After attempting to crack these stone hard black walnuts using compression tools to no satisfactory effect, I decided to experiment utilizing readily available parts from a local farm equipment store. The annotated pictures depict the method, which is highly successful. This method could be utilized for other nuts by simply using the appropriate sized pulley. The Pulley is ideal since it gives a good sturdy base. A distinct advantage is the nut shells don't fly around when smacked with the hammer. All compression tools crush the meat. Using this method meat crushing is minimized.The collar insert makes removal form the pulley after crushing easy.
