Electric Pencil Sharpener, Europe?

Post by skomdra » 06 Nov 2014, 11:23

Hi,

Are any of you aware of good, heavy duty electric pencil sharpener which could be bought in Europe? I am having a "great time" finding one on Google, pointing me only on X-Acto, which in US costs >$60 on Amazon, and on amazon.de exactly the same costs 138 EUR? I mean, wtf. So, any help for us who still use pencils, sometimes, is very welcome.

Cheers!

Our studio was equipped with heavy-duty "Dahle" sharpeners, but it was said they'd been discontinued. However, I've found http://www.spitzmaschine.de/maschinen/dahle/dahle.html which lists electric models like Dahle 200, 280, and 230 (battery).

Their current website lists two models:
http://www.dahle.de/produkte/buerogerae ... risch.html but doesn't give prices. I've found some online shops, like http://www.ink-center.de/Schreiben-und- ... -0-mm.html and http://hitzel24.de/10-_-schreiben-korri ... chine.html, so the price seems to be about 80.- € everywhere.

they are great machines tough, i've got an older version of the dahle 200, which seems to be no longer produced.
