They are nice no question. I have one - complete with blue handle - and like it. For situations where nit's handy it's handy. For everything else it's of little value. To me they are worth no more than about $40 and I paid much less than that for mine. The deals are still out there but for some reason ebay commands a premium more than double the value of the ratchet. Sears would be smart to revive the design.
