    So, I just picked up this bad boy for a great price.

    A few notes:

    1) it is HUGE and heavy (not a bad thing)
    2) it is in amazing shape.
    3) finding the stand and fence for it has been a bit of an adventure. More on that below.

    Sweet sander! A couple years ago, I looked high and low for that sander and came up empty. I ended up buying a Makita 9404 24×4 sander and building a stand for it. I’ll see if I can locate a few pictures.

    I think the stand would be a must for that, Is it a bench stand or floor? I have one similar to that (Skil) and I end up clamping it upside down in my vise a lot…What ya gonna sand? That thing will eat a lot of material in a short time

    I will attempt to attach the schematics after posting this. I am having issues getting my post to go through due to lag on my end, so it will be updated soon.

    The stand # is 1608932026. This is typically shown as the stand for the 1276 belt sander. This stand is entirely discontinued except for a few screws/misc pieces from Bosch’s Online Parts deal. BUT I found it on ebay for an OK price (more than I wished).
    Quick note about the stand (I do not have it yet). I called Bosch customer service and they verified that this stand DOES work with the 1273DVS. As I said, it is listed on most sites as only working with the 1276 models (no idea what the difference is between these models), BUT Bosch CS confirmed in a 2000 Bosch tool catalog that the 1273DVS is listed as compatible. Besides, the 1273 and 1276 models look quite similar from pics online.

    The fence for the 1276 stand is #1608932046
    http://www.mtmc.co.uk/Bosch-/-1608932046-Spare-Parts__p-46862.aspx
    Now, I was unable to find this fence online, BUT I was able to find the fence for the 1274DVS belt sander – part # 2607001079. Thus, this gets a little more complicated

    Now, these two stands are basically identical from schematics apart from how they attach to the sander (see attached – compare upper rights). Unfortunately, Bosch has discontinued the screws for attaching the 702/20 – STOP BRACKET to my belt sander. Thus, I had to call Bosch CS a few more times to get some more details. Here it is in case anyone else ever has to replicate my work (odds are slim but you never know).

    I need to find
    qty 2 of 702/110 – COUNTERSUNK-HEAD SCREW DIN 963-M6x14mm-4.8

    and qty 1 of part 702/140 – (not quite sure on type of screw – see below)

    702/140 on the schematic (doesnt mean much necessarily) looks quite a bit similar to 702/70 – which is a socket head cap screw DIN 84 – M5x16mm-8.8.
    Bosch CS said all he could find out about the 702/140 is that it was M6x14mmm so we will see if I can play around with it and make something work. I am guessing it is a socket head cap screw m6x14mm.

    I ended up ordering three parts from Bosch (GREAT customer service by the way). Two to make the 1274 fence (#2607001079) work on my sander and one extra screw to see if it might work for one of those 3 screws listed above.

    The parts I ordered:
    Item Part
    2608010007 STOP BRACKET
    1610210043 O-Ring
    2910021158 SCREW

    We will see if this all pays off lol.

    I knew as soon as I saw it I had to jump on it – mostly because it is in amazing condition.

    I think the stand would be a must for that, Is it a bench stand or floor?

    Bench stand. See here: http://www.internationaltool.com/bosch-1608932026-sanding-stand

    What ya gonna sand? That thing will eat a lot of material in a short time

    It was such a deal that it wasn’t so much about having a project in mind as it was more of a “why not” grab 🙂

    The stand doesn’t look too bad but it may need to be secured to a bench, For the price of it I’ll stick to my vice method. It’s quicker anyway, I wouldn’t worry about getting the screws from Bosch LOL. Ain’t no reason to not go to the local hardware store for that, The fence may come in handy once in a great while but for only little tiny pieces. It ain’t like that belt is very long, I rarely have a need for one. Just sounds like more apparatus to remove to use it by hand, Might help on the resale value though

    my only concern was the fact they were metric – seems like some places don’t have the best selection on it. I am sure I can find something that will work.

    The stand doesn’t look too bad but it may need to be secured to a bench,

    Totally – I am thinking I will mount it to a piece of ply (1/2? 3/4?) and then use clamps to secure to bench

    If they don’t have it, you don’t need it.
    I finally went in the store in my little town and was overwhelmed – why had I never gone there before? Would have saved many hours.

    No luck finding a picture…I’ll have to take some tomorrow.

    This is the original design I used. It’s basical a cradle that holds the sander secure. I almost exclusively use it face up though. I probably need to add a 90* fence to the thing as well. It would make edge sanding much easier. To be honest, I rarely use mine out of the stand anymore.

    Before I got my stationary belt disc sander I use to put my 3×24 makita sander in a woodworking vise upside down for small pieces. I like the 3×24 because I could put a 4×24 belt on it and it was lighter to use than the big 4×24. Nice sander by the way John.

    Those are amazing sanders. Good luck with it. I’ve scribed lots of countertops and trim with mine. I think the difference between the models is the folding front handle and maybe magnesium cast parts. I always wanted the stand but never go around to getting one.

    Yeah reasonable price doesn’t exist on the stand or fence from what I can tell, but I will see what I can do. I got the sander for $50 so I was very happy with that.

    Awesome score! I always look for good deals on used stuff. A lot of people I know go to garage sales or swap meets and get really good deals on tools.

    That’s a great price ! I sold my BS, it was well used and ready to be replaced anyway. I bought it used in good condition too and sold it for more than I paid so that was a win. Still not sure what I want to replace it.

    Here’s my stand. Just a simple, form fit box really. The sander is held in place by a pair of bolts that squeeze the frame to the body of the sander.
