Not sure if my PM went through, but I would be interested in a closed SYS1 and a closed SYS2.

I've identified the supplier for the 25mm baltic birch panels, and learned they can even special-order panels up to 40mm thick! Those weigh in at 141 lbs. per 5x5' sheet!

At the recommendation of General Finishes, I'm changed the finish to their Milk Paint, tinted RAL 6018, rather than my original plan to use their Pigmented Poly, which they worried could become too thin with this specific color. I've sprayed white milk paint before and it's beautiful, so I have total confidence this is going to look great.

If you're on the pre-order list, you should have received the Paypal invoice via email by now. If you haven't seen an invoice from me (Ryan's Pursuits LLC), it's likely because I don't have your email address. Please PM or email me your email address, and I'll get your invoice out the door.

I could use the SYS3 configuration today, but would like to potentially expand to a SYS4 config in the future.  Given the possibility that this may be a one-time, limited offer, if I order the SYS4 config today, can I reconfigure the purchased components now to use two decks in a SYS3 container and store the 3rd deck for use in a SYS4 later on?

Would I need to order any additional parts?  e.g. - handles, risers, etc.?

Thanks, Mark

Mark, the only difference between the SYS3 and SYS4 configuration is the addition of a third deck (medium risers and handle). So, absolutely, you can order a SYS4 and simply store the additional deck until you've got the SYS4 systainer. If that sounds good, send me a PM and I'll get you on the pre-order list for a SYS4 Recommended Kit. Thanks!

Would be kind of neat to have a few of them through drilled to accept Forstener bits, maybe? IDK ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
 
Could Forsteners fit as is?

This is incredibly awesome btw.

Thanks - I believe most forstners have a 3/8" shank so, unfortunately, they won't fit in these holes. Not tightly, at least.

02-09-2017 Production Update

Had a good meeting at a local CNC/woodworking meetup. Got some great feedback from pro woodworkers and, as a result, will be making one design modification: I'll be increasing the thickness of the platforms by 5mm, using 30mm thick baltic birch plywood rather than 25mm stock. This change is necessary to give the dual-shank shouldered holes more depth, which will make your bits more secure/stable when they're inserted--especially when you're on the move.

This design change won't impact the bit headroom/capacity or cost. There will be a negligible increase in weight (about 1/2 lb per deck).

How about one full deck for 1/2", and another split equally between 1/4" and 8mm?  Possible?   [unsure]

I'm going to be ordering one of these kits. They look great. I also wonder if there would be interest in a deck cut for the drawer in a SYS-Combi. I have my routers in these and use the drawers for bits. Perhaps the original deck plan could be cut to fit the drawer?

Shoot me a PM with an image that shows how you're storing your router bits in the SYS-Combi and I'll see if I can dream up any ideas.

I couldn't figure out how to attach an image to a PM so I'll leave this here. Modified a foam systainer insert to fit the SYS-Combi. I was wondering if one of your closed decks could be modified to fit as well.

Hello

I do not see a place to store the necessary wrenches used to change the bits or a place to store the necessary nuts used to lock the  bits in the router motor spindle.

Rick - If you're using the traditional flat router wrench, you should have enough room on the sides or front/back to stow the wrench. I've intentionally designed the inserts to *not* be super tight, since my prototyping has found that it can make the inserts tough to remove, especially on deeper systainers. As for the nuts you reference, do you mean collets? Those should be small enough to fit in the pockets of the open deck at the top of your SYS3 insert assembly. Thanks! Ryan

PM sent for one SYS3 variant.

My tool budget this quarter has been dominated by systainers!  [eek]
