PLA is pretty strong, but in my experience it doesn't take much use outdoors before it starts to discolor and break down from UV exposure. PLA+ is a step better if you have it (I generally use PLA+ for everything)I'll give it a try with PLA, it should be strong enough as long as he doesn't have more metal dropping on it. I also have ASA but I would worry about warp on a part that big and flat.
I guess the question is how much @mommucked uses his saw outside ;-)
Yeah ASA is great for its higher UV stability but WOW is it hygroscopic and warpage is just as bad as ABS. We have a ton at work that is considered trash just due to age. It bubbles and pops really bad.
