The Dynamic Nutcracker

...it was a thrill to take the wheel of dad's sputtering cherry-red tractor through the majestic pecan grove on crisp autumn afternoons.  (there was absolutely nothing quite as empowering...) Take command of your time and plow through bushels of robust nuts crushing the shells with a single mighty force that reveals tasty meats.

  • Cracks Pecans and Other Thin Shelled Nuts of Any Size.

  • Fast Feeding.

  • No Adjustments to Make.

Dynamic Nutcracker Operating instructions

  1. Place Dynamic Nutcracker flat on table with rubber foot over the edge of the table top.  ( Wooden machine base may be drilled for permanent mounting to flat surface if desired or you may wish to place newspaper under the cracker to prevent scarring of your table
  2. Insert any length pecan ( lengthwise ) and firmly against HAMMER.  Slide ANVIL solidly against pecan.
  3. Place hand upon clear plastic SHIELD and firmly slide SHIELD over the pecan, while gently pressing down at the same time.  SHIELD will touch ACTIVATING SWITCH and immediately crack your pecan. 
  4. The RUBBER FLAP lets the nut roll out and keeps the ANVIL GUIDE clean.  However it may be necessary to shake trash out of wooden base to allow ANVIL GUIDE to slide freely.  This may be done by:  a) Disconnect machine from electrical outlet;  b)  Gently pull back RUBBER FLAP and remove ANVIL and guide assembly from machine, take care not to tear RUBBER FLAP;  c)  Hold machine on end and shake or blow trash from wooden base groove. 
  5. Lubrication of the HAMMER SHAFT should be performed after every 100 LBS of cracked pecans.  To lubricate HAMMER SHAFT follow these simple steps.  a)  Disconnect machine from electrical outlet;  b)  Lay machine on its side and view hammer area;  c)  Now gently pull on HAMMER to expose 1/8" of HAMMER SHAFT and apply 1-2 drops of light weight oil to the HAMMER SHAFT.   Be careful not to pull shaft more than 1/8" as this may damage the black RUBBER CATCH.  It may be helpful when applying oil to use a toothpick to direct the oil drops onto the HAMMER SHAFT.  Also be sure no trash or debris has collected on the shaft as it will prevent your nutcracker from operating properly.

ACTIVATING SWITCH should not be held in the " pressed-in position" 

Note:  The cracking action is sudden, so for the first few times you operate your NUTCRACKER be prepared for a sudden WHACK!  The PRELOAD SPRING will reset the PLASTIC SHIELD back over the ANVIL after each pecan is cracked. 

Pecan Note:  Extra hard pecans may require more down pressure on shield and anvil.

Tips:  Always disconnect machine after operating.  Always store in a dry place and treat as any electrical appliance. 

Do not operate machine without inserting pecans!  The machine is designed so that the pecan receives the impact of the hammer and absorbs the force.  Dry operating the machine without inserting pecans will cause excess wear and eventually damage not covered under warranty.

Do not allow children to play with machine or be near it during operation. 

Do not use wet or damp.  Dry pecans always crack and shell BEST!

Due to voltage drop and loss of power, avoid using on same circuit with appliances which draw heavy current such as electrical heaters.

Occasionally you will have a pecan that requires two hits from your cracker in order to fully crack.   This is normal due to the wide variance in pecans.
