Popular Mechanics (or some other rag) had plans to build a walnut huller in one of their old magazines, probably from the 60s. It involved jacking your car's drive wheel up about an inch off the ground, throwing your car in gear, and putting the walnuts between the spinning tire and the ground. You guys aren't talking about that one, are you?

It was some time in the mid to late 50s that it came out I know because I have the page LOL. Shows what look to be a 1954 Ford or other such car in about that time period

I wish I could find a way other than one at a time to crack the shells. The local pecan crackers will not do walnuts.

What Gambles said under the tire will work but you need to have hard surface not ground under tire. My dad built a trough that worked great.You will need a backstop for the nuts ( dad used the side of the old bank barn as a backstop ) if you don't you will be picking them up way out in the field. The out side covering will land about 8 to 10 foot behind truck. Also don't let anybody walk behind vehicle while doing it because they come out fast enough that they could kill you if hit in head.

A curtain rod with a piece of canvas would make a nifty deflector at the end of that trough.

What about that old wringer washer that was on here a few days ago. Can you open that up wide enough? Speed is very nice.

One other thing. Make sure that your car does not have a limited-slip differential.....

Artist rendition. Based on the hooded headlights , and those two grooves by the talilight I think he used a 55 or 56 Ford as a model.
