We have thi x-acto pencil sharpener model # 1730cn. Now it wants to sharpen off center. We sharpen from 75 to 100 pencils per week. I think the cutter head needs to be replaced but can't find any parts. I also wonder if x-acto makes an electric pencil sharpener with two cutter heads, and if they do what would be the price. Thank you John Cummings

My son just found the coolest pencil sharpener ever. Its called the Gripsharp and as its name states its a grip/sharpener. It stays on your pencil eliminating loss! Plus the sharpening design doubles the life of your pencil...pretty cool. Check it out at

My pencil sharpener x-acto EPl1606- started sharpening without stopping until it was unplugged. Shortly after that it quit sharpening like it used to. It was very sluggish and only sharpened after a long time. Where can I send it for a tune-up?

I purchased a new x-acto model# 41 and it started to make a grinding noise when you try to sharpen pencil. I unpluged it and removed the shaving catcher. The blades turn freely and I can not see anything stuck in barrel or hear grinding when I rotate blades. I have used it this school year with 14 students and can not believe it broke down. Can you offer any help, my husband has looked at it and is trying to located a manuel so he can take apart for further inspection. Thank You

I have x-acto model#41 and I need to replace the small drive which connects to drive motor. I also need diagram showing assembly for this model.The unit was purchased at the beginning of this school year and the student load use is 14. It should have never gone bad, is there a warreny on these units???

I bought a brand new Elmer's electric pencil sharperner, Desktop, 6 holes, Model 167X. I used it to sharpened my students pencil once a week since September. It is early December the the sharpener wouldn't work. I plugged it into an electric outlet and it just wouldn't sharpen. No power. I have tried everything, including opening up the bottom piece to look inside. Nothing looks burned. However, I don't know what part(s) I would need to replace. The blade is still sharp and new. Please help.

I have an X-Acto Model 18 electric pencil sharpener that I need a shavings cup for. I dropped it, and since the cup is broken, the sharpener won't work. (It does work if I stick something in the hole in the sensor space where the cup goes...does that make sense?)

Thank author of this post/comment"parts for school pro model 167x x-acto"

I have a school pro with a fried motor. It was in the garbage till i saw this forum. I don't know if any one wants any parts off it. free. I don't know how this site works for comunication.
Thank author of this post/comment"Just "fixed" x-acto school pro 167x"

quick background on sharpener, bought at goodwill for 2.99, plugged it in and it wouldn't turn on. tried the troubleshooting page for this model at x-acto here (can't post so "google x-acto model 167x not working" without quotes).

still didn't work. so this is what i did:

1. unplugged from outlet

2. removed tray

3. turned upside down and removed three phillips screws from base to remove base

4. removed two phillips screws to remove machine from outer casing

5. there should be a metal clip and plastic lever jamming a button to the left of hole where the pencils go in. it might fall out when you take it apart, most likely the plastic pivot that was holding it in place has worn. take both pieces out (the metal clip is v shaped and the plastic clip is about an 1inch in length and .25in diameter)

6. At this point reassemble in reverse order and when you plug it in it will turn on without placing a pencil into it.

this is because the button that the lever/clip were jamming is no longer in place. normally a pencil would move the clip away from the button to turn it on, when you pulled out the pencil the clip would push the lever into the button to turn the sharpener back off.

7. now you have the options of:

a) leaving the sharpener plugged in and pulling out the tray so that the safety piece does not turn it on

b) plug and unplug sharpener as necessary

c) buy a two dollar on/off switch to plug the sharpener into

if you really want a permanent fix then go back to number 5 and you should see where the plastic pivot has worn. use a tiny screw in the place of the lever pivot or use a small drop of solder. me im fine with number seven options...hope this helps
