Hi, We're just beginning the process of making our shredder.  Wanted to check out some design changes to see if anyone else has made similar: 1. Use a belt system in stepping down the motor to increase safety and ensure that blockages don't ruin the gearbox or motor. 2. Remove the external portion of the shaft that sticks out from the end of the cutter box as it's not necessary and as it turns presents additional risk. 3. Add a safety break to the hopper so if it's lifted the motor is turned off. Anyone have experience with the above?
