Pencil sharpener shave
Ok this one is a wish I had for a long time, to make one of these pencil sharpener shaves, but I have had no luck to find an old sharpener and a new was too expensive I thought.
But then the other day in a local supermarket I finally had the luck, in a pile of junk sold for a dollar each.
Ok to be honest I was a little in doubt if this was constructive or destructive so I decided not to put batteries inside to see if it was actually working, in this way I can stay in the believe…
But I choose to call this an offcycle instead of up- or recycle.
The only advantage of a new is that the blade is new also, but I will guess old blades could be of better quality.
Honestly to get this thing apart was quite a challenge, but with some good old violence I managed at the end.
