      Comments about 5 in. VS Random Orbit Palm Sander Kit:

      I am currently a student in a cabinet and furniture making degree program, and this sander seems to operate a lot smoother than the other various sanders offered at the school. It is also very ergonomic, and comfortable with a variety of grips. It feels like a solid, quality product. Hard to beat at this price point. Sufficiently powerful, with appropriate variable settings. I wouldn't change anything about the sander.

      The case is fine, and is also a quality product, but I wish it were part of the L-boxx system. I'm not sure why Bosch even bothers molding cases that aren't. But, it's better than a bag. The case even has 8 little knobs to help line up the disk with holes in the sander. An easy task regardless, but a thoughtful inclusion. I actually use it more than expected.

      I'm not sure about the advantage of orbitals that cost twice this price, but this one is hard to beat. Case is great, but doesn't fit with their system.

          Comments about 5 in. VS Random Orbit Palm Sander Kit:

          If there's one thing I've learned in my DIY ventures, it's this: Spend a little more on quality tools. Among my favorites are a superbly engineered Bosch right angle drill/driver. I've been struggling along with a truly mediocre Ryobi orbital sander, which struck me as a modest improvement, at best, over hand sanding. This Bosch sander opened my eyes to what I'd been missing. While I had to bear down on the material with the Ryobi to accomplish anything, the Bosch does the work in a fraction of the time with very little pressure. Thanks to CPO's refurbished offerings, I was able to purchase this sander for a very attractive price. The unit looked as if it was brand new and operates that way.

              First it's a Bosch. That means quality and long life. I use it for building fine furniture. So it's great because there is no swirl marks. Well done Bosch!

                Received one that looked immaculate but plug was bent, got a replacement quickly sent out but next one had long hairs and junk on the Velcro pad definately seemed used. I think the plug must have been replaced because it seemed unusually um it just seemed like wrong and was difficult to get back in the box. I bought sanding pads made for an 8 hole sander but no matter what grit pad I used or what speed I put it on 2 things happen.
                First I may be wrong but it seems like the slightest pressure makes the sanding pad sit still while the Velcro pad spins.
                Second I keep getting little circles it's obvious it's from the holes in the pads but it's annoying. I tried to sand a gouge from a wooden sofa table and spent most of my time sanding out millions of little circles.

                Comments about 5 in. VS Random Orbit Palm Sander Kit:

                This is my first Random Orbit Sander, and it did not disappoint. It is built like a typical Bosch tool, that is solid and like a tank. It took about two uses on scrap to get used to how it works, and from then on it just did its job beautifully.

                The case has a place to help with mounting the discs on the sander so that the holes in the disc align perfectly with the holes in the backing pad. Nice touch, but not really needed. Putting the discs on was a breeze without the alignment thing.

                The dust collection system works pretty well. It seems to get about 90% to 95% of the dust and is easy to empty and clean. I haven't tried it with the vacuum adapter yet, but at least it comes with one.

                  Can I attach a buffing pad to this sander to use as a buffer?

                  • A:

                    No, since this product is a random orbit sander it's not suitable for use as a buffer.
