Grandpa's Goody Getter


Grandpa's Goody Getter was created in the beautiful Ozark Mountains. And now, we are offering them for all to enjoy all over our great country.

"Grandpa's Goody Getter" so easy, children can operate it. Designed originally for the hardest shell nut, the BLACK WALNUT, it can crack virtually any nut with minimal effort. If the nut will fit in the press, you can crack it...Yes, we have come across one or two that were too big to get in the press. However, 99% are accommodated. You get to decide on what size nut meats you want.

Operating the "Goody Getter" is so easy. You move the handle rearward to open the spring loaded rams and insert the nut to be cracked. Then allow the handle to come forward taking the slack out of the rams contacting the nut. The press is spring loaded and self adjusting to the size of the nut to be cracked. Now, place your index finger and thumb of your free hand gently around the middle of the nut, now pull the handle forward compressing the nut until your fingers feel the nut crack all the way around its midsection. Move the handle back to center and then on rearward opening the jaws allowing the nut to be removed while you hold it with your fingers. You will now be able to separate the remaining pieces and be amazed at how large the chunks of nut meats are.. IT IS THAT SIMPLE, plus the more you use it, the easier it is to operate. The next thing you know, you'll be cracking nuts left and right.

I am a staunch believer in making all we can here at home. When I retired I needed some extra income with my Social Security and --

When I developed this machine I intended to start my own manufacturing facility. In order to determine costs I produced a run of 25 units by myself in my little workshop. The cracker has so many parts that required welding and machining and is labor intensive I discovered it would have to sell for at least $200. No one is going to pay that much for a nutcracker.

I felt this was an extremely good product and would be good for the people who enjoy cracking nuts so I went to Taiwan and imported them. A friend of mine in Sullivan, Mo. owns the company in China that make them now so some of it come home.

This unit is made to my exact specifications on all measurements and quality of material.

With the Ebay system and a website in place my distribution costs are fixed I have an excellent avenue to sell them at this price. Normal retail distribution systems would be much higher.

Wish it could be done here but it can't
