Okay, so I got this over the summer & it no longer works. I bought it for my classroom & didn't start using it until mid-August. I don't sharpen a lot of pencils in the classroom because I know that sharpeners don't last long. I usually use the sharpener in the work room. This sharpener has never been used for more than 5-10 pencils at a time, and rarely used for new, unsharpened pencils. At first, it was great, but by the end of first quarter (9 weeks later) it wasn't working well. It would freeze up after a couple of pencils that only needed "touching up" because they had dull tips. Now I can't even sharpen up a dull pencil. It starts & then it freezes up, then I can put it in again after a second or two & get a little more out of it. So, it takes longer to sharpen a pencil than it does to go to my cabinet & get a new one. A co-worker had the same sharpener & the same thing happened. It thought hers broke because she let the kids use it all the time & was sharpening class sets of new pencils. I should have known better before I bought it.
