    I’ve been searching the Internet trying to find this tool. I had one back in the sixties — it was a Craftsman 1/2″ drive inline ratchet — 1/2 inch input/1/2 inch output with a ring around the outside control control the ratchet direction. You could attached it to a sliding Tee handle or a breaker bar and turn it into a ratcheting tool. Very handy. Mine was lost when my truck was stolen in the eighties and it’s something I haven’t been able to replace.

    Anyone ever see one of those or remember them?

    I have one from Craftsman as well, turns anything into a ratchet. They still make them I just forget what they are called. Maybe a ratchet adapter?

    This is what you are looking for

    https://www.amazon.com/Stanley-J5447-Ratchet-Adapter-32-Inch/dp/B001HWG9HI

    Looks like Stanley, Omega, and Proto make them.

    The link has what I feel is the best quality. Snap-on may still make one as well. They are not as popular as they once were now with very long ratchets being available.

    I never knew about these before. That is awesome! I use breakers on cars some times and always swapped the bar for wrench when loose. This would save time. Thanks for this thread!
