Colored Pencils and Sharpeners

My classes are scheduled by grade levels which means I have 5-6 classes in a row using the same materials. When we use colored pencils approximately 150-180 students are using them back-to-back. This means a lot of sharpening! I have one hand-turn sharpener on the wall, but that leaves a constant line of 5 or more waiting. I also have two electric sharpeners, but they get hot after about 10 minutes and won't work again until they cool. I really like having small sharpeners on each table so the students won't have to get up, but so far I've not been successful in finding a brand or type that doesn't destroy my pencils. Does anyone know where I can find some GOOD quality sharpeners? Or...could it be the quality of my colored pencils....Prang and Crayola?

Thanks! (in advance)
