Ratchets are inherently Opposite-locked, right?

So post yours! I had to fix one, which led to oiling the rest, so I thought I’d document the local collection. Mostly inherited, the only “modern” ones in the bunch are the unbranded flex-head and the Harbor Freight torque wrench. The rest are SK, Husky or old-school Craftsman and they have never let me down.

Here’s hoping i get to pass them on to another generation of wrenchers someday. Today’s challenge was teaching my youngest son to rotate his tires and change his oil which went as planned without swearing or injury which is always a plus. Stay safe Oppo
