Description

The dust extraction isn't the greatest, and it has chucked a disc once (ever) - after I put it on not realizing it was caked in dust. Even at 83 years of age I still enjoy doing some diy and it was high time I had a new sander espcially one that is comfortable in the hand. Measured values determined in accordance with EN 60745 Vibration total values (vector sum of three directions).

Fitted with variable speed control to slow the speed for more delicate sanding, the machine has minimal vibration and is very comfortable to use with two handles; if required the front handle can be removed. Thus choosing this PEX 400 instead of the PEX 300 is a compromise as I know it will hardly get used as compared to other sanders already in the collection. I find using this handle together with the main handle more natural and I could apply more even a pressure to the work as compared to the two (ie one less handle) provided on PEX300. Enjoy comfortable working in any orientation thanks to the lightweight design, second handle for additional guidance, and low vibration. The integrated Microfilter System conveys the dust at high speed directly through the sanding sheet and sanding pad, trapping it in the microfilter box.The Bosch electronic speed control enables the user to set the sanding rate by using the setting wheel to choose speeds from 4,000 to 21,200 sanding movements per minute. Re sourcing velcro hook sheets, I don't know where we got the sheets I mentioned above from as they were originally located by someone else and after testing one lot he was responsible for further purchases. I still needed a replacement sander (I had a faithful little makita which also chose a similar time to die, but at least that was about 15 years old and on its third base plate). Keep the edge of the pad away from adjacent surfaces and corners as repeated impact will damage the pad. This sander replaced a Triton 1/4 sheet orbital sander, it was struggling and died on the job (less then 6 months old).

The Bosch Paper Assistant and the Velcro-type fastening system make it easier than ever to change the sanding paper. They mention that it doesn't fit properly, it's a pain to fit properly back on, and it'd be better if it was smaller.

The required sanding speed is dependent on the material and can be optimised through experimentation.First random orbital sander I've ownedI bought my PEX 400 about 15 years ago to sand a plywood dinghy and although it hasn't had a great deal of work since I have kept using it, no issues with Velcro on the backing plate, the little dust filter clogs quickly and it has finally worn out a backing plate ( Velcro was still working).

It is easy to change sanding disks and the front handle, which, if necessary, is removable, make sanding large objects very easy and without exertion.I don't expect that this sander will replace my belt sander or even my finishing sander, that would be too much to expect. The finish that can be achieved is very impressive; with its random orbit action it tends to eliminate any tell-tale signs that a power sander was ever used on the project.
