 Of course there are the old Vortex diatom filters that use a Ball canning
 jar and sits on a narrow round base so that it often falls over on its
 side.  While these are clumsy to set up and use, they do a very good job of
 filtering water particles down to 1 micron.  I want something that does as
 good a job as these, but was designed for easier use. >>

If your only problem is the Vortex's clumsiness, ands tendancy to fall over,
get a wide pane of 1/4 inch glass, or a piece of plexi, and glue it to the
bottom of the jar with silicone.  IMHO, it is still the simplest polishing
filter around
