Source For Royal Shredder Parts?

    Hey All,

    I having trouble finding a source to replace a plastic gear in a Royal
    CX7000 paper shredder. Anyone got a source? It's the first gear that
    runs against the motor shaft - which ironically is grooved just like a
    fluted endmill bit.

    I think Royal used a plastic gear to guarantee obsolescence. This is
    somewhat confirmed by Royal claiming they don't sell parts directly to
    customers for safety reasons and suggesting that I buy their new $100
    shredder that features all steel gears. The original box for the broken
    one advertised steel gears too, apparently it just didn't mean all of them.

    He wants $15 for a replacement gear - another plastic one guaranteed
    to self-destruct within 6 months.
