I am looking for a good quality pencil for framing, siding, foundation work.
The pencils we get from the lumberyards often don't last a day without the lead breaking.
Anyone have good suggestions?
By all means, it's a gentle touch. :thumbsup:This tread urged me to research some better sharpening techniques. I break too much "lead" (graphite), too.
It seems that pushing the blade with one's thumb to carve it helps to minimize the breakage (instead of whittling it like a stick). Worth a shot.
