Review

Instead of pivoting from the center like the Fein MultiMaster, the Bosch 1294VSK's sanding pad orbits like the pad of a finish sander (at 13,000-19,000 orbits per minute).
This orbiting action results in a nearly scratch-free finish. And yet, the tool removes material almost as aggressively as a random-orbit sander. The five interchangeable pads and extensions provided with the 1294VSK kit swap quickly and easily, thanks to a tool-free connection. We used this feature more often, though, to rotate a fresh corner of the sandpaper to the front point, where the abrasive wears fastest. Those extensions all serve specific purposes: with the extension pad, we sanded under the toe space of a cabinet; the narrow extension fit well between the spindles on an end table. The oval extension isn't flat, but gently curved, and works great for sanding contoured pieces. We only have one concern about the narrow extensions: none of our local tool stores carry replacement abrasives in stock, but they could order them for me. You can also find them online through the dealer locator on Bosch's website.
