    Shredders

    Hope I have put this in the right section.

    I have a Fellows A4 shredder at home, paid around £80 from Staples around 2 years ago but again I have destroyed it and need something more industrial, any recommendations?

    This is for at home but I shred everything, needs to be built for an office. The one I have does around 6 pages at once but I have broken a piece of plastic inside which stops paper getting inside and its jamming things up and making bad noises.

    I am after cross cut and one with a basket type thing that I can pull out similar to this.

    Any recommendations for a good well built one, I thought this one was but after 3 bin bags full this week it clearly isnt.

    It is kept well oiled to solve issues of jams but this one is just not a match for me.

    By the way only shred paper, not fussed about CD's or cards but if it can do it bonus.

    I looked at that idea ages ago but settled with a metal bucket, seem to get more fun out shredding that burning it all!!

    I have so much paperwork from my Governor school, fire is the only practical solution. It would take hours to shred.

    As it is, my teenage pyromaniac is more than happy to add it to his chores. It's about the only thing he'll do voluntarily!

    He didn't look much like a Pyromaniac when you brought him to visit.

    However does he have a bit of paper saying he is allowed to be one (Trained Stage Pyro guy here)

    I find Fire works just as well and here where we are we just make a big heap and set it on fire the joy of rural nowhereness and a bit of garden space

    Although this sounds bad I do enjoy burning my paper work but shredding is more fun at times!

    Looks like I will be burning it all then.

    How about pulping it and make paper brickets and burn on wood stove or BBQ in summer
    Buy your shredders at Tesco then return within 1 year for replacement
    What do you do with the shreddings we use it for bedding for chickens
