Cover plate for TS 75
« on: April 22, 2020, 10:22 AM »
Apologies if this has been asked, but why no cover plate accessory for the TS 75? Seeing how it’s available for the TS 55, and seems to be well-liked. Thanks for your help.

I printed one like what Dusty sales. His looks better than mine but mine works fine. SIGNIFICANT improvement.

You will still have dust that escapes coming out of the cut regardless of what you slap on the side of the saw. Dave Stanton did a video on collecting the stuff that shoots out of the front on the saw if you're using an MFT type table. I've been meaning to do that, maybe I'll get that small project in motion.

I ordered a cover plate from Dusty tools. It didn't fit my Ts 55 or TS 55req.  Fell right out. I was issued a refund

Yeah I still can’t figure out what date they tweaked the design of the TS 55 REQ. Fortunately I’ve sold ~40 and only had to send 3 refunds...

I ordered one, and received an email from the owner asking me to measure my TS 75 opening as some some models had slight differences in size depending on the manufactured date He sent two doors which I thought was a first class move on his part.....one fit one did not.
My thoughts are if you are dealing with a class guy .....they will make good on their product He’s demonstrated that for me.

What material are you printing these with? In that color I'm guessing PLA?

I see. And no issues with it melting when left in hot temps? Like outdoors, in direct sunlight on a summer day? Supposedly PLA will start losing its strength around 45C/113F.

Ha! Well thats nice! I was more asking because you are selling them to anyone and most probably dont know about these properties of 3D printed products made using PLA and I was curious if you had gotten any feedback yet describing issues due to heat. Typically products such as these would be made using PETG or ABS.

No concerns yet but good to know. I could print them in PETG but I don’t know if I can get the same color.

Yea probably not, but IMO a light grey to match the housing color of the saw would look better.

Green= moveable or removable  ;)
There are no mistakes....just new designs.
