    I just saw that somewhere too. Pretty cool. Not a precision device but maybe handy to have around.

    I have one.

    Works okay. Not exceptional, but okay. If you notice at 2:07 the guy is applying his full body weight to get results...

    Look on Ebay to find much better prices than the "but wait, there's more!" promoters.

    Wait a second! The final parting shot, they were sitting outside a brew house that is 15 minutes from here! I looked them up and the company is right down the road from the brewery. Small world!

    That idea may have been hatched right there in the brewery.

    I have a uniburr and like stated, it is okay. The idea is there, just needs more refining.

    I have a nut splitter like that. I used it a few times as a total last resort. Limited in where it can be used but it did work.

    I'm sure the quality of the hardware you're trying to break has a lot to do with how well these things work, too.

    I have that one still in the box. Don’t think it’s ever been used.

    Last time I busted a nut...I didn’t use one of those....

    I have one, and it’s a piece of crap, mushed into the nut some and popped off .

    I heard from someone awhile ago that they don't work all that great.
