If you work on machinery, whether for business or pleasure, you’ll want to include one of these handy items in your toolbox. The Gimbal Ratchet from GearWrench could save you time as well as a few skinned knuckles when tightening or removing fasteners where space is limited and where a standard ratchet is too big or awkward to get the job done. As the name implies, the Gimbal 72-tooth ratcheting mechanism actually pivots up to five degrees, so you can attach or loosen most common nuts or bolts from most awkward angles. The Gimbal sells for $20-$25 (depending on the size) and is available in 1/4-inch and 3/8-inch sizes. Purchase from www.gearwrench.com.
