« Part 109: November update - Ramblin' Part 110 of Shop stuff series Part 111: Something Roubo-esque »

This week I am checking out the Bosch 1250 DEVS sander/polisher. I am calling it the sander for people who don’t like sanding. The 6” pad covers significantly more area than your average 5” ROS, and the aggressive mode makes short work of rough surfaces. I don’t have the wiring in my shop done, so I couldn’t hook it up to a shop vac to see how the dust collection works. It would be nice if it had a bag for those situations.

Good work Jim, did the SIL spring for a new sander for you?

I have a older version of a RAS a Metabo SXE 450 Duo which is a 1998 version its certainly worthwile going to 6” however I find the Metabo a bit on the heavy side. I coud never really get the duo functioning correctly or see some difference when I switched it over from one mode to the other.

Good presentation, maybe the wife could make you a dust bag. Bad news airborne sanding dust!

Have you got any 36 Grit you could try out on Jerryilin’s head for me!

Ahhh, I just filter the dust through a cigarette….lol. I don’t have any 36 grit, but if you send some I am up for a bit of experimenting. I reported the post as spam a few times, but nothing has happened.
