“kingrude1”I have been wondering why the need for the hack? Is the original design not sufficient? I bought the gold filter and some of the replacement filters, I think I will use as is, and see how much life I get from the filters. 

Kingrude, in your situation you are correct.  There is no need for a liner if you only use the tampon filter material.  The hack is a cure to ease the concerns of gold filter owners who choose to fill their filters with Zeolite 13X micro sieve media for better moisture absorption.  If your compressor has a good water separator tower and moisture dump then very little moisture ever reaches your gold filter. If you have an economy Yong Heng/Tuxing type compressor you need to replace and recharge your factory tampon inserts frequently.  Any dealer who sells a pricey alternative filter has to have a sales pitch.  The hack is to debunk the concerns of those who believe that molecular sieve might damage unlined gold filters.
