Hmm, good idea with the Kreg jig. Do you have anything inside of the Systainer to organize the jig and related supplies? Like the boxes from the SYS 1 box, which can be purchased separately?

Not yet, I still concentrating on setting my shop up. Hanging up shelving brackets, Insulating the floor for the winter and dry walling the ceiling so I wont lose alot of heat in the winter.
Another FOG member has helped me tremendously since Ive been here.

Hes turning into my closest friend here.

 I do have some Kaizen foam that I used in other systainers for shipping my stuff over.

That may work

I using it for my Kreg Jig.

Makes a great clamping surface for pocket holeing.

As SANCHO used to say, we want pictures!  ;)

I am disappointed that the Zobo Centrotec combo is only offered in the metric version. Since the last Zobo set was metric, it would have been nice to have the Imperial Zobo set offered as part of the combo. Buying the Basic Centrotec and Imperial Zobo separately will cost $80 more than the combo if I did my math right.

Ok, so I've had a first hand look at the highly debated SysLite 4-Pack Systainer. Here's what I have to say about it. It looks black. No doubt about it. However, you can see in the interior where the plastic is definitely made from blue dye. But there's so much dark, dark blue that it appears black.

In very bright light, I suspect it would appear more blue. Maybe if you set up all four SysLite pointed at it.  [smile]

There ya have it.

I see that Festool has a new model track saw that's available in Germany.  It looks a lot like the Mafell 55MT. I wonder if they added some of the same features with the same beefed-up motor?  Also, I hope that they release the vacumm clamping system, although I've been told that it only really works well if the board is sanded smoothly...wouldn't know. Also, it would be nice to have their portable drill press attachment.

No new track saw unless you're just seeing a Protool saw that's been rebadged in green and labeled Festool, which might be the case. How about a link?

Shane, while I was there, Festool Germany has two new planers that look like Mafell clones - the PL 245 and the PL 205...
  Here's the link you requested for the new track saw:

Are any of the centrotec kits worth it for a hobbyist?

I'm a hobbyist and I have the previous version.  I use it all the time...  Hard to beat the convenience and the variety in the kit.

Plus one for the drill press
Sold my tools but kept a few Fes-tools...just in case.

Shane,

Here's a screen-grab from that first video for the midi systainer:



Surely that's wrong? How can the midi be compatible with classic systainers or sortainers? Where do the classic latches connect? I haven't got a midi systainer so can't be 100% certain, but I can't see how you could connect this to anything other than a T-loc.
Festoolian since February 2006

TS55R EBQ saw - CTL26 - CTL Mini - OF1400EBQ router - KS120 Kapex SCMS - ETS150/3 sander - RO90 sander - DF500 Domino - PDC18/4 drill - PSC420 jigsaw - OFK500 trimmer

Wish list (in no particular order!): Anything not listed above....

On the USA site it says "Fully integrates with the T-Loc" and "Integrates with the classics"

I take that to mean, you can lock and go with the T-loc, and stack proper with the classics...

People, I just want to say, you know, can we all get along? Can we get along?

I have the Tanos midi. You can put a regular T loc on a classic systainer and then you can attach a T loc midi on top of the regular T loc.

JRB, thanks for the catch. You are correct that it's not compatible with Classics or sortainers. I usually watch these before posting and didn't this time. It's been corrected in the video.
