Re: Main drive gear is damaged on and Ativa shedder
If you main gear drive is broken you probably had a paper jam, so your shredder blade gear will break soon. By the time you purchase the part and pay for the shipping it would cost just about the same as gettin a new one. Then you will not have to wotty about anything esle breaking after you get this part because of the stress you put on the motor and other gears. I hope this helps you.

Drill 3 or 4 holes along the path of where each gear tooth is missing. The holes should be sized to about 75% of the width of the tooth at its base. Drive appropriate sized screws into the holes. Clip off the tops of the screws to match the original tooth height. File the sides of the screws at an angle to match the original tooth sides. You are essentially replacing the missing gear tooth with three or four screws filed to match the tooth profile.
