Over at Amazon, this Gearwrench Roto Ratchet set is on sale for $30 with free shipping. These ratchets feature non-locking rotating heads that can swing a full 180°. An adjustment screw allows you to dial in the friction if you prefer a stiffer rotation.
I have a set of these ratchets, and they often come in handy when I’m driving long or larger fasteners and need greater torque than can be applied using an ordinary screwdriver. First, the ratchet head is set inline so the ratchet can be spun like a screwdriver, and for final tightening it’s rotated to the normal 90° position. The reverse sequence can be used for fastener removal.
The set includes 1/4″ and 3/8″ ratchets, both which have comfortable cushion grips.

This deal was found by using our Amazon deals search tool. While the discount is not really “67%” since the list price is bogus, $30 is still lower than the $45-60 street price.
