FAR 25 Snap-on

Little problem with this thing that could be fixed with a little part. I can't get a part number out of Snap-on who would like to just sell the whole ratchet. The response apparently comes from a dealer, dunno.

The part is a little shouldered bushing, hat shaped with teeth around the rim of the larger part. The teeth set down inside the ratchet drive casing. The shouldered rise is about 3/32 high. It lets the slip clutch back against the drive to make the ratchet advance.

Would anyone know what that part # is and/or if it is even sold?

Yep, but you have to keep buying it. The premium is a little pricey. They do a flat rate fix for $100.00 or buy the whole drive head for $125.00. The ratchet is worth about $50.00. That bushing is worth about $5.00

They do pay shipping, but not the fixing.

Snap-on does what that no other ratchet does? Just the spelling. I have an Ingersol Rand that takes care of business and I've had it longer than the Snap-on. The Snap-on gave out and the Ingy keeps going.

Your ten cents Dyna whatsit lifetime beats a $125.00 repair any day.

I don't get the part about having to keep buying it to get the warranty - either Snap-On has a lifetime warranty or it does not. I thought they did but you make it sound like they do not

Though I don't know exactly what model you have....it appears they sell repair kits for most ratchets for about $10?

Oh duh....now I see...it's an air ratchet. And where they say....view parts...it says no parts available.

Ah, the 'air' part is important - tools like that often have limited warranties
