Hello Vacuumland!

I'm a new member and I wanted to introduce myself and ask a question. I only got into vacuum collecting this year or so and have built up a small pile of recent machines:
(Kirby Avalir (post-100th anniversary version, but not the one with more red). Kirby Sentria I. Fairfax A Touch of Class SCPD7 (2018) with an upgraded motor and WW EKB 360 Power nozzle. Rainbow D4C SE PE with both the PE power nozzle and the older boxy version. Tristar CS (with the dark finish). Thermax AF-1 Signature Series(Dark Green). Eureka "The Boss" bagged upright (like a Sanitaire that uses the F&G bags with the on-bag fill tube). A Watermatic V Filter Magic on the way!)

Anyhoo, with the Watermatic on the way, I was wondering if anyone knew where I might find extra permanent filters should I need them. I plan on using Silver King HEPA filter disks as the disposable filters, but would like a spare permanent filter or two.

I believe that Filter Magic was acquired by Superior Manufacturing Inc in 2006 or so and then went out of business in 2013 or 2014 but figured that there might be some extra supplies floating around.

As a side question, the Watermatic V should have a 7 amp motor. Did the final versions of the Filter Magic have more powerful motors or did they remain relatively unchanged? I know the last Silver King pulled something like 13 amps (with power nozzle) but wasn't sure of Filter Magic tried the same thing. I tend to throw both of them and the Fairfax into the McAllister Bagless family tree.
