This custom inlay gives more room for cutting discs storage and it makes the parts fit tighter so that they stay in place during transport. It also has room for either the charger or the optional dust collecting wheel guard (Part No. 196845-3).


The inlay was designed at a height 180mm, but later cut down to 114mm to save printing material and time. The full height isn't needed so it was cut off. You can use the FreeCAD source file to create an alternate version to your own requirements.
