I like your filter support system :-)
I have made no progress on my side since I was busy on other things. I've got to get into this in June.
BTW, did you observe any temperature issue with the filter ?
No heat issues at all at the moment. But it is still standing on my desk. (-;
Hope to be able to test it soon, will let you know the results.
