I have made a file for the inside base of systainers to make custom tool inserts etc.

I searched the web and found some but they were not a good fit so I drew my own in Vcarve pro.
I put it on thingiverse as DXF and SVG, link here Systainer T loc insert base by osmithcarpentry
for some reason it wouldn`t upload the native vectric file but I can send it if anyone wants it.
I realise its a bit of a niche thing but I needed one so maybe someone else will.

Edit Vectric file now on thingiverse too.

Cheers

Ollie

Thanks for this.
I've tried to use templates from the internet to do the same with mini systainers. The ones out there don't fit the current systainers so I ended up marking and cutting by hand.
Good of you to share your work for the full size cases.

No problem, I was surprised I couldn't find a good one already, I wonder if it would scale to fit the mini ones or if they are different entirely. I might get round to doing one for those.

Have you tried the "paper and pencil" system (version HB) ? :unsure:

They are actually a slightly awkward shape, Jacob, so if someone has put up an accurate drawing that you can download, print-out and use as a template (maybe by cutting it out with a pair of scissors?) then "fair play" to him I say

I have and I made my initial hand tool insert by hand about 10 years ago.
Now I can cut a base in less than a minute which is spot on and requires no messing about.
Also now the outline is done it will be easy to modify for specific jobs.
This will save people a lot of time to do more fun woodworking jobs.

Quick update, I made this as a test, just quickly out of random bits (dont look closely at it ! )

Just a note that this systainer is different at the back to the festool ones, it is a fein version.

Also have uploaded dimensioned drawing to thingiverse for non CNC methods.

This is what I like about this site. Ollie has spent time and effort producing this file and has made it freely available plus something for non cnc users.
