Designed for tradesmen and serious woodworkers, this sturdy detail sander kit features Bosch’s revolutionary micro-filter dust canister for cleaner material, happier sanding, and healthier lungs. A true random orbit finishing motion--not an arc or pivot-- delivers precise, even finishing in corners and tight spaces with no swirls. An ergonomic soft-grip handle and low-vibration design ensures smooth running and optimal comfort. Vibrating at 13,000 to 19,000 orbits per minute, this double-insulated sander ensures fast, smooth results on all surfaces. Great for reconditioning trim without making a mess of the drywall, the sander comes with an array of sheet extenders for easily reaching into fine groove details, nooks, and contours for clean, smooth surfaces ready for paint or stain. A handy dial selection lets you choose 6 different speeds for sanding a wide variety of materials. Unlike many sanding pads that wear unevenly, rendering sheets useless when most of the grit is still there, this detail sander’s triangular pads turn a full 120 degrees to utilize the whole sheet. Hook-and-loop attachment makes it easy to attach and detach grits through each stage of the sanding process without ruining sheets. The purchase is covered by a Bosch, limited 1-year warranty.

Please email me a site to buy parts or allow me to return both units as I am barely satisfied..
I need two extension plates ( might as well by 10 cause they will break)
2 steel clips ( again buy extras)
I'm not sure what the other part is called but I need it too..
I'm really hoping this seller will contact me

UPDATE, UPDATE, UPDATE--the people at bosch honored my warranty even though it was a couple months out of date. i think it is very cool they stood behind their product. they paid for shipping, repaired the sander, & sent it back without costing me a dime. this whole process probably took less than 2 weeks. very cool if you use & need your tools like i do. thank you BOSCH. the first guy i spoke with regarding this issue was a jerk & if you have a problem, i hope you do not have the displeasure of speaking with him. hope this helps--Jonathan
With mostly positive reviews here.... I believe it was user error or a freak occurrence.
UPDATE: Was in-warranty, and I found local shop that would repair. They did so. So I can now expect to get one more project out of it, at least.
However, this is more like a scaled down version of the multi-purpose vibrating tool, like then Bosch MX25EC-21 2.5-Amp Multi-X Oscillating Tool Kit than a machine designed solely for the purpose of sanding.
It lacks a built-in dust collector. Attaching to a shop-vac isn't nice, even if you found the right attachment. First of all, when I work on my staircase, the shop-vac is too big to sit on the steps. Second, the shop-vac is loud, adding to the already loud sanding noise. Third, the big hose on the shop-vac restricts your motion and angles. Fourth, any attachment that protrudes out don't have holes to collect dust.
I also wish that it would have attachment for smaller and larger sanding surface. Smaller surface would allow more pressure on a small surface, thus better for removal. Larger surface would polish big areas better and more evenly. The finger tool, while small, protrudes out on a flexible plastic bar so it can't apply pressure neither. There is a convex finger attachment for concave surface, but where's the one for the convex surface?
It works better on some jobs than others. If you work on small things like furniture which has softer wood and softer vanish, then you'll love it. However, if you use it as a detail sander for refinishing hard wood floor like me, then you'll be a little frustrated. It's not powerful enough to remove the tough vanish on most floors, even on 40-grit paper, which is the coarsest grit available for this type of machine. I had to use a hand scrapper first, then use this sander to smooth out the surface.
Tip 1: Be careful not to cover the air vents or else the machine would overheat.
Tip 2: You can apply a little pressure to the head using your other hand, but don't over do it or you would wear out the machine and paper faster.
Tip 3: Air coming out of the side very strong. You can use it to blow the dust off the surface.
