    If you’d like to support creating more things like this, please consider joining my Patreon at I’ll be doing a behind the scenes directors commentary going into the oodles of details that didn’t make this video on there soon! There’s also an awesome discord. Big thanks to all the existing patrons who make it possible to make ridiculous things like this!

    Imagine if all the engineering YouTubers made a pencil sharpener that was focused around what they normally do.

    I love how this show is almost framed like a reality TV show where there’s 1 contestant and 1 judge.

    As an engineer, I miss seeing the math’s, design thoughts, validation, pre testing, etc

    I hope you’ll remember us nerds now that you’ve gotten huge!

    My biggest takeaway from this video has nothing to do with sharpening pencils. I am just seeing one of the luckiest men I have ever observed. He has a phenomenal workshop (which I am super jealous of), but also an amazing and supportive wife. Just imagine being able to do the things you love with the people you love. Thats beautiful, and I would watch this video multiple times just to witness sincerity of their relationship. Wholesome, uplifting, inspiring, educational, entertaining. Sure justifies the subscriber count.

    The “pantograph lathe” is actually a real thing called a tracer attachment for manual lathes and the perfect companion for them is actually a water jet table to cut out the templates needed.

    I’m an aerospace engineer and I’m absolutely fascinated every time I watch one of your videos! You’ve taught me a lot about design and fabrication, and I’m amazed that you have the know-how to work on everything yourself from start to finish. Hope to meet someone like you in real life soon!

    I love how his wife is about 6 times more pleased with this video than with anything he has done in the past

    I’m not sure which one made me laugh harder: accidentally removing the graphite from the pencil with explosives, or “Christmas in Australia” 😂

    This has to be my favorite channel from all of youtube – from the ridiculous ideas, fantastic execution to the wonderful, dry humor it really has everything.
