New Sander - Bosch ROS20VSC
I ordered the Bosch ROS20VSC last week, it arrived today. Came in a canvas bag, included an 80 grit disc, instruction manual, and the vacuum hose adapter. My initial impression was that it felt well built and ergonomic.
One pleasant surprise was that I didn't realize it was variable speed when I ordered it.
This was after sanding all 4 sides of my high chair back spindles, only a little dust on the out side of the filter box, hardly any to be found on the work/work surface.
You can see the build up against the filter inside, the dust chute was caked up about 1/4" thick around the outer edges, so seems to have a pretty strong push of air blowing to the filter.
This is with the vacuum hose attached to my DC.
I only sanded down some of the spindles, but was like night and day from my old B&D ROS. The vibration is minimal, the filter works really well, and the dust hose connection works even better. It's what I'd expect from Bosch, yet the $69 price tag was a whole lot less than I would expected it to be for the quality.
