Neat idea for a thread.  Hope you dont mind but I moved it to the tool shed.  Seems a better spot and up the page some.

Joe, the Billings rachet looks cool.  Looks like die cast zinc alloy (Zamak) any idea on the vintage?

first billings i have seen.  wondered if the guts were made with the same metal.  took apart to see.  only the back cover and on/off switch were made of that metal.  it is not steel.

1/2" ratchet......inside looks pretty stout.   the gear was at least 3/8" thick, pawl about the same.  both steel.

was a S.O.B. to puzzle back together after stepping away after cleaning, eating dinner and a beer.  hahaha.

don't think anyone will ever find the need to see how these go together.....but grabbed some pics.

edit. added photo and a couple words.

the craftsman bx internals look very similar to the snap shown below.

suggest that you don't take this one apart.  bear to get the ball bearing back in the pawl.

this one is the fleet brand.

best gear in the bunch......but weird gear/pawl setup and does not seem very stout at all.
