Question about Bosch 1295DVS 5" Palm Variable Speed Random Orbit Sander/Polisher

Open Question

The pad on my bosch 1295dvs sander seems to bounce and vibrate all over as I'm sanding..It has ruined several projects...I have replaced the main bearing with no luck...any ideas on what else it w

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

SOURCE: CLEANING SANDER BUSHINGS

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.

SOURCE: changing the rubber pad on the Bosch PEX 12 AE

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!

SOURCE: My Bosch 3107dvs

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

How do I remove the backing pad on the Bosch PDA 100 sander. What does the red slider button do at the front of the pad, on the back plastic side? Does this remove the pad. Do I need to pull it off or...


Piece of cake. Just push the red slider as far as it will go in the direction of the arrow. Look for the seam where the pad attaches to the sander plate, that is where it separates. Give the rubber a little tug, and it should come off quite easily. Pop the new pad on, lock it in place by pushing the slider button as far as it will go (in the opposite direction to the arrow) and job's a good 'un!

The pad between the bottom plate and sanding belt is worn, torn, and folded/disfigured on one corner. What is it's function and where can I get a replacement?


That pad is usually made of cork or graphite It's used to give the back side of the sanding belt a soft and slippery surface to run on so it won't over heat/tear and fail. The part you need is P/N 2601098037 Any Bosch service center will be able to get one for you. Go to BoschTools.com and look under "find a service center"

Bosch ROS not powering on


Checked the net for answers and got a couple of maybe's. 1.) Brushes, 2.) variable speed control, which some were direct wiring.
I tried the brushes firs and that has solved the problem for now. I guess the brushes stuck or somehow lost contact.
I got a parts diagram and found the brushes (will be covered with dust). Took the springs out and stretched them a little, replaced and the sander turned on. You will need to remove the top cover to do this. Verdit is still out as to long term performance. Not a great start.

My particular sander was lightly used (second project) and it has not been abused.

Unit will not power on. Tried different circuits. Has had time to cool, but should not have been hot. Tool has had limited light use. Has not been dropped.


check the board with the variable speed control knob, mine failed once and would not power on. I believe I started having the same problem for the second time today.

Bosch 3283 dvs sander has unbalanced spin


This means the sander has been droped and the pad support and/or the bearing orbit has been bent, maybe even the motor shaft. Never leave any power tool sitting on a bench, always set it on the floor, it will end up there at some time anyways. You can try replacing a part at a time and spend a lot of money and time, but is it worth it?

I can't get the sandpaper to stay on the pad.


It sounds like you need to replace the backing pad on the sander. Over time the velcro (hook & Loop) on the backing pad will loose its stick. A Bosch service cneter can supply you with a new one, just let them know which model you have. If its an adhesive back sanding pad the same thing applys just get a new one. Hope this helps

How many Types of Sanders?


Belt sanders: Belt sanders are useful for removing large quantities of wood stock quickly. They are generally used for rough sanding before fine finishing with a smaller sander. Palm sanders: Palm sanders are ultra-portable and useful for finishing small projects. Orbit sanders: Orbit sanders are usually more heavy-duty than palm sanders and appropriate for larger projects.
