EZ red long ratchets
 
Anyone use any of these. I has opportunity to use one of their ratchets helping a friend with a front end repair. Seemed like it was fairly decent quality. Fine tooth action and seemed strong. Pulled a screw in ball joint out of an 80's dodge van with a 2 ft cheater. He said they were fairly cheap. Just curious if anyone has experience with these.

Nice ride Chet. I havent heard of the ratchet you speak of, I would like to see a picture of it if you can. Where did you get it?

I used one it wasnt mine. It was like 24" long and had a nice feel. 72 tooth and seemed real strong. I am usually not a fan of cheap tools but this one seemed well built for the money. He said the set of 3 cost like $80.
If you have ever pulled one of those screw in ball joints you know it takes some pull to get them to crack

It takes stones to move a rusty screw in ball joint, both the ratchet and the gearhead need some stones.Been there done that, last one I did I used the torch to "coax" it to even move. ;)

I was impressed. I had the ratchet and a 2 or 3 foot piece of pipe on the end. Thought for sure it would break the ratchet.
