this brand... not much to compliment on.  this is just my opinion.  i am tough on tools, would think that folks that care about their tools more than i, would have better luck.

the different sized ratchets vary in design and quality.  1/4" size being imo disposable.  3/8" being best.  1/2" disposable as well.

1/4" have a plastic on/off switch.  this is silly, because the on off switch holds and aligns the pawl to the gear.  see photo.  if this breaks......the pawl cannot make contact with the gear effectively.  see photo.

another usa branded ones, the pawl casting was off.  it could only make contact in clockwise position.  (the plastic on/off switch was not causing this. see photos.  all 3.......made in differing decades had this plastic switch.

the above two ratchets usa made.  the chinese, was the best of the 3...but worst chrome, and thinnest casting.

oldest ratchet.....1990's was the thickest casting.  middle rachet 2000's..........bottom rachet chinese 2010 or abouts?
