Yea ya heard, I got some tough boxes at HD today, 2 DS130s and 1 350, no wheels yet not sure my direction but this stack will be dedicated for my sanders, time for kaizen foam!!

Had to put my 1 systainer on top I may not keep this one and put the sander in a tough box

These pull down storage boxes are cool too I made some modifications, I cut out a hole to slide the palm sander punch in and out

This one will be for my ryobi detail sander and a couple OMTs I use for sanding

And the bottom, just threw some stuff in

I'll keep updating as I organize and modify

At the moment I have my Bosch sander in an l boxx and I hate having to take it in and out all the time. After my current table saw storage build I will be building a sanding station for the wall. No more in and out of a box for the sander and papers.

nice setup @JimboS1ice. I like how you mixed different systems together. Just ordered myself a ds300 box.


I'd like to be able to clip that systainer on top if not I may just toss it aside and put the sander in a toughbox with some kaizen

Those are nice cases. Makes me wish I wasn't invested in the Ridgid pro cases @jimboslice

I have a ridgid pro stack too, I keep my angle grinders and discs in that one, gotta say the tough system is a step up, you get more luxuries with it

I was just thinking that you had the Ridgid stack system too. Makes sense to go with different boxes so you know which is which easily.

The tough system is a great box.

noticed that you have the muffler for your shop vac how do you like it I was thinking about buying it 


Muffler is definitly worth it, so much quieter and it tones the beast of the vac down better for sanders

Used a gift card at farm and fleet for this guy, will keep sand paper in it

I looked long and hard at building a rack for about 6 of these but in the end I just couldn't justify the cost. Outside of rare deals they're just too expensive for me. My coworker and I end up mixing together our supplies a lot (both have Dewalt so it's a cluster) and he has the older style Dewalt cases so I ended up going with the Milwaukee case instead so it would be easy to differentiate. It's on sale frequently enough that it was a much easier pill to swallow.

If I didn't have a gift card I would have just used a ds130, the milwaukees rock, I don't see 40 in this other than it locks in my stack

Of the small storage containers that come with either the ds130 or the Ridgid box, which do you like better?

I think Jimboslice mean the DeWalt DS100 is not worth the $40 he spent on it compared to the $20 for the Milwaukee boxes

What ford said, I think 40 bucks is steep for the ds100 IMO, if I were doing just organizers the Milwaukee is a better bang for the buck

I think the containers are about the same you get a more size variety with the tough box and the ds130 comes with two folding lid containers which is cool

Curious as to why the 130 is cheaper than the 100 considering its a bit bigger and has the lid compartments.

Good question maybe cost of clear plastic and if you want an organizer we're going to make you pay? Lol
