online label making tool for sortainers
« on: March 21, 2011, 06:55 AM »
Simple and for the really lazy ones among us... and I guess I just revealed I'm one of those  [big grin]
I've seen threads here at fog where people used a label maker but wouldn't software from Festools website make life with sortainers a little easier ?!
For the T-locs all is sorted, now hopefully the sortainers are following.

Label Makers can write the label to a specific length and size the font to fit. And you only have to trim to length.

What would you do with your computer that could be easier?

Mauri,

Are you referring to this page?  http://www.festool.com/EN/Service/systainer-labels/Pages/Festool-Systainer-labels.

I think Shane (Shaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaane!) is working on something similar for the US site.

I could be wrong, but I don't think that there is a Festool application for Sortainers - just Systainers.

Indeed, there is an application for the T-loc systainers (service from the festool website) but not for the sortainers and I thought why not make it available for all sys-sor tainers that apply for labels.

uspcompact,
I can't open your link but here a link from the Dutch festool site:

Hi guys,
Would a PDF file help?
I adjusted the margins and table sizes and I'm hoping to stick the thicker card labels to a piece of A4 and print straight onto the supplied label layout.
I have filled in what i have used this layout for; 8# is and 8 gauge screw, 12p is a 12mm pan-head screw, and the rest are fairly obvious.
Hope it helps.

I use a 1/2" label in my p-touch label maker.  They slide perfectly into the plastic holder on the drawers..
