Who doesn’t love their shop vacuum? But, in order for it to operate at peak efficiency, it’s really important to clean the filter on a regular basis. But, how do you do that neatly and quickly? Well, here’s one way you can.
Take a six inch long machine bolt, two washers, and a nut, and put it through the center hole of the filter. Feed it through from the underside, and put the washer and the nut on the top and tighten it up.
Once you’ve snug it up by hand, use a wrench on one side and a nut driver on the other to get it nice and tight. Now, chuck it into the drill, and use the power of the drill to spin out all that dust in the filter.
This will make your shop vacuum filter nice and clean again.
