This is obviously a radio but is that all it is. This item is found on my garage workbench where I see it every day.

Minolta S414, Auto Program mode



I'll post another shot later if nobody guesses.

It's a radio, but it's also a toolbox.

No. Not really. However, if you really stretch the definition of toolbox, it might fit.

Well, not DeWalt but how about Ryobi? When I went into Home Depot a few years ago to buy a new cordless drill, I liked the Ryobi but it came with only one battery pack. An extra battery pack was around $60-70 more. I was talking to a salesperson who said "I can't tell you this but go look at the end of the aisle at the one with the radio. It was the same drill but had two battery packs and a radio/charger/stand combination for just a few dollars more than the drill with one battery pack. The hole in the middle is where the battery plugs in for charging. There is even a small covered tray on top for parts or extra bits.

lol, Cal. I feel dumb. I saw the colors on the edg of the battery and I immediately thought of one I had seen at Lowe's that was a DeWalt and looked it up. The reason it's bad is that I have a set of the 18V Ryobi tools (drill, circular saw, reciprocating saw, jigsaw, chain saw, and even the light that I used in this thread). I should have recognized the battery.

I wonder if they have that radio/charger in the 18V version, hmmmm..

Does it mow the lawn, cook the dinner, and provide a broadband connection as well, while you drill?
