This is the same ratchet that has been in Craftsman mechanic tool sets for ages...and for good reason! Strong, solid and overbuilt to withstand severe duty, this is the most used ratchet any place I have ever been!
After 24 years my 3/8" drive ratchet finally gave up. It has been used to work on countless cars and in my bike shop so I had zero complaints. The warranty replacement was another story. I was given a chinese replacement that looked and felt like a poorly made toy, the tool didnt even have the right weight. I was not aware of the Craftsman asian invasion so i checked other tools while in the department and was very surprised at all the imports. A very sad end of an era for this mechanic.
