Having used a Bostic Electric Pencil Sharper for years with great satsifaction, I went shopping for a replacement, after I accidentally placed it to close to the stove, melting it. It was no longer functional. I thought a replacement would be easy, but not the case. I went to the local stores and purchased what I thought would be a comparable one to my old one, but not to be. I had to return two of them. I ordered the X-ACTO from Overstock and it does exactly what it claims to do. It cost less than the ones at the local stores and it works just fine. Thank you!
This product worked very well when sharpening 8 or 9 pencils. After that point it would stop working. It would start working again after it cooled off. In other words, it would get overheated after sharpening 8 to 9 pencils.

I purchased this electric pencil sharpener for my grade school age grandchildren. They go through a lot of pencil lead with their homework and this is perfect for this task.

This sharpener kicked the bucket after onlly 2 years. It really did the job for those 2 years and then died. I bought it because my grandkids sometimes do their homework here, and needed a sharp pencil. Since we only have 2 grandchildren we really did not sharpen that many pencils. It/s short life is why I gave it 3 stars.
