Festool and Tanos Systainers / Re: TSO Systainer arrived!

Thank you @gunnyr for the shoutout.  Wow!  Your truck is nicely organized, cool!

We can special order certain colors.  The caveat right now though is it needs to be in bulk quantity.  I'm pecking away at getting some different colors in stock.  Slowly growing the business before I make a larger commitment.

LOL - was interested in this until I saw the cost was nearly as much as the cheaper CT vacuums.   [eek]

I have not tried that and I agree that having no positive attachment method between the main unit and the base is a pity.

Good point, Greg. Although at AU$49-ish, it's a pricey addition. Doesn't look too hard to 3D print, so I may do that instead

Back in the 90'ties when I was still working in my father's spray shop we had a furniture factory next door who exclusively worked with MDF and we had to spray all their work. Can't remember which paint we always used, but it was a high solid water based paint.

The Carvex does „blow“ dust away from the cut line.
Even if it is not mentioned in the specs.

I can try and share a quick video tonight, if that helps.

I have a cordless 420, barrel grip.

Do any of the festool cordless jigsaws have blowers to get the dust off the cut line?
Looking for a new jigsaw with that feature, I think one of the makita chordless has one(not sure how well it works) but it’s tbe D style handle and I kind of feel like newer lower handle styles are better?

Festool and Tanos Systainers / Re: Systainer Design Weak Point ??
« Last post by Don T on Today at 01:08 AM »
It is very strange since this is not the first time blue systainers have been made. Several years ago the FOG gainers were made in blue. And more recently the anniversary systainer was also blue. Maybe just a bad batch due to improper temperatures as already noted.

Possibly the blue color is causing flow problems and there  is a  knit line that is weak.  The knit line (where 2 flows of molten plastic meet) will always be present, perhaps the blue color is harder to melt and is flowing colder causing a weak knit line. Just a speculation.

Spoken like a guy who’s had injection molding experience.  [big grin]   [big grin]

As Vijay explains, you’ll always have knit lines around cored holes because the plastic is forced to race around each side of the core pin and then once the 2 fronts of plastic reach one another, there has to be enough residual heat in the mold and in the melt to one again become a homogeneous material, otherwise weak knit lines can be the result.

Maybe they’re running the mold at a lower temp than normal because of possible color degradation?

Seems strange that suddenly on just blue Systainers these hinge pin hole issues raise their heads.

I’ll check my new “blues” tomorrow and see if I have any issues.
