the ratchet is military, but a good dealer will repair it for you if you ask them to. might have to do a little digging in the repair kit box.

Even 11

My wife had a couple address of garage sales she wanted to go to today. This one wasn't on the list, we just happened upon it. We were on our way home, so it was probably around noon or so. The 1/2" drive stuff was an $8 set. Everything else was in a ammo can he wanted $10 for. So I go to grab my cash, but by this time all I have is $16 left. I never haggle of the price at garage sales, if if a deal I buy it, if not don't. So here I am sitting on an incredible pile of tools and I had to offer $2 under his price. The good news is he took it.

The SO ratchet is near perfect. I opened it up, cleaned and lubed it (ATF) and its like new. Not bad for a '63 ratchet!

I'm a little bummed that so many of the Plomb are bent. Ill have to look into the best way to straiten a couple of them out, but I'm guessing a little heat.
