$180,000 pencil sharpener.

The caption to this video reads ( made a little program to sharpen my pencil while the boss was gone).

 I like this kids sense of humor, bet his boss doesn’t.   :ddb:

If you cant fix it, get another hobby.

Have all of my blunt pencils done in no time.
From an early age my father taught me to wear welding gloves . "Its not to protect your hands son, its to put out the fire when u set yourself alight".


Forget about the price of gold and oil, its the price of beer that matters.

Here you are Chuck !!





Seven thousand an hour and a lot less money than $180,000. Mind you seven thousand an hour is slow the German belt type can do twenty four thousand an hour when screwed up to maximum speed.



Biggest difference is these belt type weight one tonne and are 6' square, the rotary knife one I built is a desktop model.
