    Know what you mean about old stuff, I'm pretty anal about my stuff and when I broke a screwdriver I started looking for a new Sykes Picavant one, eventually found one on Ebay, under VINTAGE TOOLS!!!!! Then thought about it, and I bought them 25 years ago!

    The first of the ratchets has arrived,I think this one will make a big difference.
    the extra length will give me more power but itís not to long.
    every review I read said get the locking swivel version for stability,you pull the switch back and it locks the head in the position you want.
    this is a 1/4Ē very nicely balanced and not heavy,Iíve given it a good clean.

    ive got mixed up though and ended up with 3 x 3/8Ē ratchets coming [i made 2 offers couldnít go back on it Ebay gave me a warning already for sending my phone no].

    Two things here John,

    If that flex head ratchet is Snap On .....................it is I and not Darren who is the dutchman


    Secondly, if you want to send your phone number to someone on ebay, write it down, take a picture of it and send it as an attachment as their software doesn't read images
    What Goes Around..........!!!

    oh now I get it I thought he had something against snap on.

    the variations of tools and ratchets and indentifying them spun my head.
