A very simple instructable, just in time for Chanukah. I'm sure many of you have struggled with the fact that many times, the chanukah candles are just slightly too large for the menorah. So here is a simple solution: a pencil sharpener. You need to get the two-hole type that has a regular and extra-large hole. Don't be too agressive -- usually, the candle just needs a slight trim.

    We normally just melt them...but that doesn't usually work past the first day of using each hole. I'll remember this next year.
