Can you repair a ratchet wrench?
Don’t toss it, rebuild it. In most cases, you can slap yours back into shape with just a good cleaning and new grease. But if you’ve broken a spring or a pawl, you’ll need to buy a rebuilding kit. If your ratchet doesn’t use snap rings, it’ll come apart with either a hex wrench or a screwdriver.
Are Craftsman tools Still lifetime warranty?
Craftsman’s warranty page still lists a full lifetime warranty. But the bottom line is if your tool breaks, you may want to call Craftsman customer service first at 888-331-4569, if you don’t have a Sears nearby, because you may not always be able to get a replacement at Lowe’s.
