I have owned several different brands of random orbital sanders and have found the Bosh to be the most kind to my hands. I'm sure a lot of us has gotten sore or numb hands from the feed back from some sanders. I feel the Bosh has the least amount of feed back / vibration, I can immediately tell which sander in hand with out looking.

I picked up the Bosch ROS20...nice kit and case...

I have some carpal tunnel issues and found the Bosch to be comfortable enough that it doesn't bother me. I've been using the Dewalts and noticed the difference immediately. Very little vibration compared to the Dewalts I've had...no more buzzing hands or fingers...

Not sure if you've seen this video...speaks to what features would be good in considering a ROS...

I like the Bosch. Not much vibration, enough power, easy hookup to dust collector.

my vote is for the ROS20 also...
however if you plan on sanding for days on end ... get the 1250...

had the DeWalts...
they hurt/numb the hands and the carrier bearings wear out and aren't warrantied...
I can VOE compare the Bosch to Makita and Porter Cable also...
Bosch is the last sander standing BTW...
all of the others are dead and buried or just not used...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

What is it with Bosch tools? Their engineers must also be woodworkers. So many other companies seem to have no employees who actually work with wood. Thank goodness there are a few engineers left that do both.

Isn't that what Customer Service is all about?

Hi, sorry I missed you. I have gone to find myself, but if I return before I get back, please ask me to wait.
