I’ve seen products from both companies. I have the Wynn filter on my Harbor Freight dust collector in my shop, and the metalfab company where I work buy their filters from Damn Filters. Both products look and perform very well.

In terms of customer service, we are talking apples and oranges here. Wynn specializes in small woodshop dust collection. Damn filters is manufacturing and selling directly to large industrial companies with fleets of dust collectors. I know, for a fact, that they could care less about selling one or two filters at a time to small shops. (I’ve asked them about a replacement for my HF.) These guys are used to dealing with crotchety supervisors and purchasing departments buying 10 to 100 filters at a pop. I’d give them a break about not wanting to send you a filter that costs more to ship than it does to make.

My company changes out filters, 12 at a time, every 6 to 9 months. We’ve never had a quality problem with the damn filters and we’ve saved quite a bit of money by using them over the big name manufacturers. The cost to performance ratio is fantastic. But again, we’re talking industrial scale here.

Bonus, our purchasing gal always gets a chuckle her when the tell her to order the “damn filters”.
