    Ran across this on TalkFestool. Interesting ideas that combine racks and work surfaces. What do you think?

    thats a pretty interesting line of boxes they have, i like the work surface idea. Didn’t someone here do that to their lboxxes. ?

    I like the work surface option also and the ability to keep adding to the stack.

    I recall seeing pictures of a work surface with cutouts to clip on top of a stack of L-BOXX’s. Doesn’t give you the ability to add to it though.

    Anybody with a link? Also I know there is a tray for the L-Boxxes but for some reason NAINA. Anybody find one on eBay or via a search from a place in Europe? I have had no luck.

    I think this basic system was in around $1200BP!!

    Nice but CRAZY expensive.

    Thanks for sharing. That is a really neat way to stay organized in the shop or on the go. It seems much more functional than a traditional red tool box on wheels. I especially like the use of Bosch drill on page 25. Too many companies use old yellow for their tools in pictures.

    Well after owning the L-BOXXes for a while I was dead set on buying Festool from now on. But this might have restored my interest in Sortmo.

    those are really sharp.. adds way more options to their arsenal.

    its cool to see that they are now making them available to different brands.. that makes things more universal for tradesman with different brands of tools

    interesting to see that they now have the mftc table top availbable now.. i wonder what the price point is on them compared to the festool

    heres a tip, dont fart in a space suit

    According to comments on the other site, it’s a pricey system.
    A few people also noted similarities in some of the products with this diy systainer/work table:

    It’s a slick design.

    What is it that you don’t like about the L-box system that is better in the Festool system?

    I really like my boxes. They have stood up to quite a bit if abuse and still manage to look pretty good too.

    some nice features in that system, though for the price i can just imagine it will cost I doubt i will add much of it.

    I have to say the t-boxxes look interesting

    I feel they could be easier to click together and taking them apart. I am also pretty hung up on the access to lower units when they are stacked. Plus more options with Systainers. Well. ….till I saw this thread.

    Very nice , cool idea that they give you options , but kind of expensive , Would be nice .

    I think it is pretty cool. Pricey, but cool and could be useful for a mobile shop.

    For me, the one advantage the Sortimo (L-Boxx) system had over Tanos (Systainer) was the drawer units. Well, there are older style non-T-loc Sortainers but I’ve got all T-locs so didn’t want them. [And I made the decision before finding BTP – would probably go with L-Boxxes now if starting from scratch].
    Anyway, Tanos recently announced a combi Systainer (with one drawer at bottom) and T-loc Sortainers. A few places in Canada carry them already.

    I’m pleased to see that both companies are expanding the options within their lines. If only they could lower the prices some!
