DIY Rolling Systainer (Sys Cart)
« on: March 17, 2020, 12:24 AM »
Typically on jobs I stack all my systainers on my vacuum. I’ve wanted a way to roll around a second stack but couldn’t justify $100 on a cart. So I used about $20 in casters and just permanently attached them to an unused sys classic.
I plan on filling it with caulking, paper towels, tape, drywall patch/knives etc. stuff I use frequently but never set up a systainer for.
I set the plywood on the bottom and used a flush trim router bit. Let’s see how it works, I’ll post a pic once I figure out how to fill it.

As promised here is attempt #1 at caulking systainer. My most common caulking/patching tools. 3 styles of putty knives. Drywall patch and wood putty. Sander and magic eraser. White and clear caulk. Vinyl cleaner. Paper towels and rags. Etc etc.
we will see how it does this week.

That’s very well sorted - nice layout and one look control of the content.

Some of us is having exciting times  [blink] when uploading, for me from iOS devices.
The upload function here is rather sensitive to what you do as well, especially when trying to edit photos in a post already posted - that can be fun - time flies by fast [big grin]

Nice setup, I need to get some larger boxes for consumables etc.
 I also did something similar with my Bosch LBoxx and purchased a spare top (L-RACK-T)

Platinum Patch - go to for exterior work?
