About this deal

The Bosch GEX 125-1 AE (the 120V version is coded ROS20VSC) random orbit sander is an excellent tool for removing material and finishing wood. The Bosch Palm Random Orbit Sander stands shoulders above its competition in performance, dust control, and ease of use. The sander comes with an 80-grain sanding pad which is a great starting point, but most projects require pads of a few different grains, so you’ll also need to acquire additional ones. According to the Bosch FAQ section, Bosch blue products carry a twelve-months-from-date-of-purchase warranty.

When you’re done using a pad, all you have to do is find the space between the disc and the main pad, and then peel it back.

The pad affixes to the sander with the help of 35,000 long-life hooks (similar to Velcro) which ensure a firm grip that never falters. With the more powerful motor, there was no stalling with my vacuum with the tool collar fully open or closed.

I have been operating like this with other sanders anyway – they don’t stall, but to reduce the likely hood of swirlies. The Milwaukee won the speed test but after the ~3minutes, I had to wait 20minutes or so for the vibration tingles to leave my hands. Bosch's integral pad dampening system, a pad braking system, is designed to eliminate the most common complaint of random orbit sander users; swirl marks on the workpiece.more surface area means things get sanded quicker, and there are few spots where I can’t get a 150mm sander into but I can get a 125mm sander.
