Rated 5 out of 5 by This filter has excellent filtering capability. I have two of these filters I use when doing my wood working projects. They are excellent filters. I change them and wash them and have had one of my filters for over 5 years. November 24, 2014

My wet/dry vac is pretty old but I need a fine dust paper filter. Can you tell me will this fit with my old vac?

If not, can I vacuum up a small amount of fine dust and then just wash my filter out?

your prompt response is greatly appreciated..

Answer: 
Hi Karen,

The current fine-dust filter, VF5000, can definitely fit RIDGID wet/dry vacuums that are 5 gallons and larger. We also made them to fit even the older models.

We really recommend using the fine dust filter for picking up fine dust. The filter is for capturing debris, and using the standard one will allow debris to escape through the blower port. This would cause more mess.

For any further questions or concerns you may call customer service at the number above or you may send your email to [email protected]

Regards,
RIDGID
