Instructions for use:
This tool is the most proven practical and efficient Black Walnut Cracker on the market and when maintained, will provide years of durable use.
Maintenance: We recommend using a light oil to lubricate the working parts. The Top Gear should be kept lubricated at all times with wax, white grease or heavy oil. Wipe clean with a cloth to prevent build up of shell fragments on the working parts.
Adjustment: The nutcracker was designed with 3 adjustment methods for sizing. The 2 threaded cracking dies are adjustable by screwing inward or outward for correct sizing of nuts. Also provided are 2 small interchangeable cracking dies for cracking small nuts. The lever handle is adjustable to provide necessary leverage for cracking hard shell nuts.
Step 1: Begin by relaxing the lever handle back so that it rests toward the end of the nutcracker.
Step 2: Place a Black Walnut or other nut between the 2 cracking dies. Adjust dies inward or outward until contact is made with the nut.
Step 3: Cover the nut with a cloth to shield against potential flying shell fragments.
Step 4: Slowly pull forward on the lever handle until the nut is cracked.
