Sometimes, you donﾒt have power and sometimes, you just want to work with your hands. Either way, thereﾒs nothing wrong with going ﾑold schoolﾒ from time to time, especially when you know most power tools just arenﾒt as responsive as most hand tools. The Ratchet Brace is chrome-plated for corrosion resistance and has a four-jaw chuck that accepts round or hex shank bits up to 1/2". The ratchet movement has twelve points and the locking mechanism works in three positions, locked, clockwise and counter-clockwise. Made in England.
