Hi gang

Normally I don't reply to myself, but I've had a pretty good response for
information on these filters.  I'll do my homework and post to the list
as soon as I can.

I'd like to stress (some more) that these are NOT exact replacements
for original or NOS parts.  These are newly designed replacement parts that
Rockwell saw a need for in the repair and new equipment marketplace.

So if you're in the "restore like new" business, this won't hurt
you a bit.  In fact, it may even help you, because there are
thousands of nice but non-original Collins (and other) rigs out there
that could benefit from a new filter -- or better, give up a functioning
filter to benefit a more restorable specimen.

As I said, I have no financial interest -- I'd like to pass along
information so that moer of us can have more affordable nice rigs.
