Default HP-10 Packaging

I am finalizing the packaging for the HP-10 Foxtail Convertible Plane.

I can easily adapt the foam to fit nicely in to the Systainer 2 boxes. The Plane body with fence and soles will fit in one side of the box. Four sole and iron kits will fit in the other half. It would make a for a nice all inclusive system.

You will only need to cut a couple of notches in the foam around the annoying Systainer corner details. I'll see if I can have the die just put score lines so that the layout is easy.

Does the Systainer 2 idea sound good? Systainer 1 was not a good fit.

Michael

What a great idea! I was wondering why you were asking about the Systainer dimensions. I love it.

I'm not sure whether I'd use a Systainer or not. My Sysports are over on the other side of the garage from where I keep my planes. It would seem wrong, somehow, to keep the HP-10 with the power tools. I'll have to think about it.

Good idea and simple option.

Can you make the JMP fit in a Sys 2 next!?

I'm gonna guess the idea came from this frame of the Carvex review Michael recently watched:

hp-10-packaging-screen-shot-2013-09-12-12.32.10

Note the stack of Systainers/Sortainers behind me and the walnut box for the SE Rabbet plane (a.k.a. stainless steel HP-10) with the SE Rabbet plane on top with the fence attached.

I know where mine's going

Think of it this way Peter. You'll just have to get another Sysport to put your hand tools in. Maybe we could have them powder coated in a Bridge City color.....

People might even buy the BCT anthracite & orange latch systainers just to create the illusion they have lots of John's tools...

Michael, are you still considering the systainer idea? The nice thing about it, besides the obvious, is for those of us that travel to classes with our tools. Nice, safe, easy option.
