Last June I visited the Craftsman Experience in Chicago to teach a workshop, and noticed quite a few Craftsman tools used in unconventional ways. No, there weren’t any Craftsman tool box speaker systems, at least not yet, but there was a ratcheting toilet paper holder.
And yes, the ratchet was still at least semi-functional. I did not try to remove it from its socket, but it did rotate with ease. There were a number of other Craftsman products in the bathroom, most notably a wall cabinet and various slat-wall-style VersaTrak panels and accessories.
We’ve seen DIYers use wrenches as drawer pulls, but it doesn’t look like many have experimented with ratchets. What else do you suppose can be built with a working (or damaged) ratchet?
