wvo filtration

I currently filter my wvo to 1 micron thru a sock style filter and was wondering if I'm asking for trouble or if this is sufficient?

Although some may claim it is sufficient, there is a much more thorough and safer method. Read around the section here about centrifuges. These systems are proven and IMHO way faster and easier too.

I agree the bag filters can get very messy. I'll do some more reading on the centrifuges, can a person build there own or am I better of just investing the money in a pre made one?

Right, that's why you didn't say it. Many others, including me, have had great experience with it. CF is great. It's not the only option.

Well I filter 3 times down to 2 micron but I know there is still stuff getting through because they are rated on efficiency. I just ordered my CF yesterday so I plan on filtering with my setup and then CF'ing that just to see what is getting through it
