      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.
