For those with a 3D printer (or with access to one), here's a printable design that should give a good result for the dreaded broken dust cover hinges: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4121606

FYI, this is the almost-complete list with all the Technics turntables that have this hinge system:

SL-220, SL-221, SL-223, SL-230, SL-231, SL-23,
SL-B1, SL-B2, SL-B3,
SL-D1, SL-D2, SL-D3,
SL-Q1, SL-Q2, SL-Q3,
SL-5100, SL-5110, SL-5200, SL-5210, SL-5300, SL-5310,
SL-3100, SL-3110, SL-3200, SL-3210, SL-3300, SL-3310,
SL-D20, SL-D200, SL-D210, SL-D202, SL-D30, SL-D300, SL-D310, SL-D330, SL-D303,
SL-B20, SL-B200, SL-B210, SL-B202, SL-B30, SL-B300, SL-B310, SL-B330, SL-B302,
SL-Q20, SL-Q200, SL-Q210, SL-Q202, SL-Q30, SL-Q300, SL-Q310, SL-Q330, SL-Q303,
SL-BD2, SL-BD20, SL-BD20D, SL-BD21, SL-BD22, SL-BD22D, SL-BD33,
SL-DD2, SL-DD20, SL-DD20D, SL-DD21, SL-DD22, SL-DD22D,
SL-QD2, SL-QD20, SL-QD20D, SL-QD21, SL-QD22, SL-QD22D
SL-D33, SL-B33, SL-Q33
SL-QX300

Many of them are very average "plastic fantastic" turntables, bot some of them are gems (like the SL-Q33 on which I tried the repair).
