pRICE,

In for one. Perfect timing. The battery operated X-Acto sharpener we have just doesn't well at all. This should be a huge improvement.

I thought this was going to be about X-ACTO knives.

A deal on a kit would be nice.

X-Acto acquired the Boston brand of pencil sharpeners some years ago. They sell the same basic designs, but have shipped manufacture to China and reduced quality. The steel used for the cutters is not hardened sufficiently and wear out in a couple years, plastic gears made too lightly that crack or break, and so on.

This particular model is relatively better than some they sell, but don't expect it matches the older sharpeners. Once the gears chip or crack, it will get significantly noisier.

I've had experience with the X-Acto line of electric sharpeners since I did ordering at work to keep my department in supplies like this. The 25-30 year old (or older) Boston sharpeners ahave been finally breaking down the last few years, the new ones lasted about 2-3 years.

this one has 10 year warranty so for $1.6/year is probably OK to give it a try.

I would be curious what the warranty covers, if you have to pay shipping back and forth then you probably end up being a new one.

10 year warranty on the motor, 2 year on the cutter mechanism. Replacement cutters cost almost as much as a new one. Basically in light to moderate use this should be fine, by the time it breaks down you would have to buy a new one anyways.
