I was looking at the Tanos handles but went the other way. The ribbed handle to me looks better, but the Tanos handles do look like they would fell better in the hand.[doh]



Yup  they Feel much better planning on changing out most of my heavy kits with them in the spring.

Hi guys, I updated the FOGtainer just a bit. I added the Tanos handle ( i could'nt find any detailed pictures of it so im not sure how accurate the model is ). Also added the barrel lock and got ride of the latch locks.

Very nice job on the renderings! I really like the dark blue mini sys. I'm not a fan of the green one, Festool came out with one for the new sanding block, it's the ugliest thing ever.

Peter, thanks for the link, I had no idea some many colors were stock. 
Brice, it may be ugly, but it is certainly possible to locate it quickly.  And this is a good quality to have in a first aid box: http://festoolownersgroup.com/festool-wish-list/systainer-first-aid-box/. 

I know this well because I needed a bandaid quickly in my messy woodworking shed yesterday and I spotted the box in about 3 seconds.
Cheers,

I tried model the barrel lock a while back but it makes the systainer look like a money box [tongue] and i would think that when you carried it around it might dig into your legs or anything else you happen to walk to close to.
I can confirm that the Tanos handles feal better in the hand.  Much better.

Well at the moment im trying to catch up on work that has fallen a bit behind, but as soon as i have some down time i must get this project up and running, Im sick and tired of having to move my systainer all over the place now [doh]

Did anybody ever thought of a complete transparant lid/cover?

Must be spectacular to see the nice Festool machines in their Systainers.

May be Waynelang can do some renderings of it?

Hi guys,

I finally had some down time the last to days so i got stuck into knocking up my sysport. As usual i didnt have time to take photos of the construction process.
Its a very simple design and i didnt get to involved in miner details like adding fancy fronts to the pullouts, but maybe when i get some more time i will make some, but for now
i can do without the fronts.

Please excuse the stat of some of the systainers, when i was working for a boss some of the guys thought it would be ok to use my tools while i was
sick in hospital for a few months. But im sure that when we get some FOGtainers in i will be replacing my festool systainers. Or at least the ugly ones.
 [dead horse]



The full extension runners give me plenty room to get into the systainers.



I cant remember who on the forum used dowels for there sysport, but i liked the idea so i used it myself. And it works really well.

There's a funny line in the "Wayne's World" movie that goes something like "I don't even have a gun, let alone many guns to justify a gun rack". 

I feel the same way about systainers.  I don't own enough of them to justify a sysport.  But I am saving for some FOGtainers...

Great work as always Wayne!

I thought they were tool cases, not display cases. But nice work on the sysports, but the colour ........

Indeed, not my taste.  [smile] I always prefer light colours, makes everything look more spacious. But everybody to his own. I'm sure you'll enjoy your sysports a lot after all the work you put in them.

Very nice Wayne.  Some acetone will cleanup those Systainers (the sharpie marker).  You need some new labels!

PM me if you're interested in some Photoshop templates you could print off.

Nooooooo!!!!!!!! [eek]

Don't use acetone on systainers, it will disolve the plastic. Even if you use it sparingly, it will soften the surface.

Wood_Junkie, have you actually tried this? If so, did it not cause any problems?

It will take the sharpie off, use very little and be quick about it.  Don't pour it on it, bad idea.

Yeah, sorry.  To be clear, use a Q-tip or cotton ball or something.  A quick swipe should take off Sharpie (pretty much any permanent marker) writing.
No, I have not done this on any Systainers-- I just know it'll take off "permanent" marker.

There's a product called wax& grease remover used in the automotive industry. Won't hurt plastic what so ever. I don't know if it will remove sharpie but it removes everything else w/o damage to plastic, paint, upholstery and just about anything else. Great for disolving contact cement too. I buy it by the gallons.

I have wax and grease remover in my garage, I have a sharpie and a few systainers, I will see what happens.

My guess is, it won't take it off.

Wayne, you make us South Africans proud boy!!! You have talent sir. I love your sysport design (the very first pic you posted) I think I'm gonna borrow it if you don't mind?
I promise to post pics of the finished job. Might not be as big, but will definitely be as beautiful.

Good job

Great job on the design - I really like the black contrast with the Systainers - true to your original concept!

I was the one that posted the dowel idea for holding them in place on a set I built some time back.  Saves wood and space, and ultimately weight for moving them around.

Thanks for sharing.

Try some Isopropyl Alcohol to remove the Sharpie's.
It should take the marks it right off without harming the plastic.

Hi Neil

Your dowel design is the best ive seen so far on a sysport, like you said it saves wood and works like a dream..........thanks for not copywriting it  [tongue]
