  • Workshop Dust Filter System - Emerson

    Back in 2003, I outfitted my small shop with an Emerson Workshop brand air dust filter system (Model AB500) from Lee Valley

    On trying to order replacement filters for the unit, I was advised by LV that Emerson stopped production of air filters in 2007 & they have run out of replacement filters - I require filters #AB501 & #AB502.

    Here is the current LV description of a similar unit/filters,42401

    A Google search on the internet for a source has been unsuccessful.

    Any suggestions?

    Take a look to Camfil farr air filters they make quality products.

    You can have it at Tenaquip.

    Not sure for your dimensions requirement.

    Hope this can help you.

      Problem solved!
      I found a CDN company out of Montréal called on the web.
      Ironically, I order filters for my home air exchanger from them.
      They will custom 'build' both the Foam Pre-Filter & the Fabric Pocket Filter for me...for less $$ than still listed on the Lee Valley site.
      If anyone else has one of these units, call Richard at 800 808 0496...fantastic service!
      And thanks to tslbogger for helping out!

        Measure the size of the filter and see if you can get a furnace filter that same size or close to it. If you can't then maybe make a shallow plywood piece that will fit a furnace filter and go from there.

        Maybe this will be close to what you are looking for.

        Also if you can get a coarse filter with a fine one behind it.
