Sortainer/Systainer Organization
« on: March 02, 2018, 03:59 PM »
I've been spending some time (probably way too much time) on getting organized using Sortainers and Systainers.  I know there are quite a few threads on the subject, but I'm hoping this will inspire some people. Post how you use yours!

I can only suggest to add a few of these to your first aid kit, in the hope of never needing them. These can shut down a full limb should it get leaky (as some parts at the end are missing, as a graphic example), having one of these at (the still intact) hand then can be the difference between life and death.

It's a good idea to inform yourself upfront on how to use them (even when it means to waste one on training), they can be applied to full effect one handed if one knows how to do it right.

More organization!  I combined a TXS and a CXS drill into one Sys 2.  Check it out.

I picked up a Sys 2 Combi for my Rotex 90.  Works great and I freed up a couple of Systainers for other tools.

Here's a T18 in a Sys2 Combi complete with "centrotec" modified drills in the attic and some convenient items below.  That dust collection attachment in the drawer is more handy that I expected it to be.

Looks great Dick.  I also just now realized those dividers in the attic lid are moveable.   [embarassed]

Also, what's in the miniature T-loc?

The mini T-loc was a gift from the 2016 Roadshow truck [big grin] and houses my trusty Victorinox Swiss Army knife.  If I ever need more room for bits/drivers I can just change the contents.

Nice thread here!
If the SYS-Combis weren’t so expensive, I‘d have a lot more. I really like what the drawer allows as additional storage...

I have one for a drill (pic shows CXS, but will house a bigger drill soon...) also with the drill-suction cup and drills..

I have another for the OF1010. There it shines with cutter storage and an easier place to store the wrench and rods etc..

I‘ll post an update next week, with more recent shots.
These ones are quite old.

I couldn't agree more.  The drawers make the systainer infinitely more useful.  I was originally thinking about getting a storage systainer for my RO90 abrasives, but I like what Coho10 did better.  So it looks like there is at least one more Sys Combi in my future.

Not to derail the thread, but updating tools with Combi's as standard issue where appropriate would be an easy update that sure would make the price increases more palatable.

Nice set up Dick.

   That drill DC is very handy. I especially like it when drilling onto drywall.

   Is the Victorinox the Festool logo one?  [smile]

Thanks much.   That DC also worked great when installing grab bars in a tiled shower through tiles and a mortar base.  I didn't even have to vacuum the floor.  Sadly, that Victorinox isn't the Festool logo knife, just typical bright red one and incredibly well made.

I use a Sys2 to hold my sandpaper.  A simple grid for each of three sizes of paper with an area for each grit.

Your radio swap is very cool. If you have more photos of that and how you did it, please share. That with a charger in it is pretty much what I have in mind to build.
