I checked it out today, the head will not fit on the ratcheting breaker bar. But it looks like it will fit on the regular breaker.

I'll show you guys what the wife bought. Was not real happy, only had the Snap-on guy paid off for two weeks. Today he shows up and says heres the tools your wife ordered. I said OK, when? He said two weeks ago all where on back order, everythings here but the ratcheting screwdriver in pink. that will show up next week. here she found one of my old RA slips and called him up at home and ordered everything she could get that was pink. Well, I'm kinda mad but kinda not all at the same time. Heres her new tools:

sorry about that; looks like they changed suppliers for the ratcheting breaker bar; before the bar had two forks and the ratcheting mechanism went between them(which was a perfect fit for those flexheads)
i tried a normal breaker before, because i was too cheap to buy the ratcheting
and it was not as good, you would have to shim the head alot and there isnt a ball and spring to keep the head from flexing
i wish you luck tho

the new new ratcheting breaker is the same one form titan, the other HF i went to had it. I converted the flex to a long flex. It will see more uses. Love having a fine gear long flex. All the flex at the stores are 36t.

PS

I think HF went to the same supplier as lowes and titan. Some of the Pittsburgh are identical to lowes or titan/powerbuilt offerings and are made in taiwan as well.

Went to sears today to see if I could get a warranty 19mm craftsman pro long wrench which I broke. Made it do something it was not meant to. But the guy I always deal with just warranty it without question. Which was cool. But I was looking at the clearance and open box rack and found this.

1/4 flex set metric 8 piece set, missing the packaging. So I got it for 20 bucks and paid 7 buck to the 7mm. To bad craftsman does to make a 9mm 1/4 flex.

Ummm, you have a typo in there maybe but Craftsman makes 1/4" flex in 5-14, no skips. At least, they used to because I have them. 3/8" go 10-19, no skips.

they do not make a 1/4" 9mm anymore. I check with sears and google for the 9mm. But have 5-14mm minus the 9mm in 1/4" flex now. The set said 8 piece set 1/4" drive 5,6,8,10,11,12,13,14. That part of the package was intact. They skipped 7 and 9. But they carry the 7 separately.

I will need to keep an eye on ebay for that discontinue socket.
