Wonder how it would work as a nut cracker? Might be an interesting experiment.

My mom had one of those too, so she could crush ice to go in Dad's thermos bottle.
As far as I know, she never used it as an instrument of torture.

I've heard that a bar of soap under the foot of the mattress works for restless leg but there are also meds - my son takes them! Try those first before the tool! lol

Instrument of torture... hee... when I first saw it, my dad made one of his usual wisecracks. I turned to mom, with a deadpan expression, and said, "I know what it is. It's a medieval torture device, commonly used to break the bones of fingers into very tiny pieces." My dad turned white as a sheet for just a moment before he realized I was joking. That's what I call a Kodak Moment ;)

I should have had you people helping me with my first fantasy novel. There's a particularly cruel sorceress in it.

But really, I meant as an instrument to crack walnuts, pecans, hazlenuts, etc.

Boy, give 'em and inch...

Aww, Goodweed, don't be such a downer ;) We're all imaginative adults here! It's fun to think up various uses for household implements ^_~ Personally, though, I think using it as a 'nutcracker' - in the sense Sizzlin meant - is just a wee bit drastic >.< I'm female, but that doesn't mean I can't imagine just how painful that would be O.o

*EDIT*

*Evil cackle* Fantasy novel? Cruel sorceress? I want to read it!
