Cover for complete THC unit and z axis?

Has anybody make a complete cover for the THC unit Z axis lead screw and all… So it doesn’t get any sparks or water splash on it ? Would like to see a picture of what was made if anybody has made one ?

Are you referring to the Z axis assembly? Someone here made a clear plastic box to cover the entire Z axis carriage and rails.

I made this 3d printed splash guard that fits around my machine torch.

Blow it off with shop air once a day then spray it with WD40. Keeps bearings lubed and ihs switch . wont have any issues.

I made a lexan one, it works good but the heat is causing cracks after extended use.

that is a really good idea. Do you have more pictures of how it is mounted to the z-axis
