Not mine (as it is still on my to-do list) but this is the sort of thing you can make :

The previous post looks awesome, but I just set mine on top of my CT33 dust extractor.

My sys MFT sits on top of my vac with clamps in it. The grip strip prevents it from sliding once placed. The track saw cage attached to the mft in the previous post is nice, but wont work for me as i have another table that i move in and out to butt against my mft. Managing work space is more an art than science. Some have perfected it .. for me its always wip.  May be another thread asking people to share their work spaces would be nice.. 🙂.

Like @twistsol1, I set my TS55 on top of my CT when using my MFT/3.

I made a receptacle for the TS55 (and the shaper orgin) that fits on top of systainer. It reduces the risk of the tracksaw failing from the stack.

I put a couple of locating blocks onto the bottom of a piece of MDF, to sit on top of my CT26. That gave me a nice flat surface, which was right behind the cut-off bench. That worked out for me for quite a long time, then when I added a taller cabinet to the end of the run. It now has an opening for the CT at the bottom, but covered that flat top surface when backed into that hole. I made a small pull-out shelf with a short rim around it for the saw to sit in after that. Works essentially the same and pushes away when not in use. Of course this is not a mobile solution, like an actual MFT could be. The flat MDF slab on a CT or stack of Systainers would do though.

Dump (I mean: park) unused machine in the hose garage of the vac.

Sadly, the hose garage has gotten worse from that. CT-22 very nice. Newer ones have the handle in the way, but it still holds a bunch.

Oh, CT 22 orginal sold without hose garage. The 22-SG came with detachable hose garage. Later models have a permanently attached hose garage.
