Item Description

Well-executed design combined with solid, reliable performance make this Bosch belt sander a tool with noticeable performance advantages. The Bosch features a magnesium-and-plastic housing that’s lightweight yet durable. The tool is nicely balanced, comfortable, and easy to operate–important features in a tool that’s often used for long periods of time for removing large amounts of stock. The Bosch comes with a cast-aluminum platen–so there’s none of the warping that affects stamped-steel platens–and it sands perfectly flat right out of the box. Like many of the sanders in this class, the motor on the 1274 is aligned with the belt edge to allow flush sanding into corners. The tool’s only drawback is that visibility is limited when sanding into tight corners, but that’s a small minus when weighed against all the pluses. The belt-changing system works well–we didn’t suffer any spring pinches–and the tracking adjustment tracks the new belt quickly and keeps it in place. There’s a variable-speed dial built right into the trigger switch, which makes adjusting the belt speed fast and convenient. Wood magazine tested 10 3-by-21-inch sanders and liked the 1274DVS best. We agree that it’s a great tool.
