    It depends on what you’re looking for. I find they have really good prices on supplies, consumables and hardware but their prices on portable power tools aren’t as cheap as what you can find online or in bigger stores.

    Could Festool sand disc work with Bosch Sander ? I saw the article said that Festool is the best sand disc in term of durability

    Hong if the discs have hook and loop and the right number of holes they should work.

    Jason. I have another question, could I use more holes sand disk? Will it more better ?

    #41284

    The holes in the sandpaper only correlate to the dust collection of the tool. Hence, when the holes in the sandpaper are properly aligned with the holes on the sander, it will best allow dust collection.

    Thanks You , everyone.

    Now I got it, I only used the random orbit sander once. I could still remembered it, the Dewalt random orbit sander, it vibrates a lot. My hand was really pain after used it.

    I have one Bosch old Sheet Orbital, and I only use it.

    Anyone have the new half-sheet sander Bosch started selling? I really like orbital sanders — they really help ensure a smooth, flat surface. This one looks interesting.

    this one?

    it sure seems like a quality product. Is the only difference between it and the ROS65 the fact it uses sheets?

    I always hated loading the paper in the small finishing sanders, before RO hook and loops became available.

    Agreed Mark. Back to the brand of sandpaper discs – I get mine from the Klingspor Woodworking shop. Very good discs at a good price.

    Anyone have any further updates on the new 5″ & 6″ ROS from Bosch?

    I think it has been updated with this one:

    It has the newer vibration control and looks like a great machine.

    Klingspor makes very good sandpaper — it is made in Germany, I believe. I used a lot of it before I got my Festool sanders and paper.

    I caved and bought one of those craftsman 50 piece pack of what seems like 8.5×11 sandpaper. I guess you can cut to the desired length and choose from one of 8 different grits. Havent touched it since i bought it especially since i only have a random orbit sander.

    I like the sheet sander because I could use finest grit of sandpaper like 2000

    Hong, have you ever used 2,000 grit with a random orbital?

    Jason. No, I had never used 2,000 grit with random orbital and I don’t think the sand disc is exist.

    I used 2,000 grit with the 1/2-Sheet Orbital Finishing Sander

    #42246

    With Festool paper you can get various grits up to 4,000 or higher — you can take a Rotex sander and go from agressive to a mirror polish just working through the various grits. I am sure you could do the same with Bosch’s dual-mode sander as well in the aggressive mode. Personally I stop sanding bare wood at 400 grit for most things — I typically use an oil finish. If you are painting or applying some other finish you can stop at 180 or 220 or some other lower grit. The higher grits are useful sanding between coats.
