    I still have a few craftsman ratchet rebuild kits left for sale or will trade for other tools. Need ratchet number, usually on handle. PM me if interested.

    Kolbalt was made by Williams at one time too. Alot of the tools are made by the same company. There is a small plant by me that makes Craftsman rachets and wrenches...Bob

    IIRC there is a plant in ohio that makes wrenches for just about everyone, snapon, mac, matco, craftsman, and i think a few others, a friend of mines dad had a company that treated waste oil and they used to haul from that plant

    Fastenal sells the craftsman ratchet rebuild parts. Just take the the model number with you and they can get you the parts. Sorry don't know how much they cost. BTW I like the crafman professional 3/8 drive ratchet, for 1/4 drive we hve 5 or 6 of the standard craftsman ratchets and for 1/2 we have a cratsman standard ratchet. We have a mac 1/4 inch but it is worn out. We have 4 or 5 craftsman 3/8 drive ratchets but i like the profssonal ratchet better. We also have an old SK 3/8 drive ratchet but it doesnt get used much. We also have a Chicago Pnumatic 3/8 and 1/4 drive air ratchet that are great and get used all of the time.

    Why would anyone BUY a ratchet repair kit for a Craftsman ratchet? Take it back to Sears and get a new one!

    Thatd work extremely well untill one of two things happened...

    A: It would land point down on your foot, and be standing upright when you look down... OR

    B: You would go to break something loose and would by a freak accident slip and stab your hand on it.

    I dont doubt for a second its handy...but I use a regular spud adj. wrench when I need to use one. That way its not my primary tool, and I can just set it down on the bench.
    Precision is only as important as the project...if you're building a rocket ship...1/64" would matter. If you're building a sledgehammer...an 1/8" probably wont.
