"I have used this cracker since 2005. this year I was given a pail of Texas pecans to crack. I screwed the adjusting screw down to fit the pecans. It worked great. The meat was coming out in 2 pieces and some were whole nuts. The adjustment screw makes it adapt to several kinds of nuts. A great product. Has saved many smashed fingers and thumbs. "

"I'll add to the many voices--this is a much-needed tool and it works like a charm. I put my hand around the walnut as I crush it to keep the shards from flying everywhere!"

"This is a very great nutcracker. It is very easy to use. It cracks the toughest walnuts I have with very little pressure. This will save me lots of time cracking. Really love it and would recommend it to anyone. Tried the clothe over it like others suggested and no more flying shells."

"Well made, works great. Makes shelling black walnuts faster and easier. One suggestion I would have and I am going to try it on mine is to add a cloth skirt around the top that would drape down around the nut to prevent the shell fragments from shooting out across the room (probably from too much excitement pressure). Thanks."

"I purchased this cracker a few years ago for my father-in-law who lives in the mountains of VA. He mounted it vertically and last year alone processed 6,000 walnuts. This year he has already cracked 7,000 and has a truck load yet to do. Quality and value definitely describe this item and its given him hours of enjoyment. He does a 5-gallon bucket (approx. 300) in 30 minutes. I would certainly recommend this cracker."

"The nut cracker works just like its described to work. There was no problem with mounting on a board. I am looking forward to many years of use."

"Had this cracker for aprox. 1 month. It's great, however you might as well plan on getting some catch hooks 1/4" x 1-1/4 because you'll be needing them. I've already done 42 pints and more to go. A great device but like anything else maintenance may be required."
