I'm not to stoked on the craftsman 3/8 rachets. Have a couple dead ones in my box. Billings pawl set up looks stout!!

....hit and miss for me with the craftsman.  find that they lock up sometimes.  beating them on concrete sometimes frees them.  lol.
do have a couple that stuck around since the high-school days. 

when they broke...they would either exchange them, or give you a rebuild kit (had to ask for that).  the craftsman part numbers changed so much over the years.....after a bit, the rebuild kits were NLA.  the only sears around here closed its doors this past spring.  it was cool to save up the broken sockets and hand them a hand full.  the 7/16" sockets seemed to break the most for me.  seen some folks selling the rebuild kits on the interweb sometimes.

so far, the billings looks the best.  don't have any recent mac, matco or snappys to look at for comparison.

my most used ratchet is this one.  williams 'super ratchet'.  need a spanner to take it apart though for a look see.
