. I like those shorter length Bits. Nice to have a shorter bit for some applications that is in between the standard AND the stubbies

The item in the picture is not a Festool product, but something cobbled together from the newly launched MiniSystainer with see-thru top (for sale for around 20 usd), an existing insert (I think Tanos sells these) and sundry Centrotec items. Whoever sells these makes a very nice profit.

The Amazon listing shown above and the one that I saw yesterday shows Festool as the provider. I doubt a third party putting together their own kits could show it as sold by Festool. At least I hope not!

It's definitely a Festool product. It was featured in one of their newsletters a couple of weeks ago.

What is noteworthy beside this set itself, is the transparent lid insert. It's available separately (at least in Germany) and will work with all mini Systainers: Tanos No.: 80590802. Placed in the lid of your Mini-Systainer it then covers the black sorting style (multiple compartment) inserts closely/firmly and ensures that everything stays sorted even when the Mini-Systainer tumbles/ is turned upside down. Being transparent it won't obstruct the view into closed Mini-Systainers that already have the transparent lid.

$185?! Surely there must be some more accessories hiding underneath that top level.

What’s strange (and / or interesting) is that two days ago I looked up this set up on Amazon and the price was $160 and it said that there were only two left. I purchased one. The next day, after reading this thread , I searched Amazon for it again. This time it told me that the price was $185 and that there were only two left. Let the conspiracy theories begin😊.

You created a demand for the product and Amazon answered by uping the price.  [big grin]  [big grin]

Yes maybe but it makes me wonder what the price was “at the beginning”. Actually I found it on Festool UK and the $160 was approximately equal to that price, once converted into USD.

  Was there another view with the Top Tray removed so you can see what might be underneath?   [blink]

I think thats it after all it is main systainer. I like the kit.

But dont have $185 right now.

But thats a good idea on buying a insert for a mini and make my own kit.

The mini is a lot easier to store and take out of drawers etc then a full blown Installers kit.

They do make a smaller kit no stubby bits but a selection of bits. I have one . Havnt used it much but I will now

Ehh, I've got all I need

#1/#2 robbies
#2 Philips
#2 Pozidrive

So not too painful considering they're very nice long lasting bits. The dealer was trying to push an installers kit on me, screw that (pun intended).

I think deploying an attic lid onto the systainer with the drill (to hold spares, possibly in the bit holders that fit there) and having the most needed bit types at hand on the magnet holder of the tool is superior - and cheaper.

Street Price in Germany is 85€ for the Sys-mini CE.
But I also think that the lid inserts are better Value.

If someone made 50mm centrotecs as a good set, that would be nice.
But even with the mini, you only get one each of the 50mm, which makes it not worth it, from my point of view..

Yes, the rest is filled with special FT N2 anti-oxidizing gas.  [wink]
But once you open the case it will escape.  [eek]
Replacement gas is available at reasonable (as FT goes) prices.  [big grin]

They used to sell the stubbies in a lid insert.  At least a Protool version.
Mine deformed after one or two uses though.  They were the old gold colored version with a hardness similar to clay or pewter.  To be honest, 75mm ones would be my cats meow.  100 is usually too long and using the 50's, I concede: just a little too short.   Call the doctor, I've got a goldilocks disorder.

These sets are getting tiresome.  Surely it can't be cost effective to order small lots of this and that.   Shout out to Atlas Machinery and Snappy for preventing me from having to buy a whole kit just for a pair of Robertson bits. 😄
