Got The USA made one

I got this in the 260 piece mechanics tool set with the plastic box, It's great and stamped big and bold USA. I've seen That crafstman has started making stuff overseas but its nice to know they still make the products for the sets in the USA. I turned my wrench full circle and heard 44 "clicks", the one at sears marked made in stupid old china only had 36 "clicks" so yes the quality has declined. for those of you out there who want the USA stamp on your tool you could open the ratchet and maybe fix it instead of getting chinese stuff. I would reccomend this to a friend until they made ALL the ratchets in the USA again.

Poor quality

Bought this ratchet as part of a larger tool kit. Upon first use, ratchet felt and sounded odd. Upon second use, the ratchet mechanism jammed. The direction lever moves freely but the mechanism will not move in either direction. There isn't even any wiggle in the head, it is the equivalent of a fixed tool. Snapon is extremely expensive and SK somewhat less so, but they are quality tools made in the USA. Craftsman is quickly becoming a larger version of **************, where you go to buy pre-broken tools. The current quality level of Craftsman tools is EXTREMELY FAR below those I bought 20 years ago. I will get this replaced free by Sears but my confidence level is very low concerning their lack quality control. In an attempt to be competitive they are doing precisely what quickly will drive customers away...cheapening the product to lower the price. A ratchet is a very simple device internally. In opening the head there is no apparent reason why this should not work. There's only four moving parts: the ratchet head, the direction lever (which appears to be plastic), and a small ball bearing and spring to provide the detent force. Looking at the opened mechanism, it is clear the direction lever is jamming the head (but not apparent why) and not moving as it should to allow the head to click past the lever (as the head turns, the lever mechanism must oscillate slightly to allow the head teeth to slip past the lever teeth). Sad to say, Craftsman is junk these days.
