    Honolulu,, Hi.

    The round compartment where you crammed in the cord is actually designed for sanding pads

    Thanks again and well that explains it. Lol I ha to wind it a few times to get it in to that spot. I’ll definitely leave it free flowing regularly then.

    Too funny!

    😂

    Sorry Aaron, I couldn’t help but laugh this morning and spill my mornin coffee reading that.

    I’ve using either those cable clamps or even cheaper simply old shampoo bottles where I cut off the top and bottom and stuff the cord inside. Works great.

    I find myself taking a pic of the setup when it’s new so I can look back.

    Now that’s a good idea, print it out and stick it on the inside of the lid.

    And along with where optional accessories might be intended to fit. They’d probably sell more accesories that way too.

    This is one AWESOME sander.

    A couple month ago I bought the Bosch dual mode sander 1250DEVS. This sander is made in Germany. Once again Bosch makes a quality tool. This thing is angry and will chew up whatever you put under it.

    This is a 6-inch disc, so it is made to cover lots of material in a short time. In addition, it is very powerful, good for taking off large amounts of material. Beats sanding by hand unless you need more control for finer details goes back to a block of wood raped in sandpaper.

    Sanding is a task most people, I included, do not enjoy and as such anything that makes it faster and easier is always welcomed. Well, this sander does just that!

    The 1250DEVS is probably the most used Bosch tool in my shop. Don’t know what I would do without it.

    I have found that it is a beast, and as such takes some getting used to in aggressive mode, however when I stripped and refinished a table that has sat on my deck for years there was nothing better. I also like to use Abranet or their Autonet product with my 1250DEVS, they are awesome dust collection wise.

    Does take a bit to get used to holding the sander right. It can get away from you quick.

    That’s for sure, bit of a learning curve if you are used to under powered sanders.

    The only time I go to a smaller sander now is for very small jobs that are difficult to hold. The power of the big 6″ sander doesn’t work well in situations like that. I still keep a couple of DeWalt 5″ sanders handy for those small jobs.

    Has anyone compared this sander to the Festool Rotex?

    I got tired of the Bosch bouncing around and bought the Rotex…night and day difference IMO. The Festool is much smoother and generally more comfortable.

    When I got the Festool Pro5, a lot of people were complaining that it was bouncy, and a lot of people sent theirs in for repair. One tip I read somewhere was to just clamp the sander somewhere (where the pad is not touching anything) and let it run full speed for 24 hours of so, which would smooth down the gears or something.

    I had nothing to lose, so I did it.

    After that breaking in period, I saw such an improvement that I did that to every one of my sanders. It takes a long time for a sander to have 24 hours of runtime, so this gets the break-in period over with

    Since then, my 1250DEVS and my ROS65VC are much more tame. Might be worth a try

    I can’t say that I’ve ever heard that one before! Glad it worked for you though!
