Girish from Delhi writes about his problems and work:
"One question: I have been using a Bosch GHO 26-82 portable planer. It has reversible blades, which worked really well for the first few uses with pine wood. But when I used it on teak, it wore out in 2-3 days. This is really confounding, considering the replacement blades cost Rs. 420 a pair, which makes no sense at all. I don't know if I am doing something wrong (though it didn't seem so with pine wood) or if this really is a problem with these blades, on hard wood.
Another issue I am facing is with a Bosch random orbital sander (model Bosch GEX 150 AC). The velcro on the sander rubber pad for sandpaper disc attachments doesn't grip any more. I was hoping there would be a way to reuse the sander pad. Replacements cost about Rs. 1250. I tried brushing the velcro with a nylon brush, but that didn't help much. My only grouse is the steep cost for those parts that face much wear and tear.
