I needed shelving that was mobile in my garage. Got the basic idea off the Kreg site. It has turned out to be a good item for my shop.

Looks great. All your systainers will look nice on it.

Good job!
I have a small shop and today I don’t know how I could use it, before I had set nearly everything on casters.

Rolling storage rocks. Most shops just have one bench, assembly table, gluing station…..... Being able to roll over a piece like this or 3 with the tools, clamps, items like glue, sandpaper, that you need to prep, and finish with. It just saves you 10,000 steps running around to get this or that, 10,000 steps has to be a significant amount of wasted shop time.

Neat solution mdd’. Love the Festool integration… couldn’t avoid those green/grey systainers lurking in the shadows.

My only concern might be the size of those casters… I used to go for small ones but since I moved, my workshop transformed from timber flooring to cracked concrete and it got cluttered, I found that even the smallest woodchip on the floor brought my mobiles to a gut wrenching stop. Unless the footprint is an issue, which seem to play funny buggers with the centre of gravity, I recommend opting for 5” and no less than 4”... just my .002 shekels worth…

Would love to see some happy snaps after hose systainers paid the rent and shifted in…
