Can't use adhesive back paper

By 

from Colorado

Comments about Bosch Tools 1/4-Sheet Orbital Finishing Sander:

Sander is advertised as able to use adhesive back sandpaper. It can't. When trying to remove sandpaper, it sticks to rubber backing and tears the rubber. Engineer sent me a different pad and it is just as bad.

done with bosch

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bosch Tools 1/4-Sheet Orbital Finishing Sander:

I run a wood shop at a major educational university and bought 3 of these a year ago. The tool worked fine until the rubber bumper that holds the sand paper down wore out. I bought a dozen replacement bumpers thinking i'd be set for a long time but the replacement bumpers wear out in 2-4 weeks. I had the distributer contact their bosch rep about the matter and was told they would do nothing to remedy the issue. I've run into this problem with every bosch tool in our shop. Works fine until a small part wears out and the replace parts are junk. I've been replacing all the bosch tools in the shop with anything other than bosch. very disappointed in the quality control. I make it a point to steer people in the direction of other companies.

Wonderful sander. Light. Easy to handle.

By 

from Niceville, FL, United States

Comments about Bosch Tools 1/4-Sheet Orbital Finishing Sander:

I have had this sander since April 2012. I have made almost 200 cutting boards, a rocking chair, a side cabinet, a murphy bed with two side cabinets, a Franklin Chair, and numerous other crafts. Finally, the front rubber clamp cover won't stay on. Just went on Bosch site, found it ordered it for a reasonable price and shipping price. Good dust collection; easy to change paper.

My First Bosch Product

By 

from Oklahoma City, OK, United States

Comments about Bosch Tools 1/4-Sheet Orbital Finishing Sander:

Purchased this sander as a recommendation from a fellow woodworker as i was unfamiliar with Bosch power tools i took a chance. I have used the sander for a while now on projects from sanding and refinishing an old cedar chest to finishing Corian counter tops. So far so good and this has led me to purchase multiple other Bosch power tools based on the quality of this little sander. I have had the sander for several years now and have yet to experience any of the previous issues with the baseplate,not sure if it has changed in design since i purchased mine. In my experience it has been a solid purchase and for the money if it broke today i would buy it again.

Rubber wears

By 

from Butler, NJ, United States

Comments about Bosch Tools 1/4-Sheet Orbital Finishing Sander:

I used this sander 3 times and, at first, I was impressed how tight and secure it held the sandpaper. Unfortunately, the rubber, that overlays the front clamp deteriorated and has rendered this unit useless. I searched for a site that would offer a replacement part but to no avail.

Comments about Bosch Tools 1/4-Sheet Orbital Finishing Sander:

I like the quiet operation. I especially like the paper fastening system. It is quick and easy to change the paper, and doesn't come loose.

Didn't last

By 

from Santa Clarita, CA, United States

Comments about Bosch Tools 1/4-Sheet Orbital Finishing Sander:

I initially I loved this product, worked great and held the sheet tight. However after using it for a few jobs it sanded down the rubber on the rear clamp, and no longer holds a sheet of sandpaper.  The rear clamp needs to be redesigned.

By 

from Strasburg, VA

Comments about Bosch Tools 1/4-Sheet Orbital Finishing Sander:

I had this for a few months. It did the job until last week when the sheet locking lever came completely off. All that I can use on it now is the sticky paper but I don't care for that.There is no way to fix it, all that is left to do is throw it away.
