Quite a lot of sound and heat shielding. Also several yards of Beige carpet.

shhh, he doesn't know yet :wicked:

Seriously though, it's the carpet for the Winpala. 40 year old shag carpeting that disintegrates to the touch is not a good look.

After scoring a deal on relatively cheap winter shoes on Monday, I added relatively expensive winter jacket today.

Came with three batteries - two worked just fine, last one won't hold a charge.

Are they 18v? They should still be able to use their most current batteries, no?
Yes and yes, though the later lithium ion battery packs require a different charger than the older ones. Lots of people selling these don't seem to realize this, though - there's lots of these blue 18V Ryobi tools being dumped cheap around here.

Ryobi also has dual-chemistry chargers that come with *most* tools.

I gotta say, as much of a compromise as it may be for cost and ergonomics to have to have that post, I have to give them a lot of credit for even making their newest tools compatible with batteries from 18+ years ago, and the other way around, too.

Got a good deal on amazon for it, compared to simarly specced Synology Diskstation (compared to a DS1517+ I saved roughly 300€). It will mainly be a databox for my pictures and plex server, so i don't care all to much about the sw extras the synology DS would have had. .

Daaaaaamn....jelly! A drum sander, bandsaw, and jointer would be my next three purchases...if I had any more available square footage. :(
Yeah they take up a buttload of space, even the small ones. I've got a bandsaw already, looking for a small planer next.
