Tip & How-To about Industrial Paper Shredders Office Equipment & Supplies

How to save repairs for paper shredders

When purchasing a new paper shredder, analyze your needs and purchase the largest shredder to fit your need and budget. If you buy one that "says" it can handle 10 sheets at a time, only put 6-7 sheets at a time to prevent overloading your shredder. Always use shredder oil to lubricate your blades and that will also prevent binding and eliminate most jams.

do you ever need to lube a memorex paper shredder


ALL shredders need to be lubricated. When metal turns, it creates friction that, over time, can cause the blades to warp. Just like you have to add oil to a car, shredders must be oiled as well. You can buy bottles of oil at your local office supply store. Just squirt across the top of the blades. Or pour some on a plate, dip a piece of paper in it, then shred. If you want less mess, purchase the pre-lubricated sheets that you can just drop in and shred. Make sure to shred in reverse about half way through to get the best results.
