Jaw Crusher Application:
Jaw crusher is mainly applied to coarse, middle and fine crush of various ores and rocks with medium hardness (compression strength ≤ 250MPa), in industrial field such as metallurgy, mining, chemical, cement, construction, refractory and ceramic. Etc.

Jaw Crusher Pitman:
The pitman is the main moving part in a jaw crusher.  It forms the moving side of the jaw, while the stationary or fixed jaw forms the other.  It achieves its movement through the eccentric machining of the flywheel shaft.  Total back and forth movement of the top of the pitman is only about 1 1/2".  This gives tremendous force to each stroke.

As an interesting aside the term "pitman" means "connecting rod", but in a jaw crusher it really doesn't perform this function, that is it doesn't connect two things.  Other mechanisms called pitmans such as linkages in car/truck steering systems actually do connect things.  Thus it appears this is just the name that was applied to this part.

Manganese Dies in the Jaw Crusher:
The jaw crusher pitman is covered on the inward facing side with dies made of manganese, an extremely hard metal.  These dies often have scalloped faces.  The dies are usually symmetrical top to bottom and can be flipped over that way.  This is handy as most wear occurs at the bottom (closed side) of the jaw and flipping them over provides another equal period of use before they must be replaced.

Jaw Crusher: Fixed Jaw Face
The fixed jaw face is opposite the pitman face and is statically mounted.  It is also covered with a manganese jaw die. 
Eccentric Jaw Crusher Input Shaft
The pitman is put in motion by the oscillation of an eccentric lobe on a shaft that goes through the pitman's entire length.  This movement might total only 1 1/2" but produces substantial force to crush material.  This force is also put on the shaft itself so they are constructed with large dimensions and of hardened steel.

Jaw Crusher Input Sheave/Flywheel:
Rotational energy is fed into the jaw crusher eccentric shaft by means of a sheave pulley which usually has multiple V-belt grooves.  In addition to turning the pitman eccentric shaft it usually has substantial mass to help maintain rotational inertia as the jaw crushes material.
Protecting the Jaw Crusher: the Toggle Plate:
The bottom of the pitman is supported by a reflex-curved piece of metal called the toggle plate.  It serves the purpose of allowing the bottom of the pitman to move up and down with the motion of the eccentric shaft as well as serve as a safety mechanism for the entire jaw.  Should a piece of non-crushable material such as a steel loader tooth (sometimes called "tramp iron") enter the jaw and be larger than the closed side setting it can't be crushed nor pass through the jaw.  In this case, the toggle plate will crush and prevent further damage.
Retaining the Toggle Plate: the Tension Rod:
Without the tension rod & spring the bottom of the pitman would just flop around as it isn't connected to the toggle plate, rather just resting against it in the toggle seat.  The tension rod system tensions the pitman to the toggle plate as shown in the illustrations.

Jaw Crusher Sides: Cheek Plates:
The sides of the jaw crusher are logically called cheeks and they are also covered with high-strength manganese steel plates for durability.

Jaw Crusher Eccentric Shaft Bearings:
There are typically four bearings on the eccentric shaft: two on each side of the jaw frame supporting the shaft and two at each end of the pitman.  These bearings are typically roller in style and usually have labyrinth seals and some are lubricated with an oil bath system.
Jaw Crusher Adjustment: Closed Side Opening Shims:
Depending on the disposition of the material being crushed by the jaw different maximum-sized pieces of material may be required.  This is achieved by adjusting the opening at the bottom of the jaw, commonly referred to as the "closed side setting".  Shims (sometimes implemented and a more adjustable or hydraulic fashion) allow for this adjustment.
