Even though I don't really use them anymore, I've always wondered how pencils are made. Now, thanks to you tube, I found this How It's Made segment that shows how some pencils are made. So I bring it to you. I did elarn something from this video, and I hope you enjoy it. It is only five minutes long.






I've always enjoyed shows like this. Unlike most people I will sometimes get a little curious about, well, just about anything and want to find out what I can about it. This video answered my questions about the pencil.

Crazy. I was just looking at a pencil the other day and racking my brain wondering how they are made. One of my favorite shows.

"How its Made" - I love that show. I always learn something watching it. The only complaint I have with it is sometimes they try to take on something too intricate and complex for the allotted segment. The segments work great for stuff like pencils, flashlights, washing machines, etc.. Not so much for submarines, the space shuttle, etc.

You and me don't always agree but this was a awesome find.

I've often wondered how pencils were made, but always forgot to look it up when I got home. Now I know.

Thanks for the education.

I found out through research that William Shakespeare was the originator of the system for classifying pencils by the hardness of the lead. He separated them into two categories: 2B ...or Not 2B.
