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

      I was originally thinking to go cheaper on a palm sander, but this was such a good value. Solid, with good power, and easy to use (ergonomic). Enough weight to feel solid, but not so much that it's hard to use if you're holding it up to a piece. Nice rubber grip and heavy-duty power cord. I bought it reconditioned (even better because of the price). It came clean and in perfect condition with a molded case.

      The variable speed is nice and the small dust collector does a good job when I'm sanding a small project (I also like this because it's even quieter when you're not running a vacuum). But if you're going to sand for a while, you can easily hook it up to a vacuum to collect the dust.

      The orbital motion does a good job removing material. I think it uses the sandpaper well also, doesn't burn out the sandpaper. Sandpaper sticks well to the sander. Overall I highly recommend it. Even if you are "just" a DIYer or a hobbyist, if you're working with wood enough...don't go cheap on a sander. Get one that's quality built - like this Bosch sander. You won't regret it.

      This tool doesn't cut my steak.

      By Raakalainen

      from Phoenix

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

      So, I was looking at a bunch of reviews on this sander and noticed a trend in the lower ratings. This review is to state that - if used correctly - this sander is an excellent sander. The primary purpose of this sander is heavier finishing, not stripping. If you want to strip stain or heavy paint, or smooth out a very rough surface, obviously you need a higher powered sander. Like a belt sander. Or a chisel or hand plane. Every single sander out there will bog down if enough force is applied to it, as well. With this sander, you shouldn't even be applying any force to it. Just let the weight of the sander do the work for you, with very small amounts of even pressure here and there, if at all needed. People will inevitably use it for tasks it's not designed for, and thus give it a bad review. If you use it correctly, it will perform exactly how you would expect it to. I've used mine - as a finishing sander - every single day for the past year and a half and with a bit of unavoidable maintenance here and there, and it works just as well as the day I bought it. I've also used my higher powered belt sander for stripping and roughing now for around 6 years - nearly every single day. Still works - and it's a brand that's not nearly at the quality level of Bosch tools. It's all in how you use it - every tool has a specific task, and this tool does it's specific task very well. Very obvious analogy here, but you shouldn't use a wrench to cut your steak.

        I have used the little sander a good bit since I got it. It is a good as all the reviews say. I love it and its a great price. I have several Bosch tools and they are all great. My jig saw is at least 15 years old and going great. I love using a quality tool and this is one.
