Somehow I have manaed to lose all three of the tiny screws that are used to mount the dust cute on the Dewalt DW734 planer. So far no luck finding replacements.

Your help appreciated.
Thanks

And now for an update. After inspecting the dust port, I realized the two clips on top will hold the port in place. Underneath, there is a screw hole in the center where one of the tiny screws held the bottom of the dust port in place. So…I used a small self tapping sheet metal screw and ran it into the existing hole. That is holding the bottom of the port in place. Nice easy fix.

Thanks for the help. I have the planer back in action.
