Stay-At-Home Projects - MFT Cart Changes
« on: March 29, 2020, 08:03 AM »
I finally got around to using the PARF Guide to cut all the holes and added a hose hanger with some scrap pieces I had laying around.  I rearranged some of the pull outs to make room for the Dust Extractor.312506-0Before312508-1After312510-2Hose Hanger

@jg24 - what are the dimensions of your nifty Systainer cart?
how did you arrive at those?

PS: amazing how something as simple as a hook or bracket can help solve the annoyance of hose- or cord tangles [smile]

Overall Dimensions are 56"L x 34"H x 31"D

The initial idea was to make it big enough for three systainers wide on both side.  The height was based on Systainers I had at the time.  I needed the height to allow for the largest Sys (TS55) and a Sys1.  The area under the table top was thought to be for storage of various things. 

Then recently I decided to get the SysVac off the floor, and utilize the "storage" area for more Sys Drawers. So, I added the two displaced Sys1 right under the top.  I still have room for more sys combinations on the back side.

Right now I am working on a holder for Rockler Bench Cookies and bench dogs out of some acrylic.  It will be mounted on the left end under the hose hanger.

I decided to make additional changes to my MFT Cart storage.  The original design had Sys drawers on both sides, then I removed a few to store the CT22.  Now, I’ve changed again and went back to a version of the first design. 

I’ve changed to 28” drawer slides so all the Systainer are available from the front.
