A tool can be made to crack more than one walnut by using more pieces of steel pipe in the tool. Because of this successful way to crack the nut, a new way to crack hard shelled nuts uses a hollow jaw nut cracking vise similar to a machinist bench vise, and is illustrated for the case of cracking black walnuts. Since a five-eighths inch steel pipe has a five-eighths inch hole in it, the jaws of this vise would have a five-eighths inch hole through them and is chamfered accordingly.

A properly sized handle would give enough power to the vise so that a young boy could easily crack black walnuts. The jaws are elongated so that a person's hand can easily hold the nut while it is being cracked. This also prevents pieces of the nut from falling or flying away. Once pressure is applied to the nut, closing of the jaws approximately one-eighth of an inch can successfully shatter the outside wall of the walnut.

The application of force can be finely controlled using a standard vise allowing for individual adjustments to different sizes, types, and shapes of nuts. Very often four whole nutmeats are freed from the cracked shell. But since two snowflakes are not exactly the same, neither can we expect two black walnuts to be the same. So the results of the cracking of individual nuts is that they do not always crack the same. When the results of cracking a hard nut using the novel apparatus of FIG.

It is well know and widely practiced to use a hammer, not shown, to strike a hard nut thereby creating an over-pressure condition to crack the nut The application of force in this manner allows a larger proportion of the applied force to be transmitted to the nutmeat therefore creating a situation where the nutmeat and shell become fragmented and end up being mixed together, requiring a time consuming separation of the pieces. Referring now also to FIG. A chamfer disposed between d o and d i creates a circular point of contact when a nut is placed thereagainst.

As may readily be seen in FIGS.

Consequently, the invention is not considered limited to chamfer chosen for purposes of disclosure. Rather, the invention is intended to include any transition between d o and d i that results in the force between the distal ends of hollow cylinders a , b , respectively, being transferred to nut when compressed therebetween. A solid cylinder having an outside diameter, not specifically identified, slightly smaller than inside diameter d i of hollow cylinder a , b is inserted into a respective distal end of hollow cylinder a , b to remove remaining pieces of the deconstructed shell of nut from within the circular recess of hollow cylinder a , b.

Solid cylinder could also be a hollow cylinder, a dowel, or a bottle brush and achieve the same result. Referring now also to FIGS. A thin, semi-flexible U-shaped member has a hollow cylinder a , b inserted through each leg thereof. The orientation of each hollow cylinder a , b is such that chamfered proximal ends thereof point inwardly toward a central region of nut cracking apparatus Bands constrain hollow cylinders a , b within U-shaped member Nut cracking apparatus makes easier the task of applying axial pressure to nut Other methods to constrain hollow cylinders a , b could be used.

Any projection from the surface of the hollow cylinders, such as a pin stop, a setscrew, or other features would serve to restrain the hollow cylinders within each leg In operation, a nut is placed into apparatus between hollow cylinders a , b and a slight pressure holds nut in place while apparatus is placed between the jaws of a vise, not shown. Tightening the vise jaws ultimately cracks nut The embodiments shown and described in FIGS. However, the embodiments of FIGS. Jaw members a , b incorporate hollow cylinders a , b , respectively.

Replacement jaw members a , b have a mounting flange attached longitudinally to hollow cylinders a , b. Mounting flanges have a through hole sized and configures to receive a threaded fastener e. Threaded fastener is sized and configured to be received and maintained in a threaded hole in the face of each of jaw portions Replacement jaw members a , b allow retrofitting an existing bench vise or the like, not specifically identified, into a self-contained nut cracking apparatus in accordance with the invention.

A plurality of hollow cylinders a each has outside threads A first support block a contains a plurality of spaced-apart, threaded through holes each adapted to receive and retain one of the plurality of externally threaded hollow cylinders a. A second support block b also contains a plurality of threaded through holes , each of which being adapted to receive one of the plurality of externally threaded hollow cylinders b.

Chamfers associated with each of externally threaded hollow cylinders a , b face each other as in the nut cracking apparatus of FIGS. Consequently, the invention is not considered limited to devices such as vises to apply cracking pressure. Rather the invention is intended to include any other device capable of generating and axial force and applying such force to a nut through a pair of hollow cylinders.

The foregoing description illustrates and describes the present invention. The embodiments described are further intended to explain best modes known of practicing the invention and to enable others skilled in the art to utilize the invention in such, or other, embodiments and with the various modifications required by the particular applications or uses of the invention. Accordingly, the description is not intended to limit the invention to the form disclosed herein.

Also, it is intended that the appended claims be construed to include such alternative embodiments. Since other modifications and changes varied to fit particular operating requirements and environments will be apparent to those skilled in the art, the invention is not considered limited to the example chosen for purposes of disclosure, and covers all changes and modifications which do not constitute departures from the true spirit and scope of this invention. Having thus described the invention, what is desired to be protected by Letters Patent is presented in the subsequently appended claims.

What is claimed is: 1. An apparatus for cracking hard shelled nuts, comprising: at least two cylindrical tubes having an exterior diameter less than a diameter of a hard shelled nut to be cracked, said at least two cylindrical tubes each having a proximal end and a distal end, each of said at least two cylindrical tubes having a chamfer at said proximal ends thereof, said at least two cylindrical tubes being axially aligned with one another with said respective proximal ends facing one another and spaced apart from one another, a space therebetween accommodating a hard shelled nut to be cracked, said distal end of each of said at least two cylinders being adapted to receive a linear compressive force thereat whereby said linear compressive force forces each of said at least two cylindrical tubes towards one another so as to exert a force on a hard shelled nut placed therebetween.
