    Aw gee somebody beat me to it. I was hoping to get my 26,000 lb 56" swing lathe brought on line to sharpen my pencils before someone else thought of it
    Never try to tell me it can't be done
    When I have to paint I use KBS products

    Now all that is needed is an automatic feed, a collet closer, then an unloaded and packaging machine. It would revolutionize the work shop.

    We all need a bit of humor and frivolity in our lives these days.

    Sorry guys, I cannot agree with the methods shown or propossed for sharpening a pencil. Surely using a CNC machine and mill cutters would give a far more accurate result.

    If you're going to carve pencils, you might as well do it right. This gal does it with carpenters' pencils...
