Let us know how it works. I'm also wondering if it's too fine and will clog.

i'll check the brand when i get back to work on the 28th.
short story is you should be able to find one at a paint store. It's a filter for a paint sprayer pump (the manifold filter) we charge $7.99 for this guy. some styles are all stainless, like this one, others are stainless mesh with a plastic frame.

EDIT:
here are some part numbers and pictures. looks like you can get a coarser or finer mesh, if you want.

graco brand parts are easier to find(home desperate and blowes carry them), but they use the plastic frame. i'd be concerned about the plastic at those temps, but who knows.
