yeah, that's my most current thought too - for sure it isn't pasta - it
cant' be disassembled like food preparation items, I'll have to check if it
is for separating ribbon cable but I think not, and .040 seems pretty thin
for leather. The separation of the cutters is not adjustable either.
I can suggest that it is not satisfactory for shredding
microfiche or microfilm for true security purposes -- too much
information could remain in those strips.
A proper one would also cut the length of the strips to
something like 1/4" or so, and ideally the fiche would have to be fed in
wide side first to break up the lines more completely.
Pretty much adequate for shredding checks in quantity. (A single
check could be put back together by someone sufficiently motivated and
good at jigsaw puzzles, especially without the length cuts.)
Normal photographic negatives would probably be reasonable, as
long as they did not contain fine text.
It would be fine for shredding security badges, too.
Highly unlikely for making metal strips for any purpose except
perhaps metal foil chaff for confusing radar, which would need a
motorized one to make enough to be worthwhile.
Really -- if I had that, I would motorize it.
