I have a SPL-TXC122a shredder and I need the plastic drive gear Know where to get one?


I tried to get one for my machine but to no avail. So I fixed my gear myself. Go to your local hardware and buy a "Devcon" plastic welder. Not inexpensive.
You have a broken tooth on the plastic gear. Use a very small
drill bit the size of a big paper clip. drill three holes where the tooth broke off ( if part of the gear tooth is still there, file it down smooth.) Cut three pieces off a paper clip and insert them into the holes. Make them extend to below the gear and not to extend above the original tooth. Now you will make a tooth with the plastic
weld. Fill where the broken tooth was and let it set. Also fill where the paper clip extends below the tooth. This will give it more strength. Let it dry and harden. Now with a small file, file it to make it fit to the next tooth so it doesn't make a bump. " if you can before the mix dries, replace the gear and turn by hand the steel gears to make a smooth fit. Wipe any excess mix away. Good luck....
PS. mine is still working after three years....Hint do not try to shred
to many papers at one time. And once in a while put some 3 in one oil on a piece of paper in a sig sag motion and run it thru the machine. This will help to quiet the noise and oil the cutting blade.

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.

Ativa dx200d Shedder Plastic gear


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.

Mr.


I found a way to do a fix that should last for awhile. Put the large gear in a vise leaving room to partially knock the small broken gear through. I used a bolt the same size as the hole in the plastic, and tapped it in about 1/4 inch. This pushes some of the small gear through, exposing more of the usable part of it. I then cut (hacksawed) off about 3/8 inch of the broken part, put it back together and it works!..................Good luck, Sparky
