    Same problem you have Rocky. Let me know if you can fix it. Frustrating. As I recall one of the jobs in the classroom was to empty the pencil sharpener.

    David, can you post a pic of your pencil sharpener?

    Took mine apart as far as I could, which wasn't very far. Handle is riveted on, as in seriously riveted on, cutters don't come out. Was able to get the screws out of the cutters, grease everything, and tighten it up, but that was about it. It will sharpen a pencil without breaking the lead off now that everything is tight, but the cutters are seriously dull.

    It would appear this is my simplest fix...


    Or, I could go for the anti-microbial fix...

    Not necessarily as cool, but you can't fix what you can't take apart.

    Don't buy those from Office Max y'all, the simple fix is $14 more, and the anti-microbial fix is $22 more there.
