Default Bosch 3725DEVS-RT ROS

I'm thinking there is probably a better place to ask about this ROS, but I wanted the Bosch Guru aka Stick's input.

Is this a good one for general purpose work? Some cabinet work, china shelving, small cases, polishing antique wood furniture etc.

Bob, I own the ROS65VCL; this is the big brother to the model you are looking at. I have been very pleased with it's performance. I highly recommend getting one of the Bosch hoses for dust collection.

all that is needed is an adapter that come in the kited units...
if not get one Bosch or the plumbing section at a BB...
use your own hosing...

I use sump pump hose and pvc plumbing fittings on my trac saw and sanders. Sometimes I use a dremel tool to "fit" the PVC to the tool

I agree with all of the above posts. I have the six inch model too. Stick up me onto the Norton 3X ceramic paper which I highly recommend after following his suggestion. Can't imagine a better ROS sander with that paper.

Thanks for the info everyone. Will proceed to buy now. I assumed it would be a no brainer, but needed confirmation.

Bob,
That's just one of the many benefits of the forum, you not only get good information but have fun doing so.

Jerry,
I've been on this forum, for a few months. Considering my age, that is only a mili-mili (who's counting) second in time. However, I have looked at many forums over my years, and never did anything but say "Why am I here?"

This group of people are priceless. The Good Time part really is as important as the outstanding knowledge passed on to all who are interested. In the morning I breeze through the garbage e-Mails so I can spend the time on this forum. I learn something new every day. Sometimes it is discarded, example, I don't have a CNC. The rest gets filed in the 1 Woodworking Folder for future reference. The senior group can't be beat, but a newbie can give as good an answer, and is appreciated by all.

I'll get off my soap box and say "Atta Boy" to all.

Bob

Sorry for tailgating this discussion but can anyone tell me how well this ROS (the 3725DEVS-RT) dampens the vibrations transmitted to the hands? I understand the ROS65VCL does a great job on vibrations but I'm looking to replace a 5" PC ROS. Other than causing pain, it is a wonderful little tool. I may well get the Bosch ROS65 but not as a replacement.

Having "the arthritis" makes sanding an experience I generally dread. I've look at the Festool sanders and they seem way pricey for what you get. (Not trying to start an F-war, just explaining why I'm not inclined to go Green.)
