Highly Recommended Bostitch Electric Pencil sharpener

The only one to use. Today I am going to review a couple of electric sharpeners from Bostitch. They were kind enough to send me some of their products to try out. This is not a sponsored video of any kind, I just thought I will share my thoughts on these two models with you guys. In a previous video, I mentioned how a sharpener with a helical blade is superior to usual sharpeners having flat blades.

Helical blade sharpeners usually last longer than the flat blades and they don’t tend to break the pencils while sharpening. Many Hand cranked sharpeners and electric sharpeners carry a helical blade. I usually use a manual sharpener with a helical blade to sharpen my pencils especially Prismacolor pencils because they tend to break very easily with normal sharpeners. I never had a chance to use an electric sharpener before. Because they are not available to purchase in my country.

But then people from Bostitch approached me and offered some electric pencil sharpeners for reviewing.

I was really happy to get them and show you guys how they performed. I got two models from them. First one has a small form factor and we hold the pencil vertically to sharpen. It turns on automatically when the pencil is inserted and stops automatically once the pencil is fully sharpened.

So there is no need to worry about over sharpening and wasting the pencils. This is the simpler one of the two and I have seen a lot of models like this from various videos. Nothing fancy here just put the pencil in and you get a nice sharp point within seconds. It is as simple as that. It runs with an adaptor plugged into the wall or it can run from batteries.

This is convenient because we can use these Bostitch Electric Pencil sharpeners while travelling also.

I think this is perfect for Prismacolor pencil users because they fit perfectly and the chance of breakage or splitting is very rare. I have been using this sharpeners for over two weeks now and I never had a breakage with them. So for Prismacolor or polychromos lovers these sharpeners are perfect. And this model doesn’t cost you much too.

It’s just around $16 on amazon. I have put the links for both these sharpeners below. The only disadvantage of this model is that they can’t be used with thicker pencils like derwent pencils or Caran dache luminance. This sharpener is designed to sharpen pencils only up to 8mm in diameter. I think I will use this model most of the time because I mostly use Prismacolor for my drawings. Classroom use of Bostitch Electric Pencil sharpeners is also recommended.

The second model is different in many ways. I was actually surprised to see how this model sharpened pencils. I have never seen such sharpeners anywhere before. Because it has a special pencil loading mechanism. It’s bigger and heavier compared to the previous model.

We have to load the pencil horizontally. We just have to put the pencil inside, it will automatically pull the pencil in sharpen it completely and expel the pencil after sharpening. Its completely hand free. This is very easy on the hands. We put the pencil in and we get a completely sharpened pencil out.

This way we can even sharpen little stumps of pencils because of the auto expelling. And we can use many different pencils also.

I could sharpen both Caran dache luminance and derwent pencils with this one. The only drawback is , since its fully automatic we cannot sharpen the pencils half way. Because we can’t really pull the pencils while sharpening.

This particular model also runs with an adapter plugged into the wall. I really liked this model of sharpener because of its peculiar way of sharpening. But I think I will use the first one more frequently because I use Prismacolor pencils most of the time and sometimes I need less sharpened ends for burnishing. So This was a brief review of both these models of electric sharpeners from Bostitch. I am so happy to try them out and I am quite satisfied with both these products.

Indoor Space Heaters – Energy Efficient Savers Providing Comfort

In most cases, space Heaters are used when the main heating system is not doing its job or the central heating unit is too expensive  to install or operate. Space heaters are usually self-contained, free-standing air heating appliance intended for installation in the space being heated and not intended for duct connection. If you only want to heat one room or supplement inadequate heating in one room, space heaters are less expensive. They can also boost the temperature of rooms used by people who are sensitive to cold without overheating your entire home. Electric space heaters are the only non-ventilated space heaters that are safe to operate inside of your home. They also avoid indoor air quality concerns. 

Most
space heaters depends on convection heating which is the circulation of
air in a room. The best convection space heaters incorporate a heat
transfer liquid, such as oil, heated by an electric element. Heat
transfer fluid provides some heat storage, allowing the heater to cycle
less and to provide a more constant heat source. Radiant heating is also
used in space heaters. These heaters emit infrared radiation that
directly heats up objects and people that are within their line of
sight. Radiant space heaters are the most efficient choice when you will
only be in a room for a few hours and can stay in the light of sight of
the heater. These heaters avoid the energy needed to heat the entire
room by directly heating the occupant of the room and the occupant’s
immediate in the surroundings.
