Bosch OS50VC 120-Volt 3.4-Amp Variable Speed 2-Sheet Orbital Finishing Sander with Vibration Control
Bosch’s 1/2 sheet sander stands out from the crowd for its excellent dust collection system. It really doesn’t couple easily with a dust collection system, but that’s okay, as the integral through the pad system works extremely well. The dust canister is hard, with an integrated paper filter for optimum dust filtering down to 1/2 micron. Not small enough to be considered HEPA, but pretty darn close.
Bosch has added a variable speed control to the powerful 3.4 amp motor on this one, an improvement over their last model. Set the speed, pull the trigger and there’s even a trigger lock to hold it on. Bosch has also put a lot into vibration control, making this tool much more comfortable to work with. Their SheetLoc sandpaper holder works extremely well and you can flush sand up against a vertical edge on three sides. The extra thick closed cell foam pad conforms to the work surface extremely well.
