Festool stack
« on: January 12, 2015, 12:40 PM »
Hi All,

This is my "stack of Festool."  It's not as glorious as some, but it is the tools I use most often.

OF200 Router, RO-125 sander, and Domino 500 are the tools.
Router bits, sand paper, and Domino's are the 3 accessory systainers.

On top is an old brief case repurposed with foam to hold some squares, and other precision measuring tools.

Later,

edg



RO-125, model 2000 router, Domino 500, mini dust extractor.  Various bits & accessories & systainers.

I've added a few items since this was taken but this is at the limit without it being tied to a larger structure.

I've got a couple of midis and mobile bases but didn't throw those in. I just took the photo and it's snowing out. Now....my back hurts  [mad]

Chris,
I don't know what's more amazing.  The height of that stack or the fact that you actually went through all the trouble of stacking them in the snow!  LOL!  You've been busy amassing some green stuff.

Chris, I think the Mirka Systainer near the top is cheating since this is supposed to be Festool stacks.  [tongue]

I have 56 systainers now (not all Festools) but don't have a ladder tall enough to stack...maybe a high lift?

Yeah. Thanks. Where were you for this stupid picture?!?!?!?!?!? I forgot I had a couple of Systainers upstairs for a bedroom remodel. Then I remembered "oh...get the Dominos!" ;)

What is the safe working height limit for a stack of systainers?  I haven't seen that in the specs.

Thanks,  My current ladder only goes to 16 feet but if I put it on top of my trailer I should be able to 23 feet.  Only about 17 or 18 feet to go.

Sam (PA Floor Guy) asked me to share his stack. So, here it is. He says he's added 4 more since this photo was taken. Nice.

Wow!

They really didn't make it that tall until recently.  Looks like until just a few years ago they only achieved about 7 feet...And then things really took off!

I just bought two Cooltainers from Uncle Bob as the price was down. I wasn't going to buy them but hey....they're cool. I will use the as tool storage but plus two Sys4's for my pile. I'm also picking up the OF1010 in the next week or two for my shop....so + another :)

Yeah, the photo I had readily available was circa 2011. I posted about our new bookcase class earlier and you can see it in the background with (mostly) T-LOCs.

Most folks start with a stack of one, and that's nothing to be ashamed of. We appreciate those who have a single Systainer just as much as those with a SysTower.

More like tribbles, me thinks? Dang things seem to birth others on their own. Can't quite figure out how they got my cc number though?

Hey - I think I figured it out. I think the green color that Festool uses is hypnotically suggestive and causes one to unconsciously loose control of their ability to say 'NO' to more green tools or systainers. What do you think?

So technically the Tanos systainers have a Bosch plunge colt router and a Bosch IDH with CXS but all the systainers have Festool product in them. And the stack will get a Sys2 bigger on Thursday when my new T18 gets here  [big grin]
