Question about As Seen On TV Magic Bullet Food Processor
The plastic gear broke and i need a repair
So, rather than pay for an entire new motor and wait for two weeks forthem to get it to me, I just made a new gear/broken thing. I crazyglued the old piece back together again and used it to make a plastermold...like the way people do with their kid's hands. Then I filledthe mold with JB Weld and let it dry. After that, I drilled a hole inthe new JB weld gear so that it would fit over the metal part in thebullet(that actually spins).
Glued it on (with more jb weld) and the thing has been making my smoothies and grinding my coffee with no more issues.
Sounds complicated, but it wasn't too bad. Funny thing is, the newpiece is probably heaps stronger than the cheap plastic thing thatbroke in the first place.
Do it yourself, or e-mail me: firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm tired of made-to-break products and could make anyone else one of these things for around 10 bucks!

There is a quick fix, but you have to sacrifice a blade to get its rubber gear for the Power Base:
