I'm new to this FixYa site, but a search for parts got me to it, and your offer. IGNORE the products name on this message; it was the only one on the menu close to the one you (and) we are talking about, the PS60-2.
If your offer is still good, I'm interested, as I am trying to bring back from near dead one of those Fellowes shredders just like your failed one. Ours suffers not from wear, but tear . . . abuse by (college) student assistants, and it is the plastic case, top and bottom, that are whacked and cracked and need replacement
If you're still willing to send parts, are you interested in sending just those (much lighter than with the real business/metal part? I'd pay whatever it cost, so long as YOUR plastic parts are still in good shape.
If can do, e-mail email@example.com, please, and thanks in advance.
Great! The plastics on ours are in good working order, albeit a few scratches here-and-there, and internally 2 of the 6 seats that the machinery sit on are fractured, but this isn't a problem when everything is all screwed down. Were you also interested in bin that the shredder unit sits/slots on top of? Ours is a little warped but still serviceable. I am located in the UK, and from your email address I am assuming you are in Rock Island, USA.
Having stripped off all the parts the shell (excl. the bin) still weighs 950grams (just over 2 lbs!) The postage would be £16.80 ($28.80) using our domestic service, with DHL it is approx. £37 ($63.50), with some research I am sure I could get it cheaper. Are these prohibitive prices? Cheers, Simon

Can I get my Fellowes paper shredder repaired or purchase parts for it? The majority of Fellowes personal shredders (small shredders that can fit under a desk) are repairable and will have parts available. If you would like to check your model shredder to determine if parts are available, please click the "Ask a Question" tab above, and advise the model of shredder, the shredder's serial number and a description of the part needed. The serial number will be located on the bottom side of the shredder head below the bar code.
and 'Ask a Question' give personal details, and that will give you details if spares are available
If this unit is worth it to you, you can build your own gear. Here is a link to get plastic repair materials to make plastic parts. This site also will have materials for repairing plastics.
Another possibility is to search Ebay for a unit like yours which has other problems. Never can tell... it may be there. Make sure you ask for the model of the unit in your search (on the NET as well. The serial in this case is not needed.
