General Pencil Company provides the step-by-step instructions for the execution of my plan. The initial problems I see on the horizon include constructing an oven that can reach temperatures in excess of 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit. I will also need a drum for mixing clay and graphite, a wheel for grinding the mixture into a fine powder, and tubes (dare I say aluminum?) for shaping the rods.
It, however, says nothing about the eraser.
