Bosch's ROS65VC random-orbit sander is designed for rough or finish sanding of wood, paint, and just about anything else that can be sanded with hook-and-loop paper. Its distinguishing feature is how little it vibrates. In most tools there are hard connections between motor and housing, but in this one the motor is isolated from the exterior by hard foam blocks. The result is smooth and nearly vibration-free sanding. The 3.3-amp variable-speed tool can be connected to a vacuum hose or used with the supplied dust filter and collection canister. It comes with a 5- or 6-inch pad or in a kit containing both sizes.
