Post by: Tooms on January 05, 2019, 03:22 PM
Just for fun and because i am curious, can we make an thread with the what your non-standard-product systainer looks like and what you use it for.

Just for fun to look into the toolboxes of the fellow systainer fan.

So post an photo and an small text with each photo...

A few years ago, I rigged up a Sys 5 classic to use for transporting a mixture of hand tools etc.  I borrowed ideas from previous FOG poster's. Although I don't make a habit of it, the last time it was full, it weighed 40 lbs.

Also rigged up a Midi with my drill/reciprocating saw stuff a few years ago. I added a metal plate and adhesive magnet strips to the lid (inside) for saw blades. The adhesive didn't hold up, so I abandoned that idea.

I put my Carvex and Milwaukee M12 Jigsaws in a Sys2 with an attic lid.  I keep a Collins Coping foot and a coping saw in the box as well:

Festool is NOT the only premium price tool but is one of the few that include a rigid box to protect them.  I got and anthracite Sys1 on sale from Woodcraft last year to keep my True Position Cabinet Hardware install jig in.  The jig comes in a cardboard box!  You can buy a goofy blow molded case for it for something like $30.  I like being able to stack, store, and transport everything in a standardized way.

I upgraded from a 5 gal bucket to a SYS-ToolBox SYS-TB-2, the great thing about it is that it stacks with the rest of my tools and is easy to move around the job site on the top of my Sys-Roll.

@Mortiser, @PeterJJames13 is correct!  It is an Occidental 5057 Pocket Caddy.  I got it from Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00002251E/ref=oh_aui_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1).  The neat thing about it is that it has a snap so you can put it on your belt without removing your belt OR you can slide the back flap of the pouch in your back pocket for the quick jobs.

Wanted to organize my little apartment toolbox and glued an elastic band around the edge to allow for storage other than "chuck it into one of the two compartments". It's more flexible than custom plywood inserts if not nearly as attractive, does the job, though. This approach would work better in the black Tanos version of the toolbox.

That looks super nice. Did you do the cutouts in the yourself or did you order it custom made?

I wondered if the CMS OF stuff could fit in a Systainer Midi, but I guess not. How space do you have left over on the sides of the biggest part? I transported my CMS OF stuff in a banana box recently... and I didn't like that.

Did you use the Tanos foam?

I used Kaizen foam in all three Systainers. All of the SYS OF will fit in a Maxi only, you need to separate the fence which is dead easy to do and you need to break down the guard as well, that take a minute or so to put together but it has reall saved damaging the kit or losing parts when you are on a job

There is nothing wrong with your router bit organizer as far as I am concerned. I wanted one. Only problem was there weren't enough people interested to make it economical to produce by CNC as I remember.

There was no fail on your part is my point, and I don't think of it in that way. It is a well thought out design that makes excellent use of space available and is expandable to whatever Systainer you wish to use.

Maybe in place using CNC the pieces could be cast in plastic. Think about selling the idea to Rockler or FastCap or someone else. Take the money and spin it into your next great idea. I have no doubt you have a few more you are wanting to try.

All of my small hand tools are kept in three sortainer SYS 4s. This one is my everyday tools and has ALOT crammed into it. I have tried to organize it better but can never fit as much in it so I just pile everything in. I know where each tool is, it is just a matter on moving stuff that is on top of it.

I keep this box and my drill kit in the last photos where I can get to them from the sliding door of my van without getting in the van. They are actually on a cart/mobile workbench that I will take inside with me on some jobs.

The other 2 sortainer SYS 4s have my less used tools and are kept up on the shelves inside the van.

This last one I'm looking for suggestions on. I have my Dewalt 20volt 16 gauge and 18 gauge nailers in a systainer (I think it is a sys4 but might be a sys5?). I wanted to build a plywood caddy/insert for them but the lid just barely closes now with the slim batteries in the guns.

Does anyone have a good dewalt nailer setup with both guns, charger, spare batteries, and nails in one systainer? I have tied a few ways of putting them in and his was the only way I got both to fit and it is tight height wise.

There is a stop block so the shelves don't slide out and there are recesses in the shelves for the feet of the systainers. So far none have fallen out.

Nice van build Trucks. I also have my drill/impact in a combi sys 2, without the storage lid though. I had my doubts about its durability but it's held up surprisingly well, knock on wood, and I think it's a big improvement on the old Husky cantilever box I was using.

at first i was thinking of yellow case with dark handle and tloc, but i think it is alot better with the dark case and then just have the color on the handle and tloc

for the label i try to make the big and clear in design, so the are easyer to read

Because of different standards. Some software ignores that one bit that says "rotate". If you then manually rotate it and then feed it to some other software that does recognize that rotate-bit... it will show wrong again.

@Bartel   Your Bosch kit looks great! The jigsaw seems to be much smaller than I thought, so now it’s tempting. Does it work well? Are the 10.8 and 12 batteries interchangeable?

