The part was made on a 3D printer.
The guy talks about it, apparently it interferes in vertical cuts limiting the height of the material you can cut.
(I had to search at the link he gave using the term – Dewalt mitersaw to find it),

I don’t have access to a 3D printer but I might have some shopvac fittings that I could modify – that or maybe some pvs, you can do some shaping if you heat it up.

Dez, Joe, let’s make this a two subject posting. I have been interested in learning to combine welding with woodworking. A plan, some sheet metal and a mig welder (?) would get me some dw708 dust collection using the 3d model as a model to work against. Is a mig the welder I need as a hobbiest?

A MIG would work fine but depending on future projects a TIG may be better.
You would have to some study of the differences and cost with future projects in mind.
I have a MIG and did use it to make a metal stand for a chest – combining metal and wood in one project.
After learning about welding different metals besides iron ( Aluminum and stainless) with my MIG and learning about some of the differences with TIG I wish I’d had the money to buy the TIG instead…
Live and learn, not to mention that TIG was much more expensive back then.
