How is that wood screwed on? Great idea!

There's pre-formed holes on the underside of the lid. A #10 seems to work fine. I used some cpu fan screws (basically a blunt #10). Thanks

It's easy. Festool have a label maker program but it's not very good at doing the labels custom designs. I just used photoshop and laminate the print out from photo paper.

On there website they have the program? I'm sure just for there tools though?

On photo shop I guess you just make it and shrink it down to size ?

You glue it on or slip it in the slot?

I made some templates for photoshop where I just add the pictures of tools and the name. Then print out what size I need for what box size. Laminate them and use the double sided thin tape to hold them

This is my drill kit. I've built in a led light in the lid for those dark rooms. It's not neat and tidy but it has everything I need including a right angle drill attachment. It runs off my spare 18v makita battery.

Re: THE OFFICIAL Contractor Talk Systainer/sortainer Set-up Thread


Just wanted to show my new dividers, figure someone else might benefit from it.

I just took some 3/16" abs sheet and half lapped them together. Dries quick and can put a dab of abs glue to bond it to the systainer. Seems a bit easer to work with/more durable than birch ply IMO.

Being a First year carpender , I can't necessarily afford a systanier but I do have a Stanley Top Edge tool box with dividers which is good enough for me.

Where do you get the systainers with “attic lids”? I can’t seem to find them.

I get them at woodcraft. The last few I bought were only $80. I see they are now $88. I guess that's how they afford to keep having the 25% off systainer sales.
