S-K Introduces New Fine Tooth Palm Control Ratchets
CHICAGO (May 7, 2003) - SoK Hand Tool has introduced its new line of Fine Tooth Palm Control Ratchets, available in 1/4" (No 3866), 3/8"(No 3886), and 1/2"(No 3896) drive versions and in a 3 piece set (No 4533). This new generation of ratchet delivers trademark SoK performance and represents the very essence of SoK Power and Precision. The combination of a 72-tooth mechanism and a compact ratchet head design delivers the accessibility necessary to fit into the tightest of work spaces, great for inaccessible fasteners that don't have a lot of clearance. Torque is transferred through 17 teeth during use, with each tooth bearing only 6% of the drive load, providing the strength and durability needed by today's technician. The New SoK Fine Tooth Ratchet is quick and easy to use: a thumbwheel reversing mechanism enables easy one-handed change of direction while a free-wheeling back plate allows application of steadying pressure without accidental reversing.
