Does someone know if the lids for the Sys-Storage Box will fit the Sys-Toolbox 2 ?

http://www.leevalley.com/us/Festool/page.aspx?p=70732&cat=5,105,71886

The clear lids? Not sure of the physical size would fit , it might,  I have both and can check when I go to the shop. But you would need to come up with some type of hinge / attachment even if they would fit. But that could be worth exploring for added versatility. Though if you really needed larger closed space , a regular Systainer can do that job.

Seth

It looks doable. But would take some work. A vertical slot needs to be cut in each corner (easy), Some sort of screw or rod added to mount the lid.  The center would still have quite a bit of open space under the handle. I did not take any measurements.

Seth

Thanks Seth for checking that. I would like to use the toolbox but have a lid to keep the dust (or most of it) out of my hand tools. I may give this a try.

I didn't take any measurements and certainty of success is not guaranteed. If you try it post it!

Lol that's my fault that one. I know the Insane Dane and while chatting one day I said why didn't he attempt a full size systainer version of that micro sys tank that we had seen.

Being completely mad he loves a challenge and this was the resulting video.

Sadly he's not having a good start to 2019 as just the other week some scumbag broke into his van a stole a big chunk of his Festools :-(

Yes i cut the Kaizen foam to fit it.  I still have the bulky hard case that came with it that doesn’t stack or store well.  I made the labels and printed them and laminated them.

Two sets of Wera nut drivers (metric and Imperial) on FastCap Kaizen foam bed. Blocks of Kaizen foam glued to the bed make up the dividers that hold the nut drivers in place.

That look pretty cool.  Good idea gluing the dividers.

My version of a `quick and dirty` SYS-air.

The first pic is just the unit with the lid open showing guns & hose. Usually there is a bottle of glue in there as well.

Second pic is a more unobstructed view. It also shows the `divit` where the hose and the power cord lead out with the ability to close the lid. That divit was due to a mishap on the jobsite which later proved to be fortunate.

The third pic shows the modification to the compressor to allow it to sit on its 4 feet. The modification was to remove about 1 to 1 1/2 inches of tubing from the frame. I can't remember for sure, but I think I also turned the motor 180 laterally on it's mounts so the starter capacitor would clear the tank. Unmodified is still fit in the systainer, but rather sloppily and as a result made the unit made a ton of noise.

This is just a 1 gallon Senco compressor i picked up at the cheapo-depot as my prior systainer version had blown it's reeds with replacements no longer available.

For those wondering:
Yes, I can and generally do, run this with the lid closed. Helps keep the crud out of the box and makes it quieter. It has only popped the thermal one time. My guy was running speed base on a 90 degree day with the lid closed. Nothing but nailing, everything had been pre-cut and dry fitted already. in a systainer or out of one, this little compressor was never intended to run a 15 gauge gun at that production level as it only 30% duty cycle if I remember correctly. He thought he burned it up but it was just the thermal breaker. He admitted that the unit hd not been keeping up with him. And yes, I/we have more appropriate compressors for that.

Here is my solution for my Sys Toolbox. This has worked pretty well for me. It may not be what you want but it may give someone some inspiration to help solve their tool storage issues. I use mine in the shop but have taken it to the job site a few times. I simply took an old bucket organizer I had from Home Depot, if I remember correctly, I think I paid about $7. I cut it apart and used pop rivets to attach it. I may have used a few small bolts (10-32) to reinforce it. I have inside loops for tools and a lot of pockets. It can be removed if I ever decide I don't like it or need it anymore but I have been using it for about 2 years and it is quite handy. I can move it to where I am working and have all my most used tools within easy reach.
I am not young enough to know everything!

This is not a systainer post directly. I was modifying one of my systainers and I found this file underneath the plastic insert. Most likely from packing. Kind of neat for festool swag. The only thing I have gotten from Festool for free.  [big grin]

Nice thread guys, Fingerlicking and very OCD friendly.
I made this insert for my beloved OF 1010.
Plywood and 4mm cork.
Fits snugly and secure.
The router is now laying correctly (rather than reversed).
Next time I will use thinner plywood.
For the rest I'm very happy.
Of course, this is 1% necessary and 99% fun.
