    Not just any pencil sharpener

    By Nancy

    from Poinciana, FL

    Comments about X-ACTO® by Boston® KS Vacuum-Mount Pencil Sharpener:

    Had one of these eons ago. Electric and battery pencil sharpeners replaced it. Got tired of batteries wearing out or having to locate the sharpener near an electric outlet. Searched for my favorite old friend. Found it at staples with the best price. Now I have a pencil sharpener right where I want it that I know will work when I need it. And the bonus - It will also work with my oversize pencils! Can't beat that.

      A wonderful sharpener that actually 'sharpens' Pencils of different sizes. The vacuum base makes it convenient to bring from place to place, such as office to computer desk, and to workshop or garage.

      Comments about X-ACTO® by Boston® KS Vacuum-Mount Pencil Sharpener:

      The vacuum seal may work better depending on the surface you have the sharpener on. Ours is on an office desk. It works fine until about the 3rd or 4th pencil, then the seal comes loose. I sharpen multiple pencils at a time, so I just reattach the vacuum. I had a battery operated pencil sharpener before this for the same cost or more and it never worked this well. Best pencil sharpener by far!

          Not worth it for the money

          Best Uses

          • Occasional use 

          Comments about X-ACTO® by Boston® KS Vacuum-Mount Pencil Sharpener:

          We were really excited to find this pencil sharpener that we could mount to a table, not the wall, and that we could hand crank and not need batteries nor need to plug into an outlet. However, we are very disappointed with it. The suction on the bottom of the sharpener only lasts through one pencil sharpening at most. Sometimes it will even come off of the table while we're sharpening the first pencil after we re-suction. It's very frustrating. The other disappointment is that it sharpens unevenly. One portion/side of the pencil almost always remains unsharpened.

                Comments about X-ACTO® by Boston® KS Vacuum-Mount Pencil Sharpener:

                I didn't want an electric sharpener because I didn't want to deal with batteries and I like the simple stuff. I wish I had purchased a sharpener that mounted to the wall with screws instead of this vacuum mount. I thought it would be great not to have holes in the wall, but regretting that choice. It fell off of the vertical side of my bookshelf twice and scuffed it up. I then affixed it to the horizantal surface of my desk and it stuck for about 15 minutes, then it was just sitting there not vacuum sealed. I am now vacuum mounting it to my desk surface only when I need to sharpen a pencil; it stays stuck long enough to get the job done. Then, I put it back where it is stored.

                  I am a classroom teacher. I bought this because I was tired of the electric sharpeners not lasting as long as I would like. The vacuum suction on this sharpener does not work well. The sharpener easily loses its grip. The students and I frequently have to readjust it.
