Title: 6" (150 mm) Sandpaper Storage Insert
Post by: grbmds on June 22, 2022, 10:36 AM
Festool currently sells a 150mm Granat sandpaper assortment in a Systainer 3 (237 mm).  Is the insert alone available? I haven't found it on the Festool site.

I have an extra Systainer and thought that would be a good use of it.

Is your Systainer a Classic, T-Loc, or SYS3? Inserts are usually available as spare parts and the actual product number for the part is moulded into it.

The new Systainer with 6" assortment of Grant looks like it's a cardboard insert.

I have the previous Systainer with plastic insert (linked above by guybo) and it's not awesome. The discs do stay in place, but the depth of the channels should have been deeper to keep the discs from drooping.

Lots of wasted space in the Festool version, and it really does suck. Make one instead or buy one from Ebay. Could be made from Laun wood etc. I woiuld use ABS.

I cut 150 mm disks out of cardboard to prevent that. Works great.

I posted one such insert (https://hub.shapertools.com/creators/5bcf493945760d0017441fce/shares/5eca0d1d254f6b000fe7456b) on shaperhub.

Here's the empty Sys 3 with insert from Festool and it's the one I have. Not awesome. I mean, the base insert is okay, but could have been so much better if the channels were deeper.

I think I'll do a hybrid of what gwendal did and use the insert as the base with the wood further separating.
