How do I repair my iPoint evolution pencil sharpener?

One of my students dropped my iPoint evolution pencil sharpener and a piece fell out. Now the sharpener no longer stops automatically when the pencil is done. I still have the piece, but I can't get it to go back in. Any ideas?

It is easier to empty the iPoint Evolution pencil sharpener than you realize - place your hand on top of the clear lid and gently turn the very top until it lifts off. DO NOT try to separate the clear chamber from the base of the sharpener as this will prevent the sharpener from working (the exposed metal blades will stop working for safety reasons).

You need to unscrew (counterclock) the thin top of the clear container, grasping ONLY the very top of it (5mm high), which is screwed to the top of the gray inner cylinder that contains the blades. This clear top IS NOT glued to the clear container!
Most people probabbly do as I did first, to grasp the whole clear container (because it seems to be a single part), but again, you need to turn ONLY the very top of the clear plastic (you can notice a fine line where the screwed top ends and the big container starts.
I hope you read this before breaking it up!
Good Luck!

Hi there,

If you look at the top of the sharpener there is a small 1/4" cylinder , that will twist off, then the unti can be emptied. The hole clear part does not twist, just the "cap" on the top.



Please let me know if this helps, by rating the solution.

Thank you !

Use a small nail or pin to break up the piece that is stuck, then blow out the bits with a drinking straw, maybe one of the bendy ones.

How to sharpen a pencil so the tip doesn't break


When I was in school it would always frustrate me that the tips of the pencil were always breaking in the sharpener. It took many tries of turning the pencil and turning the sharpener, different amounts of pressure and I finally found the secret.

Sharpening a pencil is a very easy thing to do. When you are using a hand sharpener, either a small plastic one with a cartridge to catch the shavings or the really small ones that don't catch the shaving, your put the utencile end of the pencil into the sharpener keeping it has straight as possible.

Applying a little pressure turn the pencil in the clockwise motion (you can turn either the pencil or the sharpener both will work). The shavings will begin to fall off and you keep turning until either you are satisfied with the sharpness of the tip or the shavings stop coming off. Make sure that you don't put more pressure on the pencil to make the shaving keep coming off because that will make the tip break and get stuck in the sharpener.

Pull the pencil out and clean the sharpener, it should be good to go. What I discovered was that if I had dropped a pencil a few times then the lead inside the pencil would be broken and this would cause the tip to break after sharpening. Treating your pencils nicely will keep them from breaking tips when you sharpen.

How do I change the blade on a iPoint evolution pencil sharpener?


Have you tried unscrewing the small circle that you insert the pencil into? Once that part comes off the blade should be more exposed.
