X-ACTO Pencil Sharpener Project:
I bought this pencil sharpener from my nearby Walmart store. It was very cheap compared to the other pencil sharpeners of its kind, with a large trash storage compartment and blades that don’t need sharpening on a constant basis. It reminded me of my elementary days, and I wanted my kids to have the same experience. The only problem that I notice with the design was the idea of a suction cup method to keep it stable while they sharpen their pencils. Basically if the sharpener suction cup want not mounted onto a very flat surface, after a turn of the handle, the whole sharpener would come off the surface. You either mount the sharpener on glass table or try to hold down the sharpener with one hand and keep it from moving, while you try to sharpen the pencil without breaking the pencil tip.
3D print a bracket mount that would allow me to screw the sharpener to the wall!