Does someone know if the lids for the Sys-Storage Box will fit the Sys-Toolbox 2 ?

The clear lids? Not sure of the physical size would fit , it might,  I have both and can check when I go to the shop. But you would need to come up with some type of hinge / attachment even if they would fit. But that could be worth exploring for added versatility. Though if you really needed larger closed space , a regular Systainer can do that job.

It looks doable. But would take some work. A vertical slot needs to be cut in each corner (easy), Some sort of screw or rod added to mount the lid.  The center would still have quite a bit of open space under the handle. I did not take any measurements.

Thanks, Michael!
Yes, the Bosch GST performs quite well for its size (and price).  Mostly I just use it on site for a quick cut out.
Indeed, the batteries are interchangeable. However, in an older model charger, the 12V 4.0 Ah batterie takes much longer to charge than in a recent model.

A few more. If it fits in a systainer, then it should be in one. Add a piece of Kaisan foam and all the accessories for that tool too. Less trips to the truck.

Thanks Seth for checking that. I would like to use the toolbox but have a lid to keep the dust (or most of it) out of my hand tools. I may give this a try.

I didn't take any measurements and certainty of success is not guaranteed. If you try it post it!

Lol that's my fault that one. I know the Insane Dane and while chatting one day I said why didn't he attempt a full size systainer version of that micro sys tank that we had seen.

Being completely mad he loves a challenge and this was the resulting video.

Sadly he's not having a good start to 2019 as just the other week some scumbag broke into his van a stole a big chunk of his Festools :-(

Yes i cut the Kaizen foam to fit it.  I still have the bulky hard case that came with it that doesn’t stack or store well.  I made the labels and printed them and laminated them.

Two sets of Wera nut drivers (metric and Imperial) on FastCap Kaizen foam bed. Blocks of Kaizen foam glued to the bed make up the dividers that hold the nut drivers in place.

That look pretty cool.  Good idea gluing the dividers.

My version of a `quick and dirty` SYS-air.

The first pic is just the unit with the lid open showing guns & hose. Usually there is a bottle of glue in there as well.

Second pic is a more unobstructed view. It also shows the `divit` where the hose and the power cord lead out with the ability to close the lid. That divit was due to a mishap on the jobsite which later proved to be fortunate.

The third pic shows the modification to the compressor to allow it to sit on its 4 feet. The modification was to remove about 1 to 1 1/2 inches of tubing from the frame. I can't remember for sure, but I think I also turned the motor 180 laterally on it's mounts so the starter capacitor would clear the tank. Unmodified is still fit in the systainer, but rather sloppily and as a result made the unit made a ton of noise.

This is just a 1 gallon Senco compressor i picked up at the cheapo-depot as my prior systainer version had blown it's reeds with replacements no longer available.

For those wondering:
Yes, I can and generally do, run this with the lid closed. Helps keep the crud out of the box and makes it quieter. It has only popped the thermal one time. My guy was running speed base on a 90 degree day with the lid closed. Nothing but nailing, everything had been pre-cut and dry fitted already. in a systainer or out of one, this little compressor was never intended to run a 15 gauge gun at that production level as it only 30% duty cycle if I remember correctly. He thought he burned it up but it was just the thermal breaker. He admitted that the unit hd not been keeping up with him. And yes, I/we have more appropriate compressors for that.

Here is my solution for my Sys Toolbox. This has worked pretty well for me. It may not be what you want but it may give someone some inspiration to help solve their tool storage issues. I use mine in the shop but have taken it to the job site a few times. I simply took an old bucket organizer I had from Home Depot, if I remember correctly, I think I paid about $7. I cut it apart and used pop rivets to attach it. I may have used a few small bolts (10-32) to reinforce it. I have inside loops for tools and a lot of pockets. It can be removed if I ever decide I don't like it or need it anymore but I have been using it for about 2 years and it is quite handy. I can move it to where I am working and have all my most used tools within easy reach.

This is not a systainer post directly. I was modifying one of my systainers and I found this file underneath the plastic insert. Most likely from packing. Kind of neat for festool swag. The only thing I have gotten from Festool for free.  [big grin]

Nice thread guys, Fingerlicking and very OCD friendly.
I made this insert for my beloved OF 1010.
Plywood and 4mm cork.
Fits snugly and secure.
The router is now laying correctly (rather than reversed).
Next time I will use thinner plywood.
For the rest I'm very happy.
Of course, this is 1% necessary and 99% fun.

This is my setup for kitchenfitting. My apprentice calls it R2D2. Only thing I need to modify, is something to mount my 1200mm level, hearing protection, and my caulkgun. I also carry a Hilti sportback with my other powertools, such as impactdriver, powerdrill, jigsaw, sds drill. And ofcourse, my radio. I can pretty much do about 80-90% of the work with this setup.
