Question about Fellowes P400C-2 Shredder
First plastic gear driven from motor pinion has stripped teeth; needs replacement.
I have a simple solution if you can think outside of the box. When my gear stripped, I chucked away the electrics, and now drive the shredder via a crank handle on the side. It gives good excercise, and isn't difficult to turn with anything up to 6 or so sheets.
If you want to do this, open the machine, and remove the smaller gear at the opposite end of the drive (take off the circlip) to expose a hex shaped shaft. You can also chuck all of the electrics, and all but the two gears that are on the shredder shafts. Then cut a hole through both the top casing, and through the bucket, to line up with the shaft end and allow a 9/16 socket to pass through. When reassembled, there is sufficient room to drive the mechanism with a standard 3/8 drive ratchet, although you could make a fancier drive with a handle on.

Emailed Fellowes, who replied very dismissively, "Please note that we do not have spares for this machine." There are many complaints about the stripping of Fellowes gears, and many comments that the engineering is rubbish. ©Brooke Harvey 2010
Incidentally, FixYa seemed to be asking me to give you my credit card details to receive a seven-day free trial. Presumably you are not serious.
You also want to assume copyright on my comments. Not so; it stays with me unless I transfer it to someone else.
