Re: When you build your own pencils

Will do - the key will be getting good lead.

I think a small simple fixed fence plane will allow for cutting (or scratching) the slot for the lead accurately.

I'm sure there are gadgets made somewhere (bridge city style) to make pencils, but I'm not looking for something like that - it'll add better to your legend if you do it and make it out to be an organic process that started with your nuttiness and required nothing from outside of your shop bubble.
