click Here for George's setup. Also, check out the great write-up from Matt in C-town Here.
If you have a newer unit, the 35A will install directly, but the turnbuckles wind up being 1/4" too short. The solution is to either bend the hooks on the turnbuckle, install shims inside the filter lip, or add angle clips per LD (Click Here). Either way, it's no big deal.
Jet 1900 Series- These are the double-wide systems. According to Dominic in Michigan, the rims are about 20", and we believe that they are the same as the 1200 series. You can use the 35A setup (same as the 1200), or you could go with 9E300BL filters like Dominic did. He built donuts to fit the ID, added 9" holes, sealed them, then bolted on the filters. Click Here for photo. (Thanks Dominic, that's a nice setup)
Jet 650 Series- This is an interesting one too. It has a 14" can assembly and, depending when you bought your unit, the orifice plate could be located on the top, or the bottom of the can assembly! It's true. It seems that Jet switched this unit around some time ago. All the new units are made "correctly", with the orifice plate on the top. If you have an older one, the first thing you have to do is break off the spot welds, and move the orifice plate to the top. Secure it with gutter sealant. Then you fabricate a donut and install a 35A kit per Tom's design for the Jet 1100.
Delta 50-760- This unit is
getting great reviews, and until recently, we didn't have any installation
photos. Well, thanks to David T., in Oklahoma, we have some great
information. To see David's excellent write-up please (Click
Delta 50-850- This unit is similar, if not identical to the newer style Jet 1200. The Turnbuckles end up being too long, so you should either bend the hooks on the turnbuckles, install shims inside the filter lip, or add angle clips per LD (Click Here).
Delta 50-840- The 50-840 is similar to the newer style Jet 650. Follow the instructions above.
Delta AP400- Essentially the same as the 50-840.
Grizzly G1029Z- This unit may be similar, if not identical to the newer style Jet 1200. The Turnbuckles end up being too long, so you should either bend the hooks on the turnbuckles, install shims inside the filter lip, or add angle clips per LD (Click Here).
Penn State DC 250- 20" bag with orifice plate. Use 35A kit, but may require shims or clips per the Delta 50-850. We need more info.
General 2HP- Same as the Harbor Freight.
WoodTek 2HP #805-930- 20" bag with orifice plate. 35A will fit, but may require shims or clips per the Delta 50-850. We need more info.
JDS- 18.5" ID, with inner cone. Use 35A kit, and add angle clips per LD (Click Here).
Please feel free to send any photos or info you may have on these systems, as well as any we've missed. There are lots of units out there, and it's tough to keep track of all of them.
