Sys cart base
« on: November 22, 2019, 10:09 AM »
I found the syscart base on Lee Valley's site, but cant seem to find it at any other site.  Anyone know any other retailers for just the base without the casters? Plan to use it as an adapter plate on my Bosch VAC090AH so I can mount my systainers on it.

Last week I ordered some stock for Systainer.Store.  The stock won't arrive till just before Christmas, if it is on time. 
SYS CART Base hasn't been carried by Tanos USA in their warehouse, so any stock has had to come from Germany. 
I've had enough customers or potential customers ask that I've decided to pick the stock up.

If you have any old systainer lids one other possibility might be to make your adapter from a lid.  I used a TLoc lid from a broken systainer backed up with a piece of plywood for a compact systainer stack mount.  Seems to work fine.

I'm pretty sure I have a spare lid somewhere. I was going to do something similar and mount it on my Makita finish compressor but I need it on my vac more.   Might give that a try.  Although I like the more finished look of the base. 

@Systainer.Store that would explain why it seems impossible to get here in the states.  Like I said, it looks like Lee Valley is the only retailer that even lists it. 

Now that I finally picked up a syscart, I really like it and how the systainers lock into it.

There are 3d printed "hooks" available that mimic the bottom of a t loc systainer. Screw them to a piece of plywood and ...." Robert is your Father's brother"

I've 3D printed some of the models I've found online, but haven't tried any of them out in my workshop.  For Systainer.Store, I've wondered about making my own design and offering it, given the licenses of the models found online.  I've wondered if this item would sell enough to make it worth the small development cost.  What do you think?
