TRK do yourself a favor and get some Snap On ratchets. If they're too pricey for you get some SK ratchets. Graingers sells them.
I was in the tool department at Sears a few days ago. Nearly all of the Craftsman tools are imported from China now according to the department manager.

If your looking for ratchets I'd look at the gearwrench or sk. You get the nice features without the tool truck price.

On Craftsman ratchets I bought one of the newer (small)socket sets for some added sizes. The rachet that came with the set seemed well finished and the reversing lever seemed to hold okay. Now I have as a base work a craftsman set from around 2000 with 1/4, 3/8, and 1/2 drive ratchets and they are all still going fine. I was going to junk the 1/4 but I ended up taking it apart and lubing it and that fixed it. I find that of the guys I work with all the ratchets(sk, snap on, mac, craftsman, and others) are about equal in there problems(ie not that many) it more how hard it is to get them fixed. The guys with snap on stuff have to wait along time generally as the local guy quit coming since we don't buy enough from him and the Snap on industrial dealer only comes once a quarter or so. The mac guy comes a couple times a month so the wait isn't bad for him and he doesn't give you a hassle with warranty. Though I think in the end craftsman is the easiest to get replaced. I would just make sure that They trade you the right sockets 6pt to 6pt etc.. or get a rebuild kit for you old ratchet rather than a whole new Chinese one.
