About this deal

These becomed detached from the rotating pad occasionally, but usually only when well used or when I am doing something weird with it, like sanding at an angle. New: A brand-new, unused, unopened and undamaged item in original retail packaging (where packaging . The finish that can be achieved is very impressive; with its random orbit action it tends to eliminate any tell-tale signs that a power sander was ever used on the project.

Work dust free thanks to the Bosch integrated Microfilter system box which sucks the dust directly into the Microfilter box.Fast, effective, powerful sander with 125mm pad; having random orbit motion plus rotation ensures a good quality sand and polish on flat and curves, removing waste fast. This is an advantage especially when working on varnished surfaces: if you select a low speed, the surface will not get too hot and the paint on a workpiece will not burn.

With the hook-and-loop fastening system, the sanding paper can be removed and replaced quickly and easily. The integrated Microfilter System conveys the dust at high speed directly through the sanding sheet and sanding pad, trapping it in the microfilter box. OMG unbelievable difference, the Bosch ripped through the old cornice glue like it was made from meringue cake base.Bosch Low Vibration, Velcro-type fastening, Micro-filter system, Speed preselection, Bosch Electronic, Extra handle, Aluminium housing, Softgrip. Re sourcing velcro hook sheets, I don't know where we got the sheets I mentioned above from as they were originally located by someone else and after testing one lot he was responsible for further purchases.

First random orbital sander I've ownedI bought my PEX 400 about 15 years ago to sand a plywood dinghy and although it hasn't had a great deal of work since I have kept using it, no issues with Velcro on the backing plate, the little dust filter clogs quickly and it has finally worn out a backing plate ( Velcro was still working).

This product carries a full 3 year manufacturers warranty covering both faulty materials and faulty workmanship, it does not cover general wear and tear or damage, batteries, blades, bulbs and other consumables. The problem however is removing the dust tank which the instruction booklet doesn't tell you how to do, turns out you just pull it out, it's quite tightly fitted so requires some force.The secret of the Bosch random orbit sander is its unique combination of rotary and orbital actions, which ensures perfect and scratch-free quality sanding with high-quality polishing performance. I find using this handle together with the main handle more natural and I could apply more even a pressure to the work as compared to the two (ie one less handle) provided on PEX300. Specifications Dual function sander-polisher Constant electronics Hook and loop base Variable speed control Supplied . Yes I have great big Dewalt DS300 and DS400 Tooughsystem of boxes but they are awkward to stash under the stairs; and to use one tool I would have to find the right box.

It may not be the top end for this type of product but it is great for the general user that might be on a sensible budget. The user is able to use an external dust extraction, but the vacuum cleaner must be suitable for the material to be worked. The required sanding speed is dependent on the material and can be optimised through experimentation. If they didn't come ready supplied with cases I would have to find one that is just right for each tool.They mention that it doesn't fit properly, it's a pain to fit properly back on, and it'd be better if it was smaller.
