I got mine at Home Depot for peanuts. Chose the nearest oversized inch-sized set and gently filed 
them on a 400 grit sandpaper on the granite surface plate, that I have at work. I think, the OEM 
brushes have an 8x5 crossection.

You need quite a powerful soldering iron in order to resolder those brushes. Bosch uses a b*tch 
of a solder (it probably is very vibration-resistant).

My 200 is on it's 4th year with those brushes.
