Maxi Systainer fits the CMS-TS55R module
« on: October 22, 2014, 02:54 PM »
As I do not have this NAINA item nor do I use it I do not know about the perfect fit of this module in the Sys Maxi.....

The Sys Maxi 2 (NAINA) should be great for the CMS-TS module. Again I have no idea what I am talking about.....

My imaginary module storage....





Actually I have to retract the CMS-TS comment. Does NOT fit based on the underside interfering with the recess on both side. Just found out tonight....

Now THAT is cool! I wonder if it was planned, or a lucky coincidence?

Either way, it's pushing me closer to owning a CMS...

In my dreams I thought it would fit so I got the imaginary Sys Maxi to try it out....

A little bit miffed about my Sys Maxi 2 (NAINA as well) not capable to fit the imaginary CMS-TS module..... Might be able to make it work using a metal file....

Just to clear up any confusion (because I certainly had some myself), my understanding from delving into the depths of the forum and a related comment, is that Slartibartfass meant to type "CMS-PS" (instead of "CMS-TS") in the above retraction. While its clear from his photos (and one other's) that the CMS-TS 55 module does in fact nest inside a Maxi 3 (and, it stands to reason, inside a Maxi 2 as well), the CMS-PS (the CMS jigsaw module) does not, at least not without first, "...shav[ing] of[f] a tiny bit of metal on the bottom from the back cross brace on both sides (maybe an eighth of an inch)." [Source]

I wonder why Festool keeps this storage solution such a secret? It's almost as though they don't want to, at the very least, sell a couple of Sys-Maxi's to every CMS GE and TS owner....
