  1. .6732 stones

  2. Hum, if I were to remove the lead from a pencil how much would it weigh? How many shaving would it yield. How many pencils to make a pound ? Now with all of that in mind how about a “WAG” I so want an autographed book from Duck Girl. 18.7 ounces 🙂

  3. Mary Jo Rakowski

    11.11 ounces, make a wish!

  4. Hmmmm…. How about 16 ounces? I’m thinking you sharpen those pencils a lot. Looking forward to seeing the book.

  5. I’m thinking 15.3 oz

  6. 11.2 ounces

  7. Doesn’t it depend on the pencil quality? I am guessing you use fancy pencils which are heavier- yet a shaving is quite light. Lots of pondering going on here. I will say 13.5 ounces.

  8. 12.1 oz for me

  9. 9 ounces

  10. 7.5 ounces

  11. I’m going to guess 14.25 ounces.
