Under Out Feed Table Sys Ports
« on: January 01, 2022, 12:45 AM »
I am planning systainer storage under an out feed table I just built for my SawStop.  I could go with either 640mm or 672mm and figured I would go with 672mm.  I might be able squeeze 704mm under the table apron but it would be tight.  Any reason why 672mm is a bad choice or reason I should attempt to squeeze in 704mm?

I have a mix of systainers.  My plan is to group all my saws in one area, routers in another, domino and tenons in another and then an area for drills.  I have a separate sanding station with sanders and abrasive storage already.  My plan is to have four 672mm high sys ports (built in one cabinet) on both sides of my table. 

Happy New Year FOG!

My situation is a bit different than most. I work in a big cabinet shop, so the large machines are shared. The space under the table saws has storage for off-cuts or project parts that are more universal.
I keep my Systainers in cabinets similar to what you are describing, but they are all in a line, instead of wrapping around an outfeed table. My "Sysports" are not portable at all
The point is more about how they are arranged. You mentioned storing them in groups of similar items, but I don't really do it that way. The sanders are all in one column, pretty much right down the middle of the row. Everything else is arranged by convenience. In general, that means the items that are used to most or that have a lot of small parts are near the top. The TS55 is an exception. It is near the bottom of one column, even though it gets used very frequently. It is on the end nearest the cutting station and as a large tool that gets drawn out of a deep Systainer, it is easier down low. It sort of works out that they stack largest to smallest. The CSX, clamping elements/dogs, PS420 and router bit case are at the top. The TS55, TS75, and OF1400 are at the bottom. The OF1010, Domino, etc run through the middle.
I don't "go get" things, they are all right behind me as I stand at the assembly table, used as needed and put right back away. This is the beauty of the system as it works for me, they are arranged by how I use them, rather than what they are. Mine were built on the 32mm spacing and 5 sizes of the T-loc generation though and taller than most, way too tall for an outfeed table.
Although I am in a static/stationary situation, if I need to, they can be stacked up on the CT26 and taken anywhere.
It's just a different way of storage and way of use that might help someone.

@Crazyraceguy thanks for sharing how you arrange your systainers.  Now that you explain how you do it, it does make more sense than arranging by type of tool.  It is definitely something I will use when setting up mine even though mine will be stored in sysports under the table.  Wall space is mostly consumed in my shop.

Thanks again.

It's not against a wall, though it certainly could be. It's out in the open floor, about 40 feet from the nearest wall. The pic in my profile is actually part of the back side. Behind the cabinets themselves is a plywood wall, that is basically a backstop, but I use the back side too. It's only about 5 feet high for most of the run and jumps up to about 9 feet where the clamps and rails hang. The whole thing is about 16 feet long from the black toolbox to the CT on the other end. Space is never an issue.
I have had a few opportunities to build/rebuild, add to, and rearrange it all. Gaining space has had something to do with it too.
Glad I could help or at least give an alternate view. I sure need to put some fronts on those drawers, it's been 2 years.
