Conductor562 Posted November 16, 2012 Report Share Posted November 16, 2012 Few things in life bring me more joy than starting a project with a smooth as silk, American made ratchet. If you're anything like me and can't sleep at night knowing your ratchets aren't in tip top shape then I have a couple of products to suggest. Super Lube 21030 Grease is perfect for ratchet lubrication. It does a fantastic job and doesn't leak out of the ratchet and make a mess in your box like 3 in 1 or the "Red lube of love". At less than $5 a tube it's definitely worth giving it a try.Certain types of ratchets feature a bearing at the bottom of the gear head that allows the pawl to pivot when reversing directions. These are especially annoying and almost impossible to effectively compress when servicing. Snap-On has you covered! The SPP744 is a little tool designed especially for this purpose. It is available on their website (linked above) for under $1. Other than having the distinction of being possibly the only tool marked Snap-On that doesn't require a loan to purchase, it makes life WAY easier when trying to service these types of ratchets. At $ .89 even the most budget conscious among us can justify ordering an extra.How else can you make your life this much easier for $6 ? 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
