Can you purchase just the Systainer insert for this set?

I am sure you can. You just need to find the part number.
This is one of the long standing issues I have had with Festool. I have never understood why tool inserts are not included in the EKAT system with the tool that fits them. Or at the very least, have a category in for inserts in EKAT.

Sorry, this one slipped off of my radar. No, the inserts cannot be purchased separately for this item because it's a relatively limited availability product.

Kaizen Foam, make your own inserts.

Dang, I had the same question as I wanted to put my own FX Clamping Systainer together and use a SYS MFT Tabletop systainer! Thought they should have used that systainer for the FX Clamping kit in the first place! Perhaps those inserts will become available later.

@ben_r_  This insert works quite well for MFT accessories, not sure of the part number as I bought it a couple of years ago from Festool Aus. This insert was also included in a special dark blue Sys 1  last year to mark 90 years of Festool.

Not a bad idea. Looks like those are available from Lee Valley: http://www.leevalley.com/us/wood/page.aspx?p=68753&cat=1,43326,68749

Or use a SYS 4 TL-SORT/3 for all that stuff, works nicely.

I like the version above if it were still available. I ended up with a Domino systainer and used some Kaizen Foam as was suggested.

This is a standard Tanos part. We keep them in stock (looks like we have the wrong picture here).

I think that @Rustys was enquiring about the Vario2 insert in post-9.

Hey, all!  Sorry for thread necromancy but I assumed keeping it in the same location would be a good idea.

I found that at least one Canadian store had 20+ of these still available but was unable to order it because of the Festool Dealer's agreement which apparently restricts them from selling Festool to other countries.

So... after some initial confusion or maybe unwillingness by some WoodCraft stores and corporate to search other store's stock (or maybe not trained to), WoodCraft of San Carlos was able to find some in stock for me at WoodCraft Seattle which sold me one over the phone!

Considering how helpful the Woodcraft of Seattle rep was, I wish I had them locally!

Seattle still has 10-15 in stock, if anyone's still searching.

So they had the full SYS-MFT FX set in stock? Or just the insert we were looking for? And how much was it?
