What oil to lube crosscut paper shredder?



I wonder what they used to lube the old paper punch tape. As I recall it smelled a little like Raid.. Eric

When I got my first Fellowes shredder, I telephoned them and asked the very same question.
Their reply was to use ordinary cooking oil (the lady on the phone even said no to use anything expensive like olive oil), put some on a piece of paper and shred it. The instructions were to do this after the bin had been emptied 3-4 times.
I tend to use two sheets of paper, one to the left and another to the right, otherwise I can envisage part of the cutter not getting oiled.
At the time I telephoned them, they did not have their own oil, having bought a new shredder a year ago, I notice they now recommend their own oil! I also notice it was about 6 for a small amount (expensive compared to the Morrisions cooking oil I always use!).

That would be "tendencies". And yes, top posting is retarded, but so are 'top' jokes.

The instruction book for my Fellowes says that I can use vegetable oil, so that's what I have used, but not oiled very often, maybe once a year. No problems for 4-5 years.
