looking for filter for old shopvac


I was given a shopvac that I think is at least 20-30 years old. It needs a new filter but I have trouble finding it. The brand is Advance Machine Company, model J108. Does anyone know if this unit needs some type of generic filter that I can still buy?

Thanks

Doubt that you will be able to find the exact filter, I have this same challenge with an older craftsman shopvac, and my solution is to buy generic filter bags that fit over the inlet and are held in place with a draw string. I have seen them at HD. Worst case scenario you could always make one.
hope this helps

Thanks. What type of bag would you recommend? One concern is that the vac seems to be pretty powerful so I presume the bag must be sturdy enough not to get ripped up by the air flow. What type of bag are you using?
