You would probably be OK using drywall anchors. There is some mechanical stress when removing/installing the filter housings, but I think anchors would hold up to that as long as you were careful.

What I recommend... Mount a board long enough to span two studs and screw the board into the studs, then mount the filters to the board using wood screws.

Are you getting a used S1?

Nice!
I hooked someone up with a used S1 from this forum. MartinG sold his unit to someone locally in my area and his machine was in excellent condition also. Nice machine, you'll really enjoy it!

Did he (shutterman) mention why he sold it? Just curious as to what upgraded to...

That's the same (sort of) response MartinG had for selling his. He actually moved back to a superauto for convenience again, he was actually using Pods with the S1. Some people don't have time to mess around in the mornings with extra stuff so I guess it made total sense for him.

Hope you enjoy that fine machine, I'm sure you'll get some really good use out of it.
