If you're looking for a NICE 3/8 ratchet, you probably can't do much better than this model. Like the other SK ratchets I've recently bought, this thing has good heft to it and is smooth as glass. The knurled end of the handle is very well done and gives you very positive grip on the ratchet. I imagine this would work well for anyone that got it dirty or oily, although it's much to beautiful for me to be that careless with it.

The ratcheting mechanism is quite fine and exceptionally smooth. I absolutely LOVE the sound of an SK round head ratchet click and if you buy one of these I think you'll agree. It's smooth, very quiet, very positively engaging and very comfortable in hand. Well balanced, -extremely- well polished and best of all it's still made in the USA (unlike most).

This ratchet is easily one of my new favorite 3/8 ratchets (and I have a number of them!) and I'd gladly buy another or recommend it to anyone else looking for a good 3/8 ratchet (take a hint!).

Buy one for yourself and see why people love SK ratchets so much, and why this particular design has been around for several decades. Put one in your hand you'll be sold on it, without a doubt.

I have had a 3/8 ratchet like this since my tools were stolen back in 1976. I have a backup of the same ratchet ,which is even older.38 years later it works as well as it did when I bought it. Its strong point back then as now is that its manufacturing tolerance was much closer than the rest and there is little slop side to side and it is of 60 tooth design. The finer tooth construction is of greatest use when your working in tight quarters without a lot of swing room. This ratchet will grab on the reverse swing at 6 degrees versus 10 degrees for a 36 tooth ratchet. I have sk,craftsman, easco ,Williams and have worked with snap-on. Although its handy sometimes, ratchets with a lever can be a real pain to deal with in close quarters especially when your having to deal with no visibility of the nut or bolt. A head that is not round also causes access problems in close quarters. The quick release on the craftsmans are nice but after I was using one 8 years back, releasing the transmission linkage on an explorer and the darn socket accidently released and bounced on my head..I stopped using it.
The thing I like the most about this ratchet over my others is that by opening it up every year or so and relubing it with fresh light grease and oil it turns in reverse with minimum drag. This way when the ratchet stops ratcheting ,the nut or bolt is now finger loose.
To the person that broke theirs with a cheater bar: I would be too embarrassed to tell that story....hope you weren't working on something expensive with a customer watching.
Even if you already have a snap on,craftsman, or whatever...I recommend buying one of these and use it when your in a situation requiring finesse.

This is a replacement for an original piece which my husband lost after 40 years as a professional mechanic. He loves it. It is very well made and just what he wanted.

My dad has a early 70's era (made in USA) 3/8 inch Husky branded ratchet that was one of my favorites to use. This SK reminds me a lot of that ratchet, and I'm really enjoying using it. Easy on the hands and well made.

I inherited one of these from my grandfather. It still holds up to abuse well, and has a very smooth ratcheting mechanism.

High quality ratchet. Not a fine tooth like the SK 1/4" drive or some other brands 3/8" ratchets, however the mechanism is smooth. The grip is comfortable unlike the rectangular handle craftsman ratchets. At times the wrench is almost too heavy when you're using smaller sockets like 7/16" (~12mm) or smaller. For smaller sockets the long SK 1/4" drive is better. I also bought the long SK 3/8" drive and prefer it to this one in 90% of cases. For the money this is a nice ratchet that should last a long time, but get the longer one in my opinion.

Very smooth and quality tool. The only reason I did not give it a five is because I used it as a replacement tool for a 3/8 drive I lost some years ago to complete my SK tool set I have had for over 20 years and the knurling does not seem as quite as nice as my 1/2 inch drive. I may be being a little too critical (these used to come in metal boxes It is all plastic nowadays). I still like them better than my USA made Craftsman.

Overall this is a very good quality tool and a better price on AMAZON than going to the next town to buy it from Granger.

The ratchet mechanism is smooth and strong. My only complaint is the chrome around the top of the head. There are several inconsistencies in the chrome that felt like someone had dropped it or used it as a hammer. As much as it costs I expect a flawless finish. I sent it back and got another one that had the same problem. I sent that one back and bought a Tekton for much less that seems just as strong and a perfect finish for much less.
