This guy is either on medication or should be.

I'm sure I'll never know what it's like to sit around and come up with answers to questions that no one asked.
Like "I wish I could go into the pencil making business out of my basement but don't know where to start"

I understand that you can deviate from the "standard" yellow #2 pencil but for $700, you'd better be making a lot of them. Especially considering that the last box of #2's I bought was about $10 for  a 72 count.

First it was chop sticks, now it's pencils, I wonder what it'll be next.

How about pick up sticks, remember those. Probably hard to hold in a chuck Smiley

With this unit could you make any or all of the above? Chop sticks, tooth picks, skewers, Mini que sticks.
