Sysport with Locking Door
« on: April 17, 2017, 03:31 PM »
Has somebody put together a sysport using the Festool Systainer Drawers that has a locking door? While I like the lookof systainers, these will be in a detached garage and I don't want to tempt fate when the door is open.
I'm thinking the hinges would block the movement of the systainers /drawers.

i don't know about the sys drawers, but using regular drawer slides, you would have a 1/2" clearance.  After drilling the cup hole for the hinge you should have no interference.  We have several pull out drawers in our kitchen and the slides and hinges don't interfere with each other.

I need to check the sysdrawer clearance. I think worst case I can add a filler on the hinge side of the cabinet inside that the slides attach to which will provide clearance for the drawers to avoid the hinges.

I built a workstation with sys-az drawers last year. I went out and measured the clearance on the sides between the systainers and the cabinet edges, 5/8" or 16mm consistently.

You 'could' use one of theses 6'x3' steel "locking" file cabinets...I have a few in one, and it does have enough room for (1/2"on each side) glides...with doors full open.
There are no mistakes....just new designs.
