I have gotten away with a cheap 20 dollar chinese tool kit for years, Performs just like my other name brand tools. I just bought a name brand ratchet handle, name brand torque wrench to go along with the Chinese stuff (those chinese ratchets WILL fail over time). You really can't tell the difference in performance.
You're soooo wrong...the fineness of the teeth,,and what they're made of is a big deal in ratchets..how far you have to turn the ratchet to get a click...means a ton sometimes...how heavy,,lay on your back working overhead and you'll think more about weight...use it a lot and you'll learn to appreciate the differences in handles and how they feel and fit your hand...oh man there is soooooo much difference. You ain't doin no real wrenchin.
