I posted a link to a great How It’s Made video the other day, then proceeded to spend the better part of an hour watching videos for other office-supply related clips from that show. And because I like to help others find ways to waste their time, I thought I’d share it with you.
Of note is the fountain pen video: it’s amazing how they regulate the ink flow, and how much is made by hand!
Which one was your favorite? Let me know in the comments!
Pencil sharpeners (hat-tip to David Wasting Paper)
Retractible ballpoint pens
Bic Cristal ballpoints:
Graphite cores for pencils
Copy Paper (disturbing if you fancy yourself an environmentalist)

Thanks for posting these – the one on the fountain pens really helps to explain why they can be so expensive. Very labor intensive process.
Great post Andy! Of course now my morning is now shot since I’ve been sitting here watching them all ;^)
Thanks for the link too!
This is awesome. I used to love watching this type of stuff as a kid, and aparently, I still do today.
