Funny this had come up. My dad bought me a set of Craftsman's tools back in the summer of 1981. After 37 years my 1/4 drive went to shit and the little ball that holds the socket has worn out.

I remember you used to be able to buy the guts and replace everything but why bother when I can get a new one.

Ace Hardware will still replace and that's what I did.

When I got home with my new 1/4 drive:
1. It's made in China
2. It has plastic pieces instead of all metal.

It doesn't feel like it should.
So now instead of 37 years you can replace the broken one after 6 months!
