Oh! What a sweet setup! Makes me almost want more sanders, again!

Very good initiative, nice to see! 😊 Always nice to save space, the stacks of systainers just gets higher and higher... 🤔

So, how did you do that?  Where did you get the insert and lid picture?

That is the insert that comes with the newest (REQ)  ETS 125 (pro5), RTS 400 and DTS 400. It's universal and the slots on the right side are intended for sandpaper.
The ETS and RTS don't come in a sys I anymore.  They all come in a SYS 2.
The top insert comes with all three sanders.  The SYS3 I had lying around.

I've added the other two foam blocks since those photos.   The two upright sanders
bang into each other without them.   Finally, the DTS only fits like that without the edge guard on it.   


Sidenote: Dear Festool, I didn't buy your Centrotec set because I bought the T18
after you moved it from a size one to a size 2 systainer.   I put an attic lid on it,
and filled it and the rest of the wasted space inside of the systainer with centrotec stuffs and a gallon of insert bits.  I carry around an Eric Cartman weight systainer for
a 3lb drill.   Bonkers, I say.

Here is the part number for that insert.
I presume the previous models fit.

Well, I'll be darned.  My Pro5 has that insert and lid card. 

Wonder if Festool was using subliminal marketing with their Pro5 promo?  I have an itch to fill those other two sander slots.

I'm going with Festool was using the bottom line.
The previous models had universal inserts, too, I thought.

The right slots are intended for pads and sandpaper.
Alas, it's a dumb way to store sandpaper.

Ha! Good use of that insert if you have those sanders! Clever thinking!
If at first you don't succeed, redefine success!
