Wright 47-H Metric 3/8-drive "Tootsie Roll" set
« on: December 07, 2012, 10:06:27 AM »
Just scored this off of eBay last week. Gonna be a user in my Toyota truck "just in case" tools. Missing only two original sockets, but I found stand-ins for now to put it into service.

Nice set!

That ratchet appears identical to the Powr-Kraft I picked up today.  I think I now know where the Powr-Kraft came from.  I was hoping it may have been Thorsen sourced...clearly not.

Oily,

I've read somewhere before that the Powr-Kraft rats with handles like this were sourced from Wright. I think a couple other brands were made by them as well.

Does yours have anything on it? This one says "PAT D199149-OIL ONLY" on the underside, the top just says "WRIGHT -USA- 3400  R"
