I bought one of these tools thinking that I'd get done with a sanding project quicker! WRONG!!! the sanding pad started coming off with in an hour, because the velcro melted. I had to resort to hand sanding and was very disappointed that I wasted time going to get this product and money spent on it! I believe if it was metal then it would have been worth it.
Bought as a replacement too. The velcro stopped working, yet many other vlcro attachments seem to last like the ones on random orbital sanders ?! As i have two pads now I have found that the problem is solved by attachimg the sanding sheets (which do last and last with silicone sealant and having different grades on different pads, but do not use hard setting glue as the lumps will scratch the work. I have doubts whether velcro is the best attachment as velcro has alot of movement in it. As most of the price seems to be sending these attachments to people singley, if i could have 6 with all differen grades attached it would solve the ptroblem.
This pad did not last even one day. The corners broke off. The Bosch sanding pads adhered so strongly at the corners that the loops on the backing pad tore off when the sanding pad was removed. The backer was useless after going through about 6 pieces of sandpaper.
The original pad sent with my MX30E kit was great and lasted well over a year but it was time to replace. I have purchased three additional pads SDP001 for sanding and the velco portion basically falls apart around the edges and separates from the pad. This is lower speed sanding with Bosch sanding pads for light wood (cedar) sanding prior to primer application. I contacted Bosch customer service number and was supposed to be sent a replacement pad which happened to be model 2608000492 which some reviews advised was a more correct replacement. I never received the replacement which was very dissapointing customer service. I did make my own pad by cutting the velco off a competitors pad and reapplying industrial velco with Goriila Glue. Works better than the original. Bottom line is cheap velco and glue seems to be the problem. This experience has soured me from purchasing anymore Bosch tools.
