After some dutiful service, my Pittsburgh Pro Flex-Head Ratchet isn’t as tight as it used to be. It still works but you have to hold the head while lining it up on a fastener or else it will flop all over the place. I took it apart to investigate and got an idea for a really quick and easy fix for floppy ratchets. This should work for any flex-head ratchet without detents.
I think I fixed it!
After I made the last video on this tool, I couldn’t stop thinking about it. I was really puzzled.
Sssh… It’s a secrete.
This fun little video is the result of some brainstorming new hammer ideas for Trusty-Cook over on the Garage Journal forums.
Sadly they don’t offer a hammer like this yet in real life but maybe some day!

Well maybe they should be more specific in their marketing. The package doesn’t say ANYTHING about BRAKES.
A quick look at the Nupla Strike-Pro STPN16. I show it in action (off-screen) and then give an example of a secondary use for this tool besides beating on stuff…
