DeSoto, Iowa USA
I usually chuck mine in the drill motor then walk over to the bench
grinder for that 'variable angle cone' everyone was talking about last year.
I still think that $300 is a bit much for a pencil sharpener, so I've
adapted mine to sharpen pens, too.
I use a 1.5 HP ($599) pencil sharpener myself. The disk on my 12/48 JET
sander. Allows me a flat lead on a round pencil. SWMBO mentioned it seemed
overkill the other day when she saw me use it.
Anybody else notice that cedar and even bass have gone to some sort of
composite crap around the ersatz lead, or is it just me?
WARNING! I'd steer clear of any drill operated sharpener that does not have
a means of dust collection. These things can cover your shop with shavings
in short order. I made my own complete with a 4" dust port, no more piles of
pencil shavings all over MY shop. Although I do have to keep a firm grip of
the pencil. ;) --dave

You make a good point, but don't stop there.
Motorized pencil sharpeners injure tens of thousands of people every year.
With my new PENCIL STOP, it will in milliseconds, stop the sharpener and
dull the point. Only $199.00 for the #2 pencil, but adapters are available
for #1 and #3 pencils.
For those too cheap to buy the "Pencil Stop", I can provide an
injury-proof non-toxic "SAFETY CRAYON."
Available in several designer colors, including:
That's the beauty of crayons, they're self sharpening! No nasty
dangerous cutting tools to injure yourself upon, if you need a finer
line, you just rotate the crayon a little! Safe enough a kid could use
