I have been wanting to get some type of storage for my festool toys… ahh, I mean tools for ages now and I did not want to pay over 700 bucks for the “Sysport”, I have no problem paying more for their tools because i think they are superior quality and they have a lot of nice features on them the competition cant think of but $740.00 for a cabinet… please. Having recently purchased a TS55 I wanted to try it out and I couldn’t think of something better to christen it on. Nothing fancy, 2 sheets of 5/8” white melamine, 2 open cabs cor systainers and 2 cabs with doors for other storage. I call it my Syscab lol.

Nice solution for some great tools—I agree 100% with your philosophy and analysis.

Very nice set up and practicle, good tools are one thing but what they want for the cabinet is silly. Well done…..
