Just for fun to look into the toolboxes of the fellow systainer fan.

A few years ago, I rigged up a Sys 5 classic to use for transporting a mixture of hand tools etc.  I borrowed ideas from previous FOG poster's. Although I don't make a habit of it, the last time it was full, it weighed 40 lbs.

Also rigged up a Midi with my drill/reciprocating saw stuff a few years ago. I added a metal plate and adhesive magnet strips to the lid (inside) for saw blades. The adhesive didn't hold up, so I abandoned that idea.

I keep my small nailers in a Sys3:


I put my Carvex and Milwaukee M12 Jigsaws in a Sys2 with an attic lid.  I keep a Collins Coping foot and a coping saw in the box as well:


Festool is NOT the only premium price tool but is one of the few that include a rigid box to protect them.  I got and anthracite Sys1 on sale from Woodcraft last year to keep my True Position Cabinet Hardware install jig in.  The jig comes in a cardboard box!  You can buy a goofy blow molded case for it for something like $30.  I like being able to stack, store, and transport everything in a standardized way.


I upgraded from a 5 gal bucket to a SYS-ToolBox SYS-TB-2, the great thing about it is that it stacks with the rest of my tools and is easy to move around the job site on the top of my Sys-Roll.

Jeff

@Mortiser, @PeterJJames13 is correct!  It is an Occidental 5057 Pocket Caddy.  I got it from Amazon.  The neat thing about it is that it has a snap so you can put it on your belt without removing your belt OR you can slide the back flap of the pouch in your back pocket for the quick jobs.

Wanted to organize my little apartment toolbox and glued an elastic band around the edge to allow for storage other than "chuck it into one of the two compartments". It's more flexible than custom plywood inserts if not nearly as attractive, does the job, though. This approach would work better in the black Tanos version of the toolbox.

That looks super nice. Did you do the cutouts in the yourself or did you order it custom made?

I wondered if the CMS OF stuff could fit in a Systainer Midi, but I guess not. How space do you have left over on the sides of the biggest part? I transported my CMS OF stuff in a banana box recently... and I didn't like that.

I used Kaizen foam in all three Systainers. All of the SYS OF will fit in a Maxi only, you need to separate the fence which is dead easy to do and you need to break down the guard as well, that take a minute or so to put together but it has reall saved damaging the kit or losing parts when you are on a job

There is nothing wrong with your router bit organizer as far as I am concerned. I wanted one. Only problem was there weren't enough people interested to make it economical to produce by CNC as I remember.

There was no fail on your part is my point, and I don't think of it in that way. It is a well thought out design that makes excellent use of space available and is expandable to whatever Systainer you wish to use.

Maybe in place using CNC the pieces could be cast in plastic. Think about selling the idea to Rockler or FastCap or someone else. Take the money and spin it into your next great idea. I have no doubt you have a few more you are wanting to try.
