Ratchet wrench, a ratchet wrench used to rotate a bolt or nut placed in a narrow or inaccessible location, the ratchet wrench is rotatably connected to the end of the operating rod. The ratchet wrench comprises: a heavy block connected with the operating rod, the heavy block can slide along the length direction of the operating rod, and the front heavy block bearing part is provided on the operating rod at the front of the heavy block to block the impact of the heavy block. Alternatively, there is a rear weight bearing portion on the operating lever at the rear of the weight that blocks the impact of the weight.
How to choose the proper drive socket set wrench ratchet
About the number of Teeth
Generally, the greater the number of teeth, the finer the teeth, the less torque it can withstand, but the shorter the rotation distance of each tooth, the smaller the angle. For example, 72 teeth are 5 degrees, and 45 teeth are 8 degrees. The smaller the number of teeth, the thicker the teeth and the greater the torque that can be tolerated.
Therefore, simply saying that the number of teeth is better or the number of teeth is less is not rigorous, and the tool must be selected reasonably according to the specific use requirements. The more the number of teeth, the easier it is to control in a narrow space while the teeth become thinner and smaller, and the teeth are easy to break when force is applied. On the other hand, with a small number of teeth, it is not easy to break when applying force. But it is not easy to control in a small space. This is roughly the same as the gearbox on the car. The high-speed gear is easy to break, while the low-speed gear will not. Each has its own advantages.
