How do I get lead out of mechanical pencil sharpener?
I was sharpening a pencil, and a piece of lead is stuck in it, so I can't fully sharpen another pencil. I tried tapping several times in an attempt to dislodge the lead, but no luck. I thought of trying to fish it out with an unfurled paper clip (unplugged of course), but I'm afraid it can still shock me. Anyone have some experience with getting lead out of a mechanical pencil sharpener that they wouldn't mind sharing?Mail this post
