I inherited a stripped main helical gear in an Aurora AU1215XB
shredder yesterday. Once I got the wads of paper out, I tried it and
found that it was stripped. Looking more closely, it's about 1/3 of
the gear teeth which are gone. They did a number on it.
I googledit and pretty much got nothing. While I'm waiting to hear
back from Aurora, do you guys know of any existing small parts shops
who might stock this lovely nylon gear? It'd be a striped ass bitch
to make one on my buddy's mill, especially since I have a total of a
couple hours experience with it.
It's all Gunner's fault, not finding a teensy one I can toss in the
back of my pickemup and drag home so I can cut my eye teeth on a mill
of my own.
The drive motor of this thing looks like a small servo with a 5/32"
4-flute end mill built onto the end of the shaft. No wonder it took
off the teeth when some idiot fed in too much paper at once.
