the sockets and universal read
= JS USA =

Those closeout sockets from the cheap tool store were just marked = USA = and were marked much deeper.

A bit of Googling turned up a pair of identical WILDE USA stamped ratchets.

I know they probably didn't make them, but they were identical.

The ratchet looks Like a Stanley or an older Husky to me.

The selector does match what I've seen with the Stanley professional 3/8 ratchets, not the 1/4 ratchets I've seen though.
Stanley is definitely a good fit for sure.

It it turns out the spinner handle is 100% identical to the Blackhawk GW9550 , well that's another Stanley / Proto produced piece in this set..
I wouldn't be surprised if everything in this set was made by Stanley / PROTO.


Edit: the universal is a dead ringer for the GW 957A, I think this whole set probably was manufactured by Stanley / Proto.
On the outside the sockets don't match the Blackhawk GW 612m 12mm I have, but the machining on the inside definitely does.

I had a JS ratchet that was a dead ringer for an S-K TUFF 1. At the time I didn't know it was a good design and a friend liked the fine action so I sold it to him. Now I know better.

We now you know if you ever see another one I guess.

The ratchet in my set is pretty nice in my opinion, the selector is steel and overall it operates smooth enough.
It's definitely smoother than that Blackhawk 1/4 you sent me, now it's got the thumb wheel which I like and practically speaking the ratchet works just fine so it won't be going anywhere.
