Reviews
Westcott iPoint Orbit Electric Pencil Sharpener, Black (16059) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really Sharp Points I purchased this at Sam's club and I thought it was a good price. I am an artist who uses colored pencils a lot. I am always having problems getting my pencils really sharp. This sharpener works well for this. I like the fact that it will stop when the pencil gets to it's point. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that it is easy to dump the shavings but it is very difficult to clean the inside of the cover. Other than that, it is a great sharpener.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what it should. It works great and has a small form factor, so it doesn't hog your desk. It's nice that the whole thing can be unplugged (just hold the cord with something else so you don't have to re-tuck it behind your desk), because when you go to dump the shavings, you really have to, since the shavings cup has a hole on the bottom to enable vertical sharpening. It's a slight down-side, but it's not annoying.I'm here though because I broke a pencil tip or something in my sharpener and now the auto-start/stop is working very erratically... I was hoping to find some answers, but I guess I'll just unplug and take it apart soon. Saw all the bad reviews and thought this could use a boost, since apparently people don't leave reviews on brand websites unless they're unhappy (true of many brands it seems).It's worked great for a year, and I'm the guy who likes writing with sharp pencil tips, so it's very handy. If I can't fix it, I'll see if Costco will replace it.

My ipoint orbit sharpener is no longer sharpening. When I put a pencil in nothing happens. I have the instruction paper, but I cannot find my receipt. It was purchased in September of 2019.

Our sharpener no longer turns off when the pencil is removed. It has to be unplugged in order to get it to stop running. Is there anything we might be able to do to fix this? There are no visible obstructions in the sharpener.

How can I make my sharpener sharpen and stop squeaking?

Asked by: laura
If the pencil sharpener is not sharpening at all, then we suggest filing a warranty claim. Please file a warranty claim with us at the below link: https://www.westcottbrand.com/contact-us/warranty-claims.html Here are some tips to try and improve sharpener performance. One tip we can suggest is that if colored pencils were sharpened, sometimes the lead can deposit a waxy buildup. If you sharpen a series of regular no. 2 pencils, the graphite lead and wood shavings of this type can at times help to remove some buildup. While this may not definitely resolve a dullness issue, in case this usage applies to you, we hope that this suggestion might assist with improving performance.
