The best nut cracker I ever used will crack any nut.
As advertised, nut cracker
Would have been nice to have an instruction book. After shattering several black walnuts, tinkering with it I finally got the hang of it. You hear the crack, back off, rotate nut, do it again. Be careful or nutshell is like shrapnel shooting across the room
HAD ONE FOR YEARS
I HAD ONE FOR 5 YEARS, SO I ORDERED ONE FOR MY BEST FRIEND. I KNOW HE WILL LOVE IT AS MUCH AS I DO.
BLACK WALNUT CRACKER
Exceeded my expectations! I believe it will prove to be the best investment for me this winter. I have used it to crack all the other size and kind of nuts we eat. This one machine does it all. Two minor gigs. 1. The cog across the top of the frame is out of alignment with the frame, hence wearing one side of the cog and creating metal shavings (dust) 2. The platform board is drilled to hold the two bolts not used. One of the holes was not drilled properly and I had to redrill the hole. But that turned out to be a plus, while I had my drill bits out I drilled a couple of small holes for my tatting needles (used as nut picks)
When received some of the bolts did not thread into the holes properly. After purchasing replacements at the hardware store they worked properly in the threaded moles. I used to crack open hazelnuts from native hazelnuts which have very small nuts. These nuts are smaller than peas but I was able to shell them without for the most part not damaging the nuts.
This is such an easy nutcracker to use. It takes so little effort to remove the walnut meat after using this nutcracker. I wish we'd bought one years ago.
It works but one bolt already broke and I had to replace it. It is working again. However, the gear at the top of the part seems to be made of soft metal so I am not sure how long this will last.
Excellent and fast service
The product gave us good quality service.
Bought as a gift. Person has several wash tubs full of black walnuts and butternuts. Sits in garage cracking for hours, gets large pieces, adjustable, durable for sure.
