Nut cracker 75.00. Due to increased shipping by both the United States Postal Service and UPS it is necessary to increase shipping prices. Central states 16.00, both coastal areas 18.00
Please note that we are forced to increase the price of the nut cracker considerably, it has been six years since we had a price increase. Computing our costs at the same rate as UPS and FedEx the nut cracker would be selling for 85.00.
Thanks to all those who have ordered through the website. We soliciate ways and methods to improve both the website and our products. Some of the suggestions we have used are: on the nut cracker, added the coverning on the handle to prevent staining the hands when cracking large amounts of nuts. Moving the mounting holes for the small anvils further apart. Changed the center bolt from a grade 5 to grade 8.
Website current as of 15 May, 2013.
NOTE: The only assembly required is mounting the board to the nut cracker and inserting the small anvils in the holes provided. The only tools required is a 3/16 hex wrench or key. In orders of 2 or more nut crackers the key is included. On the extra heavy black walnut mounting boards the mounting bolts have been changed to longer ones that require a phillips screwdriver for mounting.
A combination of clicking tabs and back spacing might be needed to cover all the tabs listed in the index. This is a completely amateur attempt to create a web page. .
Check out my feedback on Ebay if skeptical about ordering. "Search black walnut crackers" should do it.
We ship international but shipping charges are very high, in most cases more than the item shipped.
NOTICE; THE OLD TYPE BLACK WALNUT CRACKING ANVILS ARE AVAILABLE. THESE ARE HAND MADE BUT DO USE A LATH FOR TURNING. UNLESS OTHERWISE DIRECTED THE MACHINE MADE ANVILS WILL BE SHIPPED.
A NOTE ABOUT THE BASE SHIPPED WITH THE NUT CRACKER. THE WOOD USED FOR THE BASE MIGHT BE A NUMBER OF WOODS, BLACK WALNUT, SASSAFRAS, OAK, HICKORY, CHERRY OR ANY OTHER THE SAW MILL MIGHT BE RUNNING. I USE MILL RUN GRADE WHICH MEANS THERE COULD BE KNOTS AND OTHER BLEMISHES. THE BASE WILL BE SOUND AND SOLID, A CLEAR DEFECT FREE BASE IS NOT ASSURED. IF YOU SHOULD WANT A CLEAR BASE PLEASE SO STATE AND INCLUSE AN EXTRA $5.00. AT THE PRESENT TIME I HAVE AN EXCESS OF BLACK WALNUT WHICH IS OVER AN INCH THICK, THIS IS VERY HEAVY, IF YOU WANT THE LIGHTER BASE SO STATE.
I just found some prime OAK from a cabinet shop who has an excess. There is both riff and quarter sawn. I had never heard of riff sawn before, it is cut directly accross the grain, I prefer the quarter sawn.
At this time Oak will be sent unless specifically requested otherwise.
Just recently purchased some clear wide hickory that is over 1 inch thick. They are very heavy and will add about 3 pounds to the shipping cost. These mounting boards are 18+ inches long and 6 to 9 inches wide. These are available at no extra cost, have about 50, when they are gone there probably won't be anymore.
