    They have an adjusting screw on the front. When it is screwed out and the burrs are loose it cracks the grain. Big Jim ... From: made_it_myself

      I saw one of those recently on the northern tool site for about $50 US + P&P

      I assumed cracked just meant a bit broken, not totally mashed up.
