    Wera bit ratchet

    Posted by D. Hein on Jan 25th 2024

    Handy small bit ratchet, same size as the bottle opener in the Advent calender from a couple years ago. I keep it with my Wera screwdriver so I have bits handy for around the house use. Quick shipping, ordered it when it was on Tool of the Day special.

    Nice little gem

    Great built quality with smooth gears. Holds bits tightly, and the size is great in tight spaces. Highly recommended.

    It's a Dainty Little Ratchet!

    This 1/4" ratchet will be great in tight spaces. REAL tight! The handle is big enough for 2 of my fingers. Very well made, a handy option for 'those' places. 5 stars for the tool, I took one off for the size.

    a gem of a little tool

    I have need to fit a tool into tight spaces. This gets the job done. The ratchet angle is very good. The switch is not sloppy. Easy to put bit on. Easy to remove bit. Another perfect German tool from KC

    Bought on a whim, but glad I did.

    This is an interesting and useful little tool. I have found myself using it in a couple really tight spot on my Subaru’s boxer engine and I’m sure it’ll be useful in a ton of other tight areas. Very well made like all the wera tools I’ve purchased.

    Excellent litte Ratchet

    Posted by Amit Jones on Mar 28th 2021

    This ratchet is perfect for use in small, hard to access spaces. It's pretty versatile as you can use either bits or sockets with with provided adaptor. I used this with a phillips bit, and another mini 2 ratchet with a 3/8" socket to tighten several small screws located in a tight handhole. The low profile of the ratchet allowed it to fit into the handhole where other larger ratchets were simply too tall. This is one of those tools which makes life easier when you need it. Definitely a good buy for the toolbox, or as a stocking stuffer/gift for mechanically inclined people.

    Excellent tool

    Posted by Tom Whitaker on Oct 13th 2020

    Bought this to get into tight spots and it's perfect. Nice short handle and fine tooth gears make this ideal for very tight spots. Highly recommend.
