The Bosch Corner/Detail Orbital Sander uses "Hook and Loop" sanding sheets available here at Home Depot as well as most hardware stores, especially those outlets with both retail locations as well as an online presence.

The Bosch Corner/Detail Orbital Sander uses "Hook and Loop" sanding sheets available here at Home Depot as well as most hardware stores, especially those outlets with both retail locations as well as an online presence.
Not all sanding sheets are available at any one location, however, so you must do a little searching/browsing for the less common sheets. You may find the white (paint stripping) sheets a bit harder to find than the red (sanding/smoothing) sheets. If you cannot find the exact sheet you need for a given project, you can always purchase square hook and loop sanding sheets and cut them to size.
Here is a complete list of available sanding sheets for the Bosch, along with the manufacturer item number, name and package count. Where available, I have included the location(s) you may purchase them:
Bosch (Model #1294VSK) Corner Detail Orbital Sander Kit - Sanding Pads
Long Narrow "Finger" Pads: (Hard to reach narrow areas):
SDNR000 60/120/240 Assorted Detail Narrow Sanding Sheet in Red (6-Pack)
SDNR040 40 Grit Detail Narrow Hook and Loop Sanding Sheet in Red (5-Pack)
SDNR060 60 Grit Detail Narrow Hook and Loop Sanding Sheet in Red (5-Pack)
SDNR080 80 Grit Detail Narrow Hook and Loop Sanding Sheet in Red (5-Pack)
SDNR120 120 Grit Detail Narrow Hook And Loop Sanding Sheet In Red (5-Pack)
SDNR180 180 Grit Detail Narrow Hook And Loop Sanding Sheet In Red (5-Pack)
SDNR240 240 Grit Detail Narrow Hook And Loop Sanding Sheet In Red (5-Pack)
White Paint Triangle Pads: (Pads designed to strip and sand painted surfaces):
SDTW042 Detail Triangle, Hook & Loop Sanding Sheet, White, 40 Grit, 25 Pack
SDTW062 Detail Triangle, Hook & Loop Sanding Sheet, White, 60 Grit, 25 Pack
SDTW082 Detail Triangle, Hook & Loop Sanding Sheet, White, 80 Grit, 25 Pack
SDTW122 Detail Triangle, Hook & Loop Sanding Sheet, White, 120 Grit, 25 Pack
SDTW182 Detail Triangle, Hook & Loop Sanding Sheet, White, 180 Grit, 25 Pack
SDTW242 Detail Triangle, Hook & Loop Sanding Sheet, White, 240 Grit, 25 Pack
Red Wood Triangle Pads: (Pads designed to smooth and sand bare wood surfaces):
SDTR042 Detail Triangle, Hook & Loop Sanding Sheet, Red, 40 Grit, 25 Pack
SDTR062 Detail Triangle, Hook & Loop Sanding Sheet, Red, 60 Grit, 25 Pack
SDTR082 Detail Triangle, Hook & Loop Sanding Sheet, Red, 80 Grit, 25 Pack
SDTR122 Detail Triangle, Hook & Loop Sanding Sheet, Red, 120 Grit, 25 Pack
SDTR182 Detail Triangle, Hook & Loop Sanding Sheet, Red, 180 Grit, 25 Pack
SDTR242 Detail Triangle, Hook & Loop Sanding Sheet, Red, 240 Grit, 25 Pack
All of the above may be purchased at Ace Tool Online with the only exception being SDTW122 which I cannot find anywhere other than at Amazon. The Ace website is roughly $3 - $4 cheaper per package than Home Depot but again, you can find bargains anywhere, especially here on the Home Depot and eBay. Search around -- these go on sale every spring, then again after the summer. Of course, you can always browse the Bosch website. For the red (sanding/smoothing) sheets, please see http://www.boschtools.com/Products/Accessories/Pages/BoschProductListCategory.aspx?catId=1319&subCatId=1618 while the white paint stripping sheets can be found at http://www.boschtools.com/Products/Accessories/Pages/BoschProductListCategory.aspx?catId=1319&subCatId=1617 and if all else fails, simply give the Bosch Factory Service Center a call at 1-800-346-4103.

All attachments use hook and loop sand paper. Some are the standard triangle and a narrow triangle pad. The standard triangle can be found at home depot and most hardware stores, the narrow sanding pads are difficult to find I have found them on-line @acme tools.

Answer: 
I think the sound is fine. I have tinnitus and loud noises exacerbate the condition, but this sander does not bother me at all. Now, if I can get the starlings (birds) to stop pestering me, I'd enjoy the sanding a little more...!

Answer: 
I can only assume that by 'unbearable' you mean that the bearings are squaling. The unit (if newer) should only sound like a vibrator with a loud humming or buzzing sound. When the bearings are squaling, then it sounds like high pitched sqeal - like fingernails on a chalkboard. If it is a new unit, and sounds like anything other than a buzzing, return it for a replacement.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 19 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Detail Sander On an impulse, I purchased a Ryobi detail sander at the store and was disappointed in ten seconds. I then visited this site and read customer reviews for that product and was not surprised to find that most purchasers had the same experience (the sanding sheets do not stick to the pad or they stick too much). I returned the Ryobi the next day and a very helpful Home Depot employee assisted me in ordering a Bosch detail sander. It arrived sooner than expected (woo hoo!) and I am completely impressed with this little sander. It works hard without showing signs of overheating or skipping a beat. It's steady, easy to use (even with small hands), and comes in a sturdy carrying case. It's worth paying for the best tools and I love this one. Buy something great and you will enjoy your work! June 22, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by This is a very good product for some of the things I do, however........ You cannot buy the sanding pads for this at a Home Depot store. They have to be ordered online. The tool is good. The support is non existante. February 18, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great tool for corner sanding! This sander is perfect for sanding inside corners. It is a little bulky but very versatile. The ability to turn the sanding pad allows me to take advantage of more of the sand paper. I also use it as an edge sander and I can sand right up to the inside edge of the project. I am very satisfied with this Bosch sander! March 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Much needed replacement sander This was a replacement for a identical model. Excellent price and product April 21, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kitchen Cabinet Refinishing Smooth running sander with great attachments. The finger attachments are extremely useful however replacement sanding pads are not available locally in my area. Need some ........... they can be ordered through Amazon! Why the finger sanding pads are offered in 80 grit only is beyond me. The vacuum port is a bit MIcky Mouse. There's no locking mechanism to secure the hose to the tool so don't be surprised when the hose connector pops off and falls to the floor. Might try wrapping electrician tape around the joint during lond sanding periods. All that said, I still like the tool. March 11, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A fine choice The sander is very well suited to long periods of use. It works well at all angles with no undue stress or fatigue on the operator. April 14, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Work horse Fairly expensive but appears to be durable and more than capable of doing the job well. I hve used the less expensive sanders in the past and been dissatisified. March 26, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesom Workhorse I bought one of these beauties for my business in 2004 to replace the Skill version (same pad size and function but a lighter build) and have been amazed. I use it to sand all my baseboard and trims and it has never faultered at all. With the hook and eye pads, changing sanding pads is a flash and it only requires an occasional air blow-out to keep it performing like new. After 9 years it still works great which is amazing since it has been used commercially. This is 'The Best' sander I have, including my many pad and belt sanders. I recommend it highly.
