Developing a better Shredder

Hello There .
I have build the shredder itself.

But still I need motor to bringe it to live.

I’ve attached a hopper that I have designed, wich would allow the user to put only one wood plate at the time. But still this is not the final version of it .
But, i wasnt happy about it , thats why i just am rigth now automating it.

My goal is to shred with the maschine wood. ( My father is a carpenter )

@malyboa I’m curious: Why would you want to shred perfectly good wood planks? Do you want to make waste wood into sawdust? Because if that’s what you want, there are better ways/machines to achieve it
