This is a 60 tooth palm ratchet. The description is off as the 36 tooth is no longer in production. Just as good or better as MAC/SNAP ON/MATCO/CORNWELL for about half the cost. Super finish could not be happier. Thanks for reading

Good thumb wheel ratchet, top quality. Get a 3/8 to 1/4 adapter don't bother buying two sizes of ratchet.

I Love these thumb wheel ratchets they take up NO space and can get you where you need to be. As an auto / M/c tech I use these every day. I can't afford to be with out them! I actually bought 2 pairs of the 1/4 and the 3/8 because I knew someone would steal them and sure enough one of mine went missing. They are just that good! My only complaint is they don't make larger sizes. I'm hoping that changes soon!. LOVE THEM. BUY 2 EACH AT THE VERY LEAST, YOU WONT REGRET IT IN A TIGHT SPOT. Oh and forget the conversion piece... it just makes for you needing more room to work and we all know that is limited!!!

I use to own a very inexpensive set of these that I purchased from HF but after I found myself using them more and more I figured it was time for an upgrade. This SK ratchet is light years better than the junk I was using! It is in fact a 60 tooth design and is extremely smooth to operate. I was apprehensive about spending what I did for such a simple tool but it is definitely worth every penny! Made in America and not a doubt in my mind it will last a lifetime.

Built like a tank and SK has sworn to keep American manufacturing jobs. They no longer sell any tools not made by them, in the USA.

I thought it'd be bigger, but that is my fault. This thing is small (1.5" as in the description). This said, if you can get your hand in to a tight spot, this little guy should fit as well. I looked it up in SK Tools catalog and as previously mentioned it is a 60 tooth ratchet. This is even more of a bonus for tight areas where you can't get much movement. The design gives it a nice smooth turn. Couple it with magnetic sockets and it'll take a fair amount of aggravation out of a job.

If you did manage to break it, SK does make a rebuild kit for the unit, but they cost about as much as the ratchet it's self. I hardly see this as an issue as your leverage with this will be limited, and it shares internals with larger 3/8" drive SK ratchets.

The picture enclosed shows it between a 3/8" dribe Snap-on Stubby ratchet (FKF80) and a Pittsburgh 3/8" drive extension that is just under 3" long. As I said, it is small, but it'll get in where others can't.

Like all the SK products I own these are high quality tools. They are a great addition to any tool set. I have always found SK tools to be very reliable. I still have my first SK socket and it is still like new (perhaps a bit more scratched and a little dirty but it works like new and that is what counts). I highly recommend these thumbwheel ratchets and any SK tools.

I saw this on someone else's "Must-have tool list" and so ordered my own. I can't comment on longevity, of course, but it seems to be a quality unit with nice weight and a clean and crisp rachet action. Handy addition to your toolbox, you'd be surprised how often you can use it in lieu of a full rachet.

Very handy for spark plug changes as well.
