Drill Powered Pencil Sharpener- 03.15.11

drillsharp0.jpg Exploring Lowe’s the other day to pick up epoxy, rope, and do some power tool “research”… i came across this pack of pencils… with a DRILL BIT PENCIL SHARPENER! The C.H. Hanson Pro-Sharp™ Finishing Pencil Carpenter is apparently the “world’s first chuckable drill powered pencil sharpener” and “produces a fast, consistent pencil point every time”. And so far it has lived up to its name. Honestly, it’s falling quickly into the, “how have i not had this my whole life?” category… it’s so FUN. It makes me want to sharpen through the whole box… totally understand how that reviewer on Amazon went through 144 pencils in less than 15 minutes. Anyhow, it’s fascinating, so stupidly simple, and has given my drill a whole new usage… pencils don’t stand a chance. See more on the next page, as well as a video of it in action!

Here’s the display found near the power tools at Lowe’s. pro-sharp.jpg

This is great if you ever sit down and just grind down pencils if you’re bored. It would be cool if I hooked it up to a drill press and ground it down. It makes it more fun and less boring

I see you did a review on a round carpenter pencil sharpener, I invented a sharpener for the square pencils that most carpenters use.
Please visit www.speedsharp.com and let me know if you have any questions!
Thank you,
