A NOTE ABOUT THE DESKTOP PENCIL SHARPENER:
The sharpness of the lead point can be adjusted by turning the ribbed screw that passes through the crank handle.
Turning this screw fully anti-clockwise gives the sharpest point of 0.5mm. Turning the screw fully clockwise gives the least sharp of 4.8mm (sometimes preferred for colour pencils). Positions in between will vary the sharpness of the point.
The machine is delivered from the factory with the screw turned fully clockwise so as to avoid damage. Although instructions are provided and there is a sticker to draw attention to this feature, users tend to overlook this information and immediately conclude that the machine is faulty.
