Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Tool for the price. Working in a machine shop I am always drilling and tapping some piece of equipment. I used my last one under heavy use and it lasted 2 years with out a problem. Then the ratchet switch on the top broke off. If bought for home use will last a life time. May 22, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ratching tap handle These ratcheting type tap handles work extremely well in a tight fit spot. Working on autos and other things there are a lot of places that you can not get a normal tap handle into and get a full turn out of. And then you find yourself with a headache and taking it off and turning the handle around to get more rotation. That dosen't happen with these! You just turn the handle back, and keep going. Made well and work even better! Handy and must have for anyone in the auto and "handyman" club. April 17, 2010
