I was looking for a good long handle 1/2" drive ratchet. Trav pointed me to this beast, and I bought one. It is stronger than most breaker bars, and has 90 teeth for a 4 degrees of arc swing. Sorry for the large picture. [Linked Image]

Yes, it is very well made.

Hazet makes an great ratchet, the 36 tooth is also smooth with little back drag. I used the 36T for over 30 years, it was solid and reliable. The one you have is rated for 1000nm (737 ft.lb).

Yes they are nicely recessed....but I managed to break the lever off one of my 1/2'' Hazet ratchets. It's now my home ratched, and fixed with a wingnut. Warranty ? I have 2 Hazet 1/2'', one a flexhead - ''they don't make that model anymore, so we can't do a replacement. '' Up yours too as we say here.

That'd be annoying. Snap-On had a full repair kit in stock for my 1940's 1/2" drive unit shrug

Hazet makes kits for the old ones. Post the model and I can probable find/get one. For my 30 year old kits and grip are still available.
