Recent tool sale finds
« on: December 07, 2018, 11:32:12 AM »
Stopped in a sale place yesterday and found these along with the New Britain brake tool posted elsewhere.

A 1/4" drive SK Wayne ratchet # 40970 that has lost the circlip that holds it together. The previous owner rigged it so it still works.  Only 4 3/4" long.

 A Proto Made In USA 3/8" drive extension only 1 3/4" long- #559 with PO initials SC scratched on.

A lot easier to wire it up than to find a new clip--which would likely require buying a whole rebuild kit.
No more often than a fellow uses a 1/4", it wouuld be easy to just put it away and worry about other things rather than getting a correct repair for it.
The ORIGINAL Northwoods.

If anyone has the correct clip and wants the ratchet, just say so. Or if you have the clip and would send it to me, same- just say so. Would travel cheap.

I have two of those ratchets to spare, Noel, and I probably have a loose circlip in my 1/4" ratchet parts stash. I'll dig around over the weekend and get something heading your way Monday.
