I know someone must have this for sale.
I am not able to find this on the web?

I have two MFT tables and wish to build some carts to hold the tables with Systainer storage. I plan on using the Festool pull out holders.

If you know where I can get these detail plans please respond

Thanks
Rick

I'm coming up with a design for my table using Sketchup, are you able to learn that program? Its a 3d program. There is a learning curve, and its' not for everyone. But being able to come up with plans in 3d then print them out is a big help.

There are a bunch of threads for ideas.  One is as follows:
http://festoolownersgroup.com/member-projects/give-me-an-excuse-to-come-up-with-version-2-for-this-mft-sysport/60/
I did something along those lines and did the design in Sketchup.  It is basically a bottom and top the same size as the MFT, and then some dividers, all using 3/4" baltic birch and assembled using Dominos (although Kreg pocket screws might be quicker).  I attached some wheels and a cleat on each corner of the top to hold the MFT in place.  Did it so that it is 36" tall overall, to match the height of my router table.
It has been a while since I tried posting a photo, but here goes.

You should check my dimensions.  The spaces on the side compartments are 427mm wide, and that is so it will hold AZ drawers for the Systainers.  There is a pdf on the Festoolusa website that shows the exact dimensions required for the AZ drawers.  I am not sure about the depth, as I ended up just putting shelves in my cart and made a separate unit to hold my systainers.
Hope this helps.
