The center tube is jagged and doesn't go all the way to the end cap. Hard to get a good shot of it without can opened. Goes about half way around with the gap and looks worse by eye than this. The yellowish media can be seen and the center tube edge. Another waste of money.

Yes, Baldwin is trying to get away with something here. Good on you for pointing out their evil conspiracy. Call the press!

shrug You make no sense. I am showing a fact with a picture. Maybe try a second mind track and get off the one track.

Looks like it's time to move away from Baldwin....

I see the gap with media showing through the gap when zoomed in. Looks like a media bypass oil leaker. Lack of glue seam?

Zoom in to the top back area of the center tube through the base plate center hole. I see a gap with media pleats showing.

The center tube stops short, the media goes all the way to end cap afaik. There is no end cap support for this center tube about half way around it's diameter. The other half is filled with glue. May still work ok for most uses, but the tube is also cut poorly. No soup for me, scratch one more. Next, #3 will be look down Boss center tube. Not too great either. Someone else saw the same problem on a Baldwin some time ago. It's QC on the assembly line I think, not the material, not the design. It's really a problem when people need to make a living wage, against the owners need for production. It's like the old I Love Lucy skit where she can't keep up with the assembly line. A $5 oil filter isn't going to be hand made in Geppetto's workshop.

This seems to be a Baldwin bashing thread. I don't see the evidence in the two photos.

You can't tell anything about the center tube in these pictures. The only thing I see appears to be the glue on the base plate missing on the right side of the first picture.

Red arrow points to a gap at the end of the center tube. You can see the media pleats through the gap.

Goodtimes - good catch. I would not use the filter either.

ZeeOSix - Thanks for the clarification.

Possibly there's a problem there, but I don't see why the center tube not reaching fully to the end cap is necessarily a problem, as long as the end of the media is securely sealed to the end cap. Sloppy-looking, yes, but not clearly a cause of bypassing. The media isn't going to blow through that narrow gap, any more than it blows through holes in the middle of the center tube. Cartridge filters function with effectively no center tube---and no end cap either, on some designs.
