Is this not the benchmark for all ratchets of this type? For many years a ratchet such as this has graced my tool box until it was borrowed...never to be seen again.
I recently bought the replacement and, while a little shocked over the price, I was truly happy to see that the quality was still there if not a tad better than before.
You cannot go wrong with this ratchet as a stand alone or in a set!
I have been purchasing Craftsman tools for 30 plus years because they are proudly made in the USA and carry a lifetime warranty. You can imagine my disapointment when I opened my newest ratchet and it no longer says Forged in the USA. In fact, it doesn't even say where it is made on the tool itself. The words Made in China are very small and on the back of the cardboard package. Sears must be embarrassed that they are outsourcing so they are not making it obvious where it is made. I can no longer say I am proud to use Craftsman tools that are Made in the USA.
I can always count on craftsman tools, they work as expected. Great tools.
well worth the money
