Default Bosch HP2200 shredder blade sharpening?

Anyone got any experience? they resemble a large cog with multiple
cutting edges so no flat blade you can just run a grinder over!

No idea! When you find out I'd be interested. I've got a Screwfix cheapy
version (Titan) which I've used for a couple of years and is very good.
I note from the manual of the HP2200 that they don't offer a new "cog"
as a replacement - just the pressure plate - and there doesn't seem to
be a cog available at the Bosch spares website.

Still, at least the Bosch manual tells you how to dismantle the shredder
to get at the cog. I don't even have that info for the Titan!

I have never sharpened mine, and it remains good enough for the
purpose - though I have had to replace the condenser. Yes, it
stops cutting as cleanly, but it still breaks up the material.
Has yours stopped doing even that?

There's this, pressure plate and cutter blade together, third item
down, probably costing as much as you paid for the shredder in the
first place!

Found it on the Bosch spares support site too - £120.67 including VAT.

I don't actually have a Bosch, but I wonder if that part would fit the
Titan when mine wears out. I'm not, however, willing to risk 120 quid to
find out! Not that I need to, as the Titan has been fine, handling 35 -
40mm branches without problem. It looks like the Mac Allister
replacement is nowhere near as reliable.

Because the Bosch 2200 if magic I actually have 2!! and a spare blade. I
just wondered if there was a special way of doing it. I had a go
yesterday and ran a grind wheel lightly across the rear of each blade
and its come up a treat(cut my fingers getting back in!) readjusted the
plate and all is back to normal
