Answer: 
You buy normal sandpaper sheets of the coarseness you desire or require, and then cut them into quarters by folding in half lengthwise, then cutting on the fold line. With the two halves fold in half again and cut the fold line. You will be left with 4 pieces that are 1/4s of the original sheet of sandpaper. That is why this sander is named a 1/4 sheet finishing sander. This is a very economical approach Read More

My dust container will not close fully and so saw dust and plaster dust goes all over the place. The part is listed as discontinued - yet Bosch still sells this sander. What gives?

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great finishing sander. I have exhausted 3 similar sanders from various manufacturers. This model is the best I have used by far. My favorite feature is the paper clamp, but the low niose level is a very close second. May 4, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by be prepared to wait when you need replacement pad. H.D. does NOT carry part. Not even online. I am generally satisfied with this product. My major gripe is with Home Depot for selling everything under the sun but not making the replacement pad available. I could not find the part online anywhere. Had to call manufacturer customer service. That part was not bad, It the the fact that I would very much like to use the tool sooner than later. For you convenience here is the part number, 2610920628. I used at Bosch's online store. I hope this does not dissuade you from buying this tool, I just want to make sure you are not left without one when thinking ahead will help. I just ordered 3 of them so this should not happen to me in the future. I hate wasting MY time. Good luck. October 8, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Did not last I initially loved this product, it held the sheet tight and was great. However after using it for several jobs the design flaw showed. The rear clamping rubber gets sanded down by the paper and then it will no longer hold the sandpaper. I am very careful with my tools and would say I've only used this product lightly and the way it was intended to be used. The rear clamp needs to be redesigned. The motor works great, but without paper it doesn't mean much. February 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great tool but no bag? This is an excellent sheet sander. It is the easiest and fastest sander to change paper with, and the vibration to the hand is minimal. As a hardwood floorong professional, I use these constantly and this is by far my favorite sheet sander. My only disappointment was this one did not comd with a carrying bag. I've owned 5 prior and they all had bags. Otherwise great tool! May 7, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The sander works very well. It does exactly what it is designed to do.......it sands. My last sander was a craftsman which I used sparingly for probably 15 years. I expect to get the same service out of this. Bosch makes a good product. Time will tell. July 30, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Trouble free for over 6 years I was in the market for a while when I made this purchase to do some light sanding on small projects. I liked the fact that I could use 1/4 sheets of sandpaper and get 8 quarter sized sheets off of one standard sheet of paper. The paper slides into a tang that holds the front part of the paper, and then slides underneath two plastic rollers and locks in place with a pivoting arm on the side. Ergonomics is great, and there is very little fatigue while using. Once the piece of paper is attached, you press the machine onto a plastic piece to open the sanding holes for ventilation so the paper doesn't clog. After 6 years of using it doing casual woodwoorking, it has served me well. Only complaint that I have is that the plastic rollers on the rear that hold the paper in place have been sanded off, and it appears that I have to purchase a complete bottom piece of the unit. $32 for a replacement part is very fair. Bosch tools are quality-built, and I feel that I would not hesitate to recommend this sander to anyone looking to get one that isn't outrageously expensive, and is quality built. May 5, 2013
