After being frustrated with trying all kinds of methods to shred my tobacco and not wanting to invest in an expensive high quality shredder, I decided to build my own. At first I had doubts but after some adjustments and a bit of patience I've got this things running quite well. I'd like to inspire people do to as I have done - build your own shredder if you have the skills and tools. Its really not that complicated. This isn't my idea, I based it off a tobacco shredder I seen on a museum web site that was built in the 40s during the war. I made a lot of modifications but its essentially the same thing. Its hand cranked but if you were so inclined it could be motor driven.

Pictures are worth a thousand words.

Its a bit of a beast but it does the trick, was cheap to build and all I'll ever need to do is sharpen the blade.
