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....

Since the CMS-TS 75 is NAINA I had a friend of mine bring one from the UK. I already had the CMS-GE for my routers, so the CMS-75 TS was perfect for a portable table saw. To store the additional top I used a Maxi Systainer and the only modifications necessary were to cut several tabs off either side of the Maxi Systainer. In addition foam pads were used in the lid to keep the table secure.

So, @dwillis, just to confirm, that's a Maxi 3 (and not a Maxi 2) correct?

As an aside, I really appreciate your photos showing a great storage solution for the CMS TS 75 module. Thanks! :)

I did something similar that was posted a while ago, used Kaizen foam. Has work out brilliantly when taking to site, also did it with the router set up.

Ordewin- I'm not sure if it's a 2 or 3. How do you tell the difference? The Systainer is 8" high. I'm going to follow your lead and put in a foam insert to hold the loose items.

@dwillis - Here's a shot of the two sizes, one on top of another:

And, from the Tanos website, their respective dimensions:

Looks like it's a Maxi Systainer II. Good to know because I'll need another one for the router table and assorted parts. Too bad the model number isn't molded into the case.

@dwillis - Wait, you mean it's a Maxi III, right? If yours measures ~8" tall then, according to the following size chart:



...it's a Maxi III (which stands 210mm tall). Please verify.

The tall one out of the two is ~8.5" high (and 6-1/4"wish for the smaller one).

@Ordewin

Looks good with the foam inserts. Which systainers did you use for the saw and router inserts ?

157.5mm tall: sys maxi 2 - 492582

210mm tall: sys maxi - 490701
