After reading the threads on the 024AV filter, there appears to be 2 filters (1 flocked and 1 mesh).

Am I correct in that the flocked filter is part number 1121 120 1625, and runs about $30?
Is this the most common type of filter that should be utilized in the 024AV?

Also

Is it correct that one can replace both 024AV shrouds with that of the 026, and then be able to utilize the more commonly available 026 filter such as those found here:

Thanks for the info and your time.

I just bought 2 of the 024 filters through my dealer. They're the short version. The 026 filter is almost twice as tall and the filter cover is totally different. Not sure what "fine mesh" filters are referring to. Mine are metal screen with flocking and set me back $35 each. Expensive, but cheap insurance on a great saw.

There are fleece and flocked, and the older saws had a real tight meshed metal screen, way before the 024. The flocked filters were built upon a wider mesh screen, that was not visible for 20 years.
