Question about Shredder 1052 (Cross-Cut)
It is jammed and trying the reverse and forward does not work. I got this from a friend and I have oil and lubrication sheets from an old shredder long gone... but do not know where and how to lubricate this particular model and if I should
thanks any and all help would be greatly appreciated since I would like to give this back to my friend in working condition.

When you set it to reverse, it Should propel the paper back out the top, where it's jammed. If it does not, remove power to the unit, and get ready for the long laborious process of removing the jam with a pair of tweezers. A hazard of paper shredders, maintenance can be a bit on the silly side.

The doc feed asm needs to be rebuilt. Only white lithium grease is used to lube the gears and avery light oil on the shafts. All parts are available from brother. I can get the parts if you have trouble obtaining them. It is relatively easy to rebuild and I charge in my area of Clearwater Florida, about 100.00 parts and labor.

I personally work with Fellowes brand shredders, but it sounds like you have a paper feed sensor issue. This may be a mechanical or electronic sensor located in the center of the paper feed slot. If it is electronic it may just need cleaning(qtip dipped in rubbing alchohol. If it is a mechanical sensor check to make sure it has not been broken or it may be stuck because of paper that has become wedged behind it(you may need to jiggle the switch a few times to free it). If none of this works you may have a burned out switch or a bad pc board, contact manufacturer for more info.

two ways, first take a light oil (3 in 1) and scribble a pattern on a piece of paper and pass it through the cutting heads do this a couple of times, this can be done as you shred just put a little oil on papers you are about to shred from time to time.
second, if it is a light duty machine, with plastic parts, then pass some waxed paper through the shredder to clean and lube the heads, this also works for your 3 hole punches.

Shredders became popular when the identity theft thing started happening and to save money they stopped making them with quiet, powerful induction motors and now it's almost impossible to find a consumer model without the poor quality loud motors that don't have enough to power to operate the machine once it's a little dirty. Anyway, unplug it, and you're doing this at your own risk, take the shredder off the trash can or its own waste bin and turn it over. If it's straight cut shredder you will probably be able to see the slot where the shredder paper exits the blade area. If it's a crosscut shredder there might be a door that will close over the blades to cut you from getting cut. Respect that, but open this door, and see if there's bits of paper jammed up around the blades. Wear some protective gloves and use pliers or some kind of tool to dig out the compacted trash, being careful not to damage or bend the blades. Now you should pick up some shredder oil from your local office store, or see link to order. Follow the instructions on the oil, and this will make your shredder run with a lot less stress. This is only a temporary fix however. In a couple weeks or months you will have to do this again. It's all part of owning a paper shredder. If you like it that much, look into buying a nicer model. You totally get what you pay for with a paper shredder.

When sherdding paper that has any type of adheasive or glue, such as junk mail advertisments, the glue gets stuck on the blades.
1 - UNPLUG
2 - remove top cover
3 - using a small screwdriver or other pointed small object, carefully clean out
the blade paths of jammed paper. Typically there is a cylinder of blades on the underside that does the shredding.
4 - be careful not to damage or PRY the blades, just enough pressure to get the paper out.
5 - dont use oil or lubricants, they can GUM up the blades.
6 - assemble
Give it a try.
