Details

Bosch revolutionized their technology with the 1297D 1/4 in. Sheet Orbital Finish Sander by making it quick and easy to load sandpaper on the deck. By Integrating their Sheetlock sandpaper attachment system, the user can pen the front and rear rubberized paper clamps, insert the edge of the paper in the front, wrap and clamp. What sets the 1297D apart from any other technology out there is that as the rear clamp closes, it pulls the sandpaper taut and flat against the bed. This vital development prevents wrinkles, creases and tears which increases the life of sandpaper without having to pay double the cost for stick on paper.
Features:
  • 2.0 amp motor, 12,000 OPM ensures fast, smooth results on all surfaces
  • Rubberized paper clamps for firm no-slip grip
  • Accepts stick-on paper
  • Bosch microfiler dust canister with integrated paper filter for optimal filtering system of fine dust by capturing particles as small as a 1/2-micron
  • 3-point counterbalance for low vibration for maximum comfort
  • Ergonomic soft grip top for comfort and control
  • Flush sanding ability sands close to vertical surfaces on three sides
  • Dust sealed rocker switch keeps dust out and provides easy on/off actuation
  • All ball bearing construction offers long life and smooth operation
Includes:
  • 1/4 in. Sheet Orbital Finish Sander - 1297D
  • Punchplate - 2 610 920 650
  • Sandpaper Sheet

Wonderful sander. Light. Easy to handle.

By HandCraftedCuttingBoards

from Niceville, FL, United States

Comments about Bosch 1/4-Sheet Orbital Finish Sander:

I have had this sander since April 2012. I have made almost 200 cutting boards, a rocking chair, a side cabinet, a murphy bed with two side cabinets, a Franklin Chair, and numerous other crafts. Finally, the front rubber clamp cover won't stay on. Just went on Bosch site, found it ordered it for a reasonable price and shipping price. Good dust collection; easy to change paper.

My First Bosch Product

By Imakethingswithwood

from Oklahoma City, OK, United States

Comments about Bosch 1/4-Sheet Orbital Finish Sander:

Purchased this sander as a recommendation from a fellow woodworker as i was unfamiliar with Bosch power tools i took a chance. I have used the sander for a while now on projects from sanding and refinishing an old cedar chest to finishing Corian counter tops. So far so good and this has led me to purchase multiple other Bosch power tools based on the quality of this little sander. I have had the sander for several years now and have yet to experience any of the previous issues with the baseplate,not sure if it has changed in design since i purchased mine. In my experience it has been a solid purchase and for the money if it broke today i would buy it again.

Rubber wears

By Ronald

from Butler, NJ, United States

Comments about Bosch 1/4-Sheet Orbital Finish Sander:

I used this sander 3 times and, at first, I was impressed how tight and secure it held the sandpaper. Unfortunately, the rubber, that overlays the front clamp deteriorated and has rendered this unit useless. I searched for a site that would offer a replacement part but to no avail.

Comments about Bosch 1/4-Sheet Orbital Finish Sander:

I like the quiet operation. I especially like the paper fastening system. It is quick and easy to change the paper, and doesn't come loose.
