What's up? Been making nut crackers from the nov/dec 2004 hsm by Rudy Kouhoupt. Making about 10, possibly more. Since they will be christmas presents I can't let the secret out. But I had to show them off to someone. Thanx for looking. Later............

You should put a Z-axis drive motor and Z-axis DRO on.. Who's going to want to manually crack nuts? http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//wink.gif

Very nice work. I'm going to enjoy mine very, very much! http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//smile.gif

Well done!

I made some of those for last christmas, not a bad little project.

I see you have added some of your own flare to them. Ha ha so did I, you can't stick to the original recipe that would be boring eh.

Keep up the good work, hope the recipents enjoy them as much as I am sure you are making them.

John.

They look like a modified loadwheel axle press, which is probably why I like the design so much. I've got to dig out that issue and make a couple.
I've just been so busy with work and my collection of gasoline blowtorches. Great little weed burners. Neat little mini flamethrowers for lighting a brush pile, if you don't preheat them first, or mix kerosene with the gas.
Pretty friggin' sweet for soldering/brazing, too.
