Fein multimaster inserts still available?
« on: December 16, 2020, 12:49 PM »
I've wanted a T-loc systainer for my multimaster since I saw them, but it was always too low on the priority list...

Have I missed out? I see the systainers, but no inserts, on the various seller sites.

Thanks

I have a version for T-Loc and Systainer3:  https://systainer.store/products/plastic-insert-fein-multimaster-style-for-t-loc-systainer3-new-style

This is not the Fein one, is it? I recall that being more of a high density foam...

My understanding from early on is that these are what Fein uses.  However I've not owned a Fein myself, and they may have switched up since I looked at them about a year ago.  Tanos part number and internal naming has been multimaster insert.  When they updated to the version for T-Loc and SYS3 I think they made the name more generic.

There have been a few designs, although I don’t think the foam versions are available anymore, but I guess it might be worth talking to Fein to see if they carry them as spare parts. From what I’ve seen, there are five designs, one of which was available in both t-loc and classic. The last two are foam, although I’ve only ever seen the second of the foam inserts in the flesh (it’s the one I have in my Systainer edition Multimaster):

324482-0324484-1324486-2324488-3324490-4324492-5

Oh, and Kaizen also do a custom one for the cordless Multimaster:

324494-6

And finally there was a Fein accessories insert for all your blades:

324496-7

In the past I talked with Fein about carrying a few of their systainer items since Tanos isn't able to sell direct to me.  My conversations with Fein were taking place just as COVID was setting into the US, so we dropped communicating.  A keep point I remember in the conversation was the MOQ, which was a bit high I thought, for just buying the various Fein Orange systainers and accessories.  In the new year I could consider picking the conversation back up.  New year.  Better business case for me to consider.

This is the Fein insert I have. I think it's just one of several designs they've offered over the years.

Actually, the  accessory systainer (with accessories) is still available:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/33901146220-Accessory-Systainer-Perfect-Oscillator/dp/B075CR4G39

I had thought Fein only sold empty systainers these days, but it seems that set is on their website after all - It is cryptically named 'Systainer Starlock Plus', with no images or information, but the part numbers match the Amazon listing:

Cheese, is that an original Systainer Edition, or something you've put together by buying the Systainer and insert separately? I only ask because the label doesn't look like the standard Fein one, and I thought the official Fein kits only came with the foam inserts.

Every once in a while Fein comes out with a set in Systainer. But it's been a while now...

Hmm, actually... last year;

That looks like the '2017 Anniversary Edition'... Basically a Systainer Edition Multimaster and the accessory set bundled. Not sure it counts as much of an 'edition' if they just release the same thing every year...

It’s one I put together. At the time, I had to order every piece separately.  [sad]

A google search for "Fein Systainer" will get you several dealers / sellers that have actual Fein versions with logo on the Sys and black handle. I have a Fein Sys T-Loc II with the plastic insert for my corded Multi-Master. Fits well, works well. The little extra height in the Sys-II makes it easy to coil the cord on top. Which is the same arrangement as the one Cheese posted.

Prior to that I used a double layer insert in an orange ( ex BTI) Classic Sys - III.

I just think that on the European side of the ocean the availability of custom Systainer gear is a bit better.

Mine was the foam style, like the one on the far right of spandex's post.
it had the orange Tloc with the white Fein logo. I bought it as a limited edition and was rather disappointed when I couldn't get a new one when the original was destroyed.
I thought about replacing it with a Vecturo, but at this time the only cordless Festool item I have is the TXS. I really wouldn't mind a corded version, IF it was otherwise the same. That's a big if though, because it is clearly left behind.

I like the double stack one Seth put together :) My poor abused multi tools live in a tool box full of other tools. My plan as I rearrange my tools is to do more double stacking. Already did my RO90 into a double stack in a Sys3.

Making inserts is not hard to do and material can be wood or plastic like ABS. May not be quite as light, but thin material can be used to keep weight down. Plus you can design whatever layout you desire.

Another option for those wanting their multi tool in a Systainer is to buy the Vecturo ;) Also comes in a cordless version, which for me is the only way to buy a multi tool.

Coen, It still comes corded (at least in the US), but it has not been updated/improved like the cordless version.
That is my hesitation. If I could get a corded version that was the same as the cordless, I would buy it tomorrow.

I'm a little late to this thread, but I don't believe anyone posted this.  Here what the insert looks like that came with the actual FEIN MultiMaster FMM350Q Systainer Edition Kit.  I picked this up from Menards several years ago.  Don't know if the insert was available separately from Fein.

Amazon has--or had, I may have snagged the last one--Fein Systainers for the Multimaster, apparently complete with insert, $115.

Yes, I posted that above, in the photos of all the inserts I’ve seen for sale. As far as I’m aware, it was the only insert design that was actually sold by Fein in a kit with a tool, and it wasn’t available as an accessory. It may have been available (and may still be, I suppose) as a spare part though.

Fein still sell the orange branded systainers (sys1 and sys2) and they still sell the foam accessory insert and a plastic insert for the AFSC18Q.

I have the hard foam version in a Fein Sys 1 that fits the MM350.
I sold the MultiMaster when I bought the new Vecturo.  Still have the Sys1 with insert though...

Thanks, @Spandex

Do you by any chance have a link for where I could get the insert for the AFSC18Q?  The one I have came in the Fein case not the systainer.  I did pick up an empty Fein Sys-2 and it would be great to use that instead.

It’s listed on the UK Fein website, but seems very hard to track down in online retailers anywhere in the world. I found a Canadian site that appears to have them (no idea how easy it is ordering stuff from Canada if you’re in the US):

http://www.toolpartsonline.ca/catalog/fein---33904542000---systainer-insert-for-afsc-18-q-detail

I suspect your best bet though is contacting a Fein main dealer to see if they can get them in. The Fein part number is in the link above.

<edit> A better bet may be the Kaizen foam insert, if you’re not bothered about it not being made by Fein:

Hey @Spandex  Thanks, again!
Sadly, The toolpartsonline website says it only ships to Canada, but I will check with some dealers after the holiday.

Merry Christmas!

It doesn't in Europe. Only Cordless. First there was the version with Plug-It, then the version without Plug-It, then only the cordless version.

Coen, That seems odd? I didn't realize that there were things available in the US that are not in other places? Plus the non plug it was available after the plug it version stopped? seems backward

    Since the corded Vecturo is no longer on the USA Festool site I am betting that it is being phased out. I don't speak for Festool so maybe not but .........................

    The cord was switched to hard wired  due to the vibration prematurely wearing out the Plug-It connections.
