I finished up #2 and it was smooth sailing this time now that I knew what to look out for. I ran through all the same domino operations at once for the sides and top/bottom to reduce error, clamped the stretchers up flush before driving pocket screws. It went together lickity split compared to the first and it's dead on square measured corner to corner.

I want to attach a 1/4" melamine back panel to each to hide the exposed particle board and add some rigidity. I can't seem to find any locally at least from the box stores. Any tips?

Kreg makes white pocket hole plugs so that may be one option.

I meant to the back of each carcass. The pocket holes will be hidden by the systainers

Kreg makes a plug cutter so you can make your own matching plugs from scrap of the same material.

Welp thanks (or no thanks?) to eBay and their sales they keep running. .the shop got a little more organized. Here's the current state:

The ports received 1/8" tempered hardboard backs and are attached to studs for stability. Casters just didn't work out even with threaded inserts designed for the task. The left one accommodates (1) Sys4, (3) Sys2, and (1) Sys1. Right is (1) Sys4, (1) Sys2, (2) Sys1, and a drawer on top that's currently holding all my dog accessories, but it will fit a Sys2 and possibly a Sys3.


Here you can see my first failed attempted at the sysport using China-ply, now repurposed as a shelf, and pegboard that I hung. The worktable is a Multifunctionslab I built using the pegboard jig a while back that a member here sells to create the grid. The bottom shelf was made later using the LR32 and those holes are on 96mm centers and perfectly square. Should I ever need to bang out another top I'll use it and a flush trim bit:


And finally the triple MFT setup. I'm going to use the second fence for precise offcuts. Just waiting on some Starrett tape from Amazon:

On your shelf pin holes, how did you start the first hole 8mm from the bottom? I just bought the LR32 kit and I'm trying to figure out how to use it. I see if I set the end stops at 16 and out, it puts the first hole at 16mm, not 8. @DynaGlide, maybe you can explain this as the rest of the build was well documented.

Thanks in advance!

I believe that the LR32 system will get you holes 32mm on center.  @DynaGlide mentioned that he went with 16mm on center, and based on that, it appears that the holes are as far from the edge as they are apart, which means they should be 16mm from the edge as well.

I may be wrong, I wasn't in the FOG 3 years ago when Matt posted this, hopefully he remembers and can clarify.

@Jason Hagen They start at 16mm. Where did you see 8mm?

I'm guessing from the SYS-AZ instructions; they state ≥8mm on them for the bottom 5mm hole. Of course, 16mm is greater than 8mm...  [wink]

TSO’s plans also show 8mm.

I figured either I could just go with 16 or get to 8 in one of the following ways:
  • Start the panel longer and trim it after making the holes.
  • Shim the LR32 stops to start it at 8mm.
  • Manually locate the LR32 rail to get to 8mm. 
I went with 16mm, because I wanted to be able to secure the rail with the end stops, then just flip it around for the next set of holes.

Usually, I’m the type to try to squeeze out every bit of usable space, but I didn’t think 8mm was worth fighting for.
