Was working around my band saw (28-278) and leaned a little too hard on
the plastic belt guard and it shattered.
Replacements apparently are not available.
Anyone make one? and if so a picture will be a big help.

Thanks

Duan

Without an image of the original it's hard to suggest something, Clipper. However I'd suspect you could make one up out of thin, say 3/8" plywood and some sheet metal in the 16ga neighborhood. If you can tape the old plastic one together to hold it in one piece you could use it as a template/model.

That's kinda how I'd go about it.
