Thank you so much, Walt. There's about 10 minutes of my life I'll never get back. Yeah, I know, I could have stopped watching, but it was kind of like watching an ugly woman bend over; you are compelled to look down her blouse, right?

Yep. Still have a couple sharpeners in a box, somewhere. I bet I will run across them in the next couple weeks in my reorganization.

I watched about half of that. Was it serious or was it supposed to be satire?

... if perhaps a little over-spec.
This video is ten seconds long, including commentary. I promise.

I'm pretty sure it came in the plastic tube that held the pencils. I thought it was sort of funny but it did make short work of getting that first sharpening on the 20 pencils. You have to be quick with the trigger though; it'll grind the pencil down to the eraser before you know it.

My thought exactly! I keep misplacing pencil sharpeners, even big ones. But I always have a drill around. That would be handy bit to have. I would buy at least two or three of them. No more dull pencils!

Thanks for the warning. Next time I'm at HD, I'm going to look for this, and it's going to become a permanent addition to my tool bag.

Thank you sir. I had no idea that such a simple tool existed. I some gadgets laying around that plug into a drill. I will add this to the collection. Home depot even tells me what aisle it is on. I need to go down that way today. I will pick one up. I will throw it in the drawer with all my other drill related tools and bits.

FWIW almost all FastCap tape measures have a pretty darn good pencil sharpener built in.

That's what I use most of the time. I really posted that video as a gag. To me (and to my daughter, who finds some of the things I do comical enough to videotape) it seemed like swatting a fly with a hand sledge.
I'll say one thing; it did make very short work of sharpening all of the pencils the first time. But I can't imagine using it to "touch-up" pencils that have gotten dull, not if I want the package of pencils to last for more than an afternoon, anyway.
Hey, maybe that's what HD throws in the sharpener for free; that attachment can reduce a dozen pencils to a pile of shavings in no time at all.
