Link not working,...I can't see the product..

BTW- Don't you have to own a business to buy from grainger,...I didn't think they sold to regular customers.
As long as you know someone that has a business account there, you will be able to buy from them. If you know either the name or phone number of the business on the account, you will be good. I've purchased from there many times before and have always used the name of a friend's business and have paid either cash or CC every time... :thumb:

1) Click on link.
2) Search for desired product
3) Purchase if you want to

Thanks for looking :wink[3]:

I had ordered a few filters from Norther Tool but I can find where it says what micro rating their filters are now.

A half decent list of fuel filters available anywhere via Fleetfilter or Napa is enclosed for your use, hope it helps.

Grainger will sell to anyone now. If you work for a big industrial concern (like Boring) then you might get 10-20% like I do.

Also try McMaster.com and JMESales.com for 1-2 micron filters, although I don't think JME will have any that low.

Good luck.

i was going to buy another bag as mine has about had it, but went and purchased a filter mount, filters, and drum strainer this morning. total about $60 (a good deal in shipping). all i will ever have to re-purchase are spin-on filters. i may expand the system in the future for greater flow. all i need now is npt to hose barb fittings for the hose. i hope it works well. im tired of bag filtering...

Good for you, way worth it. Worst case scenario you can get a filter at NAPA. They wont filter as small microns but still work to clean up the oil.

Home Depo has those fittings, I found them in plastic for around $1 each. I needed 4 for the 2 filters I plumbed together.
