Cumming, GA --- March 23, 2016 ... AutomationDirect now offers Wera Zyklop metal ratchets and ratchet sets. Available in 1/4", 3/8" and 1/2" drive sizes, the ratchets feature a fine 72-tooth ratchet mechanism with a low return angle of 5 degrees to allow fast and precise work in small spaces. The ratchet head is fitted with a switch lever for convenient change of direction and a ball lock securely holds sockets and attachments ensuring safe operation; to release the socket, simply press the release button. The ratchet's slim design and forged, chrome-molybdenum steel construction has no torque limitation and is ideal for use in tight areas.

Also added, the Wera Zyklop mini bit ratchet ($34) is designed for easy, flexible fastening using 1/4" bits and sockets.
