I'm an engineer. I compared the new sheller design to my old shellers which have worked well on native pecans until I wore them out. The new design has a shallower angle and the Phillips screws which hold the cutting plates on the sloped jaws are extremely short. They continually loosen, and are not capable of holding the plates firmly in place. These screws have only about 1/3 the thread depth of the rugged screws used on past shellers.
In order to make this poor quality Texas York Sheller work, I had to lay a strip of thick paper under the outer side to increase the slope of the cutting plates, but since the screws kept loosening, even this was not satisfactory. So, I had to repair an older Texas York Sheller in order to continue shelling the 125-150 lbs of native pecans for the past two months.
I would definitely NOT recommend anyone buy this product. It is an extremely poor product - the company must return the Texas York Sheller to the original design to regain it's very good quality shelling capability. This would appear to be an inferior "knock-off product" made by some other company than Texas York Sheller Co.
I tried to locate the Texas York Sheller Company to lodge a complaint, but could not access their contact information through Google or other search engines.
The nut cracker worked much better than the chrome-plated [or at any rate silver-colored] pot metal ones sold in grocery stores-- I've experienced broken handles with 3 of that style nut cracker over the last several months despite light to moderate use. This device is built like a tool rather than a toy. However, don't expect a decorative utensil to grace your holiday table--the styling is straight out of Ace Hardware.
UPDATE: I stopped boiling them when I got the hang of how to hold them and I actually got pretty good! It did help to boil though, softened the shell till I got used to it.
on it. The blades are'nt as sharp as the old one was. I have had my old one 50 years
so they dont make things these days like they did back then. They think you have to
put plastic on everything.
Thanks for my review:
