Pencil Sharpener

And for a small change of pace, we're back to shooting indoors. This menacing piece of equipment grinds pencils so that they are *just* the correct thickness — that perfect width for drawing, sketching and all other manner of pencil maneuvering. Remnants of the last victim are still visible on the teeth.

There was a time when this device required two of our animators for proper operation but that's both old news and an inside joke. Strangely enough as soon as we bolted it to a wall (removing the dual-animator requirement), one of the animators left thereby proving the fact that this pencil sharpener holds great power.
