Someone from Tom's Hardware Guide had a crazy idea, he just turned his Xerox Phaser laser printer into a paper shredder!
About the same time I decided to see if I could find an automatic bulk paper shredder solution for him. Sure enough I was able to find some options, but they ranged from $3,000 - $12,000. Obviously that wouldn't do for the creative-minded geek. So after some brainstorming and a lightning strike or two, I had the idea to modify the remnants of the laser printer to fill the role.
