      Was moving into a new place and didn't want to buy a bunch of furniture, so decided to refinish some old stuff & make some. Was moving from overseas so basically had zero tools with me. This was one of the first tools I bought after a lot of research, and even though it's more expensive than many sanders you see, it is well worth the premium. Dust collection is excellent, in fact if I need to sand something around the house will reach for this often as it creates way less dust than using a piece of sandpaper. Variable speed, which I thought would be a gimmick, is actually very useful. As I didn't have many other tools I tended to 'abuse' this one by using it for all sorts of stuff it really isn't design for (rounding edges, smoothing curves, etc). Always worked great. It's worthwhile finding the hard baseplate if you can too, can then use this for more serious material removal. Carrying case holds tool + some sandpaper. The sandpaper in envelopes doesn't fit too well though, they should have made a little more room to hold extra sandpaper I think. Use by my girlfriend as well a lot, she found it pretty comfortable, and liked the variable speed as she was more comfortable with it set a little slower.

      Difficult to clean after heavy usage.  Left swirl marks; I am a very experienced woodworker.

      Perfection

      By Paulie

      from South Carolina, United States

      Comments about Bosch Tools 5" Palm Random Orbit Sander Kit:

      This sander is very nice. Hook and loop system is easy and changing discs is a snap. The variable speed feature is nice . The dust filter and box really does a good job. I couldn't believe how much dust came out of that filter. Excellent product.

      Since I bought this orbital I've used the attachment for a dust free area and it worked very well. The variable speed on this sander is a good feature.

      Comments about Bosch Tools 5" Palm Random Orbit Sander Kit:

      Bought this last year and I am still very happy with this unit. The adjustable speed control and ease of removing the filter to hook up to a shop vac is a plus. Also like that it is very comfortable to use. Keep up the good work Bosch!!!

      Works Great

      By MWS1966

      from Nicholasville, KY, United States

      Comments about Bosch Tools 5" Palm Random Orbit Sander Kit:

      I've always been one to hand sand my projects, but this time I decided to buy a sander. After reading the reviews of this Bosch, I decided to go with it. I have no regrets with my purchase other than wishing I'd bought one sooner. It does a great job and my arms are not warn out from the sanding.

      works very well

      By Coyotegranpa

      from Fayetteville, AR

      Comments about Bosch Tools 5" Palm Random Orbit Sander Kit:

      So far have used it to sand between varnish coats and am very satisfied with it. My old sander would over rev if you took it of the surface you were sanding for even a second, leaving a mark where it touched back down . also it took forever to quit rotating after you turned the switch off. The Bosch is much better in this regard. Haven't used the dust filter as it was hooked to my shop vac. Wish that connection was a twist lock of sometime as I ended up taping vacuum hose to it as slip connection was kind of loose. also wish there was an 8 hole apaptor to use with Abranet disks as I had many of those on hand when my old sander died.

      Solid tool

      By eztrigger

      from Houston, TX

      Comments about Bosch Tools 5" Palm Random Orbit Sander Kit:

      I bought this sander because I was fed up with my cheap quarter sheet sander and hand sanding was just too slow.  Overall I am pleased with the performance so far.  Construction quality has a solid look and feel and the tool has not faltered in the time I've used it.  The built in dust collection seems to work pretty well, although I found the integrated filter slightly frustrating when emptying.  The plastic case is good as well, although I would like to see it in the L-Boxx style like my other bosch tools.  I also found the integrated paper alignment tool only works if the sand paper is perfectly flat, other wise, the paper sticks before it is aligned.  As others have noted, it seems that light pressure is best, so proper grit selection is critical to effective use of this tool.  Noise levels are quite low and the vibrations are comfortable.  All in all, I would probably buy this one again if I had to buy another one.
