No, I had not yet seen that... looks cute!
...and expensive!

the upright piece looks like it's aluminum, and might get bent easily...

..You might look at the pasta cutters if you wish to shred by that method.
They were at $10 + shipping.
Sry I don't have a link available right now, but you could run a search here at the forum and find more information on them.

I do pretty well with a scissors from the dollar store...

just found these... for starters... there's plenty others out there if you wish to search a bit...

I guess they even got one a wallyworld... which is good for the return policy if it breaks.
Recently I've had a few probs buying from asian vendors... they can ship their goods here really cheap.
It costs us 5 or 10 times more to ship a doa item back to them for credit or exchange...

You can't beat a Powermatic shredder. Absolutely the best shredder on the market.

In reply to steve Dodds,

I've just recently bought one of these.I was a bit doubtful because of the size but when it arrived it was bigger than the pictures give it credit for.Also its a fairly solid bit of machinery.

The one I bought was advertised as recently released and cuts at 0.8 mm unlike the 1.0 mm previous size,which is still for sale.
It shreds dry tobacco excellently.If the tobacco is moist/in case it doesn't shred as fine ( I'm slightly puzzled by that )
Beats the hell out of using a pair of scissors.

To Rusty,
The upright is steel and when fastened to a table is very sturdy.Build quality is good I think considering the price,£33 or roughly $54
Is it worth the money ? If it proves to be reliable then maybe.

arty, if you got one, and it's producing for you, and it is able to generate a sufficient amount of shred to pay for itself. sounds like it's a good deal!

I bought a MACH 1 Tobacco Shredder about a year and a half ago and it
still is going like a champ...Expensive but it's built like a tank and will shred anything
you drop down the chute....but fortunately it has a reverse in case you drop
something down it by accident and I have.

yep me too. I tried and used everything going. all kinds of paper shredders, pasta , and knives. finally got the mach 1 and gave everything else away. Including the powermatic S. I shred between 2 to 3 pounds as fast as I can drop it in and it ain't even warm yet when I stop. Love it no mess. just do it like I should. Lee
