Without heading downstairs to use my vice, what's the best way to do this? I'd like something that I can use in front of the TV.

Teeth
Small hammer
Mortar and pestle
Throw forcefully onto floor
Dip in acid, dry out. Shell should weaken enough to shell by hand. I think they do this to some almonds.
Find a tightarse and shove it up the nether hole, then show them a braumeister.
Flame the basterds and burn the shell off.
Poke it until it gives up
Ultrasonic waves
Plasma guns

If all else fails, don't eat, that will make you hungry enough to go downstairs.

You want to crack Bauple nuts?
1 -- Drive up to Buderim Ginger & buy a dedicated Bauple nut cracker.
2 -- Shift the vice upstairs on a folding table.
3 -- Crack them all downstairs on the vice THEN watch TV.
4 -- Use a hammer AYOR.
5 -- Sit on it! :lol:

You're more skilled than I. Damn things slip and I end up pinching the thinnest sliver of skin in the jaws. :blink:

My folks have one of these made from a piece of 255mm x 6mm flat bar. Has a threaded t topped bolt going through the top of it. You can sit and crack em with one good twist.

Handy when you have a tree.
