Fantastic sander! April 16 2009
By Jeff4U - Published on
This sander is an excellent product. It's very quiet, vibration is to a minimum, easily connects to a vacuum hose, and the sandpaper can be quickly changed.

Which hose attachment to get:
Confusion exists with all the multitude of adapters to connect this Bosch sander to a vacuum hose. I want to clear this up here and now. To connect this sander to a ShopVac with the smaller 1 1/2" hose, buy these 2 items:
Bosch RS006 Hose Adapter for Various Sanders
Fein 921072K13 Step Adaptor
The Fein step adapter is made of rubber - not plastic. It's easy to cut where it will fit snugly on the Bosch RS006 adapter. (DO NOT BUY Bosch brand adapters other than the RS006!!) Make sure you TAKE YOUR TIME cutting the Fein step adapter. I left a little extra rubber on mine so I could use a hose clamp if needed to secure it to the Bosch RS006.

I rely heavily on customer reviews and hope mine was helpful to you. Feel free to leave a comment or question.

Best 1/2 Sheet Oct. 11 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Combination of hard pad and dust collection make this the best half sheet. I've used the Makita, Milwaukee, and Porter Cable and they can't match up for finish sanding. Good reliable product that sands flat and won't round at the edges/corners. I reecommend it atop the rest.

I've owned this sander for 2 years. Sept. 15 2010
By Bryan - Published on
Verified Purchase
And although it is made in Switzerland, certain parts are poorly designed. I just payed Bosch over $30.00 to send me a new swing plate (aka base plate) and another tension clip, both of which snapped off on separate occassions. There is a little (and I mean little) tab which holds the tension clips in place while you're sanding -the tension clips hold the sandpaper in place. Each tab is a very small thin "bump" of aluminum on each side of the base plate, and they can snap off, as one of mine did. I didn't want to buy a new base plate so I had to bend the tension clip in and tuck it under the sander body in order to keep it from working loose during sanding. This put an extra strain on it and it finally broke. So I had to give in and order both parts. If the tabs were stronger and better designed this would not be an issue.

Great Sander Dec 18 2007
By J. Tincher - Published on

I own several Bosch routers (1716EVS's) and a 5" Random Orbit Sanders (3725DEVS), in my book they are the best in their class. I needed a better sheet sander to replace my Makita and wow did I pick a winner! Like all Bosch tools I own this one is smooth as butter and there is absolutely no vibration (so you won't get tired). This sander produces an excellent finish and the dust collection is top notch (I use a shop vac attachment).

Changing papers is real easy, the sander is easy to handle and you don't get tired from vibration or noise. This is a very solid tool. As is normal, you get what you pay for and there is no disappointment here in this sander's performance.... I'm really happy with my purchase.

Amazing Tool. Feb. 7 2009
By Fidel A. Fernandez - Published on
Verified Purchase
Well, I was looking to buy a half sheet sander and I also own a lot of festool tools so my first options was to look at the RS2 festool version.
Great machine but expensive (340.00) so I tried to find another options.
I looked at different brands but knowing Bosch as one of the top quality, I decided to try.
I bought it from Amazon and went to sand. It is a pleasure, it is easy on your hands, low noise, you don't need hearing protection.
I ordered the adapter RS006 and I can use it with my festool CT22 with not modifications.
I tested this weekend the RS2 from festool and I didn't see any difference between the two. So I saved good money and got good quality.
I only need to see the longevity, I will comeback in one year to let you know, but I can tell you that you won't get wrong buying this tool.
