Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
I have a P55c Fellowes Shredder, the engine runs but it wont shred because the teeth have sheared from one of the intenal plastic drive wheeels - the wheel is a combined large and small drive wheel.
Is there a web site or phone number to order parts in the UK ?
Thanks for your help.
I suggest using Belzona (metal compound). Mix it with its hardner, paste it over the broken gear (dont worry if it gets over a couple of other gears. Let Belzona sink and dry (4-5hours). Get a Dremel drill with a fine blade on it and cut accurately where the teeth are meant to be. Voila, you have fixed your gear.

i had the same problem on the fellowes fs5m model. i opened up the machine and found that the plastic gear was completely worn on one side.
i just found this website online for spare parts: http://www.wheelermachines.com/fellowes_parts.htm
haven't called them yet. if they don't have it i might try the belzona compound.

You most likely have several teeth broken off the drive gear that drives the cutting block. Not too difficult to replace but you need some special tools. A deep well socket (I think it's about a 3/8") to remove the cutting block and replace the broken gear. The gear should be available from a Fellowes dealer, or they might sell it to you direct if there is no dealer near you.
Let me know if this helps.
