    Bring the old Boston Sharperners back

    By Purchasing Agent for School

    from Lenox

    Comments about X-ACTO® High-Volume Electric Pencil Sharpener:

    Bought three of these for classrooms. 2 are not working - one is fine. They just stop working.
    I wouldn't buy again. Need to find a brand that last like the old Boston that had 4 wholes.

          My teachers love this sharpener. All of the others that they have had done seem to last very long until they won't work well. Worth the difference

                Our teachers would rather pay a little more for a great pencil sharpener than keeping one that is good but you will need to replace it sooner or later. You can also purchase new blades for this if they get worn out. Great Product!!

                  This sharpener should stand up to the wear and tear of a classroom of eager sharpeners. The pencil point produced by this machine is sharp and strong.
                  The only drawback is the shavings drawer. At first it is a little difficult to replace once removed, but after a few practices, you can get the hang of
                  returning it to the correct position.

                      Comments about X-ACTO® High-Volume Electric Pencil Sharpener:

                      We conducted testing on several different makes and models of pencil sharpeners in search of the "perfect" sharpener for the elementary school classroom. This one came in second place, and would have won if not for the price - it's just not going to last more than 2 or so years in a school environment and it's too prioey to replace that often. Quill's price is competitive with other vendors though, so it's not anything they can do something about. Below is a review from a classroom teacher:

                      Ease of use by students: Very easy to use

                      Amount of space: Large footprint - is ok if it has a designated spot but not recommended for a tight area

                      Quality of sharpen: Pencils are evenly sharpened to a nice point that does not break easily

                      Uptime before motor overheats: Did not experience any overheating/auto shut off during the testing period

                      Shavings capacity/ease of emptying: Large capacity, can be messy if it is very full when emptying. Will hold about one day's worth of shavings with heavy use.

                      Durability: Survived several falls from 4ft

                      Versatility: Can sharpen multiple sizes of pencils

                      Noise impact: NOT quiet, can be distracting if the room is silent

                      Time from unsharpened to sharpened: "pretty quick", about 20 seconds

                      Other observations from the teacher: The kids all sharpen at designated times instead of as needed, so it was important that the machine not overheat while students were still waiting in line. With up to 20 minutes of continuous use, the sharpener never once overheated and shut off. This sharpener is very loud. Even though it is big and heavy, my kids managed to knock it off the table 3 times and it survived all 3 falls with no damage other than the shavings container partially opening. If you let the sharpener get too full, the shavings will be all inside the blades when you go to open it and you will have a real mess on your hands.

                            I work at a school and I purchased 3 of what you call heavy duty pencil sharpeners for our office and teachers use; after a month the first one over heated and stopped working and after that the other 2 ate up the pencils, it would sharpen one side and not the other after that they stopped working. For that price, I would not recommend it!!
