You'll get used to it. Try buying Snap-On, I haven't broken any of thier stuff yet.

The people at Sears have a 3/8" rachet rebuild kit waiting for me behind the desk most times.

yeah, if i was making 50+K a year i would be buying better tools. but im not so....

Harbor Freight it is... good thing they have lifetime Warranty on there hand tools.
i just walked in and said "it broke" and i went back and grabbed a new one and walked out.

then go home and finished the job

the 2nd one didn't break

i was putting all my weight on it and pulling on it with all my might.

Yeah, I'm only 175lbs and I bent the .125" wall 1" square tubing I cut off for a cheater bar. It was only two foot or so long. Tools break.

Harbor Freight is the best!

It can be hard to say "it broke" with your jaw wired shut because the bar gave you a knock-out punch when it snapped! lol!
