I have an older Rockwell cabinet saw that is missing the motor cover. I am sure you can imagine the is not the best for dust collection. I need to start getting a grip on dust collection in the basement workshop. I tried a search to see if anyone has made a motor cover for one of these but came up empty. I am assuming this is doable with some 1/4 plywood or something?

It is just like this.

I am not at home right now. I will try and provide a better photo later.

An “or something” idea might be to find a plastic storage tub about the same size and shape of the original cover and attach it with gorilla tape if you don’t want to drill new screw holes.

I’ve seen covers made for these over time, plastic injection molded, they were of rounded kind. Can’t remember exactly where I saw them but you might want to check over at If you can’t find them there post a query, someone may know.
