If what you are meaning is the difference between the strength of laminated 2 x 10's as compared to regular 2 x 10 lumber, the laminated beams are stronger and will hold more per linear foot.
The best way to make sure you have enough strength for what you want is to ask the lumber yard to give you the numbers.
All laminated beams may not be made the same. Some are made with plywood, some with chipboard, and some made with lumber (2x and or 1x) glued together. What you want them for will determine what kind of beams are best for you. If the strength is not enough or iffy, you may want to consider steel I beams.

How do I remove paper stuck in my shredder????I have a Royal 10X Cut Paper Shredder. On label it has PCUA:29054E 10x 00324040. How do I take it apart to remove the wedged paper???


You may have to turn it upside down and go to work with tweezers and a utility knife to remove every bit of paper from the mechanism. I have found that 10X rating to be overly optimistic; the equivalent Royal shredder I am using currently groans and complains if more than a few sheets are fed in at a time.

No power to shredder, no reset button, reverse will not solve


The motor may have overheated and failed, especially if the shredder was operated at its rated capacity or operated continuously for long periods of time. The specs for these devices tend to be exaggerated.

Papers come out cut but not all the way through


You are exceeding the capacity of the shredder. Regardless of the capacity claimed, most of the common office shredders can handle only a few sheets of paper at a time. As for credit cards, they will destroy your shredder quickly because they are simply too tough to handle.

I have a Royal 150MX Crosscut Shredder and I have to stop every few minutes to get the accumulated strips of paper off the cutting heads. Why does it keep wrapping? When it wraps the machine slows down...


OK first...15 sheets is absolute maximum; ie 1 more sheet and it dies!!
Manufacturers always rate machine to their "maximum". With shredders if you want longevity and the fewest jams it would be recommended that you run the machine at about 50% capacity.
Its pretty simle really..start with 1 sheet then 2 sheets and keep going until you hear the motor starting to "labour"....you shouldn't run much more than that.
Think of it like your car...it will do 100 mph...you know what it sounds like at that speed..engine going flat-out etc, etc...how long would your car last if you always drove it "flat-out"??? How many repair bills would you have..."or" if you drove your car at 50 ~60 mph its a lot easier on the car, lasts longer and with routine maintenance will have fewer breakdowns and repairs.
Now...routine maintenance on your shredder.....the 150mx is a cross-cut shredder; ALL cross-cut shredders should be "oiled" regularly...has your's ever been oiled????. Its a simple process...you get a bottle of "shredder" oil and pour some across the cutting blades to provide librication and help clear away the tiny pices generated in the shredding process. How frequently??? How much do you shred?? The more you shred the more you will need to oil it. The Royal shredder is a consumer machine designed for the home or home office use; for occassional shredding.

Paper always packs up in the blades and it will not cut more than 1 sheet at a time. Sometimes not even that. Any solutions for this? I constantly have to dig the paper out of the blades, even after...


All x-cut shredders should be oiled. Buy some shredder oil ( this is a lightweight oil ) from your local store then pour some of the oil across the cutting blades where you insert the paper. After putting the oil in run the machine in reverse...this will help get the oil all thro the cutting mechanism. Then start shredding 1, then 2, then 3 etc, etc sheets at a time...when you hear the motor starting to "labour" to take the sheets thro'..then you have just about reached the point where "thats its maximum". You should occassionaly shred a sheet of paper with a bead of oil on it ( in an "S" pattern) to help keep the mechanism lubricated. Running the machine at about no more than 75% of its maximum capacity and regular oiling will prolong the machines life.

SHREDDER STOPS (RED LIGHT) VERY FREQUENTLY


there are what is called strippers that ride in between the teeth to keep paper from building up. they are plastic and can break after awhile. sounds like you have some of the stripper combs broken.

Shredder won't shred - all paper is cleared - works intermitantly


Run the shredder in "Reverse" mode for 15 seconds.
Oil the cutting head thoroughly as this is a High Security shredder.
Test it at 4-5 sheets.
They always overrate the capacity but if you want to keep it operating, shred 3-5 sheets max.

Running for serveral minutes could be due to dirty optic sensors. Unplug the shredder, remove the top (2 screw underneath front and 2 in back). Remove the sensors (they have a little pushbutton tab) and clean thoroughly with a soft cloth. Re-insert the sensors ensuring they lock in place, reset the top cover and test.
