Thanks to all for their input on filtering used mineral spirits from 
my parts cleaner.
Here are the results:

I had some limited success with the coffee filter idea but the 
filters tended to clog quickly and they didn't filter out much contaminants.

I had several NOS paper vacuum filter bags which although bigger 
exhibited the same problem as the coffee filters.

12 hours or more of undisturbed "settling" in the plastic and metal 
gallon containers seem to do as much or more to remove the 
particulate contaminants as either of the filter methods.

I have about 4 remaining gallons in "settling" stage which I will add 
to the current reclaimed MS in another 12+ hours.

Rick Norris recommended Northern's filter kit which is $50 plus 
shipping but several reviews by users besides Rick were not very positive.

Once again, Thanks to everyone who gave suggestions.
