Question about Bosch 1295DVS 5" Palm Variable Speed Random Orbit Sander/Polisher
Nothing is loose and there are no parts missing but the pad continues to bounce or vibrate no matter what speed I am using the sander at.....could it be the dust ring that sits under the pad that is bad....When the sander is off I can take the pad in my hand and move it or tilt it, that doesn't seem right to me as I can't do this with other sanders I have.

You did not specify how the sanding discs are meant to be attached to your sander's backing pad. My experience with this type of problem is material from the sanding process builds up on the backing pad and does not allow the sanding discs to adhere properly. If you have a velcro type system, clean the hooks on the sander's backing bad by soaking the pad's face in a plate of paint thinner for 20 to 30 minutes then use a wire brush to remove the rest of the paint physically. For adhesive pads clean the sander's backing pad surface with denatured alcohol. Do not use isopropryl or rubbing alcohol as this may not be 100% alcohol and could contain a lubricant like glycerin. When the sander's backing pad is completely dry and clean it will hold adhesive backed pads fine. Flaky paint is best scraped off before sanding, use a wide putty knife or a paint scaper to remove large flakes before sanding. This will minimize airborne dust and cleanup. For best results with adhesives, always keep your surfaces clean! Good luck and happy sanding! Michael Mittelsdorf

It's usually not the brushes but the commutator that needs cleaned. The commutator is the surface the brushes ride on. Go to Walgreens and buy a multi-surface nail file, one of the soft ones that are about 3/4" square with different colors for different grits. Don't start at the coarse grit!! Start at the medium grit and lightly drag it over each section in a smooth arcing motion, when the commutator surface is shiny it's clean, then replace the brushes with new ones.

I'm not familiar with that particular model, but they are virtually all replaced the same way. There are a few screws through the pad into the base. Simply remove them and screw the new pad on. You'll see that it's quite simple once you get the new pad in your hands.
Just be careful not to strip the head of the screw: use the right size screwdriver tip.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread. If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!

looking at the breakdown and the length of the screw my best guess would be the drive coupling. Part # 2600328027 which appears to screw onto the armature. Let me know if you need anything further and if I have helped with your request would you please rate my response accordingly
