I was a big user of the SYS-DAIRY when I first started doing cabinet installs.  But then I moved on to wholesaler crates (green, naturally), and now the actual Tanos product.

I only posted this because , I teased a couple guys I worked with about it only costing 80$ and they were like. "You're crazy, I would never " etc
So I had to put it here, all in fun right ?

I'm sure some would buy them just for the color

If that was an Ikea product, it'd be called a Möööva.  [big grin]

Cut it twice, measure once and it's still too short

After I got the first one, all I had to do was tell the neighborhood kids that I had a $5 bounty on these, and I had three in just a few days.

One of them even has a mesh bottom, so sawdust and other little bits filter right out.

I won't say how I acquired this , the penalty sounds worse than cutting the tag off a mattress! [eek]

I got myself one of those containers but it would not hold any milk, no matter how I poured it in the container: fast, slow, fast and then slow. Maybe I should have frozen the milk first?

Milk Crates Direct sells to the public if anyone is looking for a quantity.  I purchased half a dozen a few years ago for storage of spray paint cans and other items.  The price is not bad, but I remember the shipping was kind of costly.  They stack real nice, but unfortunately, the green they have available doesn't match Festool!
