Help with systainer storage cabinet
« on: February 10, 2021, 09:16 PM »
Well I started building a rolling systainer storage cabinet.  I have built the cabinet and all the shelves. 

I am now installing the drawings and realizing that the systainer will slide when pushed back in.  I have attached a picture of the drawer that I built.  Any ideas on how to add a stop that would be quick and easy?  I have made 18 of these and the front and back are already fastened.

Any thoughts are much appreciated.

Nice looking cabinet!

Just screw a stop block behind the Systainer. Make sure you leave a mm or so to make it easier to put the Systainer back in the drawer.

I routed a spot for the Systainer “feet” to sit in.
Just made a jig that had all 4 , and went to town.

If/when I do more,I will just add a stop to the back.
I needed to practice some templet routing .

That's what I did too.  I used that plans from TSO Systainer Cart Plan Set.  Worked well for me too.

You could make 18 boxes to sit back there and do double duty as stops and storage.

How do you open those trays?
Are the slides like ‘push in and pops out’?

I think the idea is that you grab the pull from underneath, but I installed them too close to each other for that to work.   

I just grab the systainer and pull them out.  Works fine.    I have thought about adding a draw pull, but it works well enough that I have never bothered.   As you said  ‘push in and pops out’ slides would also work.

The new style Systainers have a pull built in, but I have no plans to upgrade.

Mine are similar, but with a bit more space around them. I put spacers on the sides and a stop across the back, to keep the systainers in place, attached with 23ga pins. Then I put a taller wall in the back to prevent the "extras" that I store behind them. I have boxes of abrasives behind the sanders, the angle attachment behind the OF1010, a ziplock bag of 6mm Dominos behind the DF500, etc.

How about just add a couple of dominos in the back of the Systainer slide out as a quick stop? A couple of 10x50’s sticking up half way would do the trick. You wouldn’t have to redo the drawer bottom, just pull it out, make your mortises, and drop in the dominos.

A strip of 1/4 inch plywood with one long edge ripped at 45 works well too. Face the angled edge toward the back feet with the bevel down. The back feet on the Systainer will grab it.

Thanks everyone for the feedback. Lots of options so will have to think this through before I do something.

Your can use two dowels on either side toward the rear to catch the hold down clips used for the older systainers.  Might be an easier and faster option than routing the feet holes.

This is how I made mine,  u can easily make a template and cut them out with a router.  I did mine with my Origin
