I used mine so much that the outer shell of the base piece cracked

I am a little bit disappointed.

There is an issue with the hole in the inside at least. It's mainly cause of a kind of square shape which block/cause a lot of friction on the handle.

Hi, thanks for letting me know that there is an issue with the base. When I printed my model I didn't notice anything. I guess I just use a force to bend this particular part a bit. Anyway, here is a better model ( see NEW-nutcracker-base.stl ) with extended thread on the left side. Thanks.

Hi, Thanks for the new model.

Nice design but it is hard to break wallnuts with the big one. what am I missing here?

bro, a model made of PLA is strong enough to crack any walnut. Try to orient walnuts in a few different positions. I tried a couple of different models' sizes before I had published this one, and this gave me the best results. Anyway if you have any idea how to improve the design and functionality feel free to make a remake and help me improve the design. Cheers.
