    Buenisima idea, me acuerdo que en la revista Hobby apareció algo similar, pero para fabricar papel de lija. Yo las habia hecho, pero el pegamento no era tan resistente (no usé epoxi)

    Great idea, i remember that in "hobby"magazine show a similar project, but for make sandpaper. I made those, but the glue wasn't very strong (i didn't use epoxi)

    No, it def. is. Look at the image above, you can see the lead (ok, ok, graphite) in the back. Msolek, what say you.

    Well, that's what I thought at first too, but it looks square, and the graphite is normally round....

    Looks like a type of carpenter's pencil. While some have rectangular bodies and leads, others have a oval body, oval/rectangular lead.
