Made from solid brass this nut cracker made in the shape of a ships wheel will make short work of cracking open the different types of nuts including the hardened shells of the Brazilian nut, by turning the wheel the vice clamps down and cracks open the nut without damaging the inner contents of the nut. An interesting project to make, either turn a bowl with a centre piece to fit the ships wheel nut cracker or turn a simple base on which to mount the ships wheel nut cracker, either way produces an elegant and interesting centre piece for any table. Makes an ideal gift, which is very popular especially around Christmas time

Just to let you know the Tormec machine I bought from you arrived here in France with my friends yesterday.
I am a retired engineer and ran my own company for many years, and I know good machinery when I see it. This is a seriously good piece of kit and very well presented. They seem to have thought of everything. I am looking forward to getting to grips with it. I,ll let you know how I progress.
Thanks for all your help
Kind regards - Ken E
