I decided to give Wera’s Bit Ratchet a try, and ordered one as part of a Bit-Check set. The Bit Ratchet is a 60-tooth miniature ratchet designed for use with 1/4″ hex screwdriving bits, and comes with a 1/4″ square drive adapter. The Bit-Check kit also includes a Wera Rapidaptor quick-release extension, 28 bits, and a case.
I knew that the Wera Bit Ratchet was a compact ratchet, but it’s far smaller than I imagined! This is not necessarily a bad thing, I’m just a bit surprised. For what it’s worth, the ratchet feels extremely well built, and I find myself really liking it. I only wish that the bit case was more pocketable.
