5.0 out of 5 stars Oils the wheels (and cutters)!, 16 Feb. 2013

This review is from: Swordfish Shredder Oil Lubrication Bottle 240ml - Suitable for all Paper Shredders ref 40069 (Office Product)
I have had a succession of shredders over the years and one of the things that has surprised me is that despite their simplicity of function (all they have to do is shred paper!) they are easily broken. Few shredders have lasted me longer than a couple of years despite modest and careful use.

I decided to give my shredder a bit more TLC so invested in this Swordfish Lubricant Oil - I'm told the paper dust that builds up in shredders gives the gears and cutters a very hard time. I'm also told the type of oil that is suited to the dusty, high torque world of shredders is quite specific so using a squirt of WD-40 or bike oil wasn't going to work. I've now been using this oil for over a year. Sometimes I apply it directly into the shredding slot and other times I apply a "zigzag" of oil to a sheet of A4 and then put it through the shredder. I always give the shredder a second or two in reverse as well after oiling too. As a rule of thumb I oil the shredder each time I empty the bin. The result has been fewer jams and generally smoother operation.

This Swordfish lubricant is convenient to apply using its "micro-nozzle", it doesn't leak, and, despite liberal use, has outlasted the suggested 20 applications from the 240ml bottle. If you own a shredder this is a good investment - recommended.
