Cart with air compressor and Systainers

Makita, Compressor Cart, Shop Project, Nail Gun, Tool Cart

This user installed several feet of trim in a house and grew tired of lugging a compressor around. He started using the Makita MAC210Q compressor for the job which replaced a tired (and very loud!) Porter-Cable pancake unit for this quiet (but heavy) Makita.

To save time and his back, he first built the cart from scrap material and added quality casters and a clever handle design to keep from stooping to move it down the halls and around the kitchen when installing trim. Next he attached a Systainer T-Loc lid to the flat top of the compressor. This addition allows him to stack his nail gun systainers. One improvement he would like to have is to color match the lid and catch with Makita.

If you want to make something similar, checkout Systainer Store’s stock of Systainer3 parts, T-Loc parts and Classic parts.

This also looks to have Phenolic Faced Plywood, which you can get at Woodcraft or Amazon or a local supplier.
