OK, after joining here I'm curious enough to cut apart the PureOne filter I took off my truck last Friday after a 2942 mile run. I have an older Dremel (somewhere) and time on my hands. My question is how y'all handle the spring action. I don't have a vise but I have a C-clamp that I can use to lightly contain the housing while I cut on it. I assume folks who have done this do something similar or am I way overthinking this?
