Frequently Asked Questions
Users will be very impressed with this high-quality and quiet battery-powered automatic eraser from Japan. The slim shape and size makes it very convenient to hold, and the delicate vibrations easily and quickly erase your pencil marks. Electric erasers are often recommended in art colleges since students have to erase so frequently. In addition, the precise vibrating movements of the eraser will allow you to erase thoroughly smaller areas that would otherwise not be possible with the movements from a human hand. Blue, green, pink and white body colors are available to suit your style. Each electric eraser set comes with 15 standard pencil eraser refills and 5 hard eraser refills that can be used for pen marks. More eraser refills are available here.
Sleek and stylish, but not very functionable. As the other reviews have stated,
it stops after only a bit of pressure. This isn't effective for drawing at all,
even if you want to get the fine details. The erasures also stick on the page
and you really need to wipe it off as opposed to just blowing or lightly
If you're going to spend money on an electric eraser, I suggest the Sakura
Electric SE2000 (which I also own). It's about 3 times the price and uses AAA
batteries which I don't like, but it definitely gets the job done.
I wish I could have said the same for the Hinodewashi.
I love this thing. It's small and easy to carry. It will stop if you press hard
but really if you are pressing that hard you are probably damaging the paper.
You only need a soft touch for this to remove the lead.
I love all things Japanese, esp. their mechanical and drafting. I always thought
that everything the Japanese put on the market is good, but not so for the
Hinodewashi Electric Eraser.
Stay away from the Hinodewashi if you want to be able to erase any pencil marks.
As one of the reviewers said, it is extremely weak. It does stop when you put it
to paper to erase a pencil mark. The motor is a tiny one and does not put out
much strength. In other words, it is practically useful in erasing anything. I
got one and regretted it. I am now looking for another one, and am gun shy about
small electric erasers due to my experience with Hinodewashi. However, the same
reviewer said the Sakura is good so maybe I will give that one a try.
the review is to keep your money in your pocket...i love jetpens, ive spent much
money here, but my fellow eraser enthusiasts and artists i must warn you that
this eraser is no good. simply put its extremely weak, it will stop upon
touching the paper. i have a good just about every major electric eraser
available, and recommend the Sakura Electric SE2000 its the best
