    picked up an old one at a garage sale. I know SnapOn will only replace the internal gears under warranty.

    Has anyone upgraded to a finer tooth gear kit on a ratchet, or would they not fit?

    I looked around online and couldnt find anything

    1/2" SL715 if it helps.

    SO customer service is awesome. I had an older sl710 that wasn't in the best shape. Still ratcheted, just looked like crap. Emailed their CS and I had a new ratchet on my doorstep in two days.

    Yep, their CS is tops!

    If ratchet is worn out, they will replace as a unit.

    the one i've dealt with in the past will only replace the internals. so if you have a 30+ year old ratchet with 32 teeth, you're getting the same kit replaced.

    It depends on your Snap on guy/girl. My old owner was awesome.

    The new owner is such a complete dick that i won't buy a damn thing from him. Snap On won't do shit about him either.

    I bought a Wera 3/8 ratchet a couple years ago, love it. Broke a tooth in it, contacted them and they sent me a new one, no questions asked. I will buy more of their tools for sure.

    The last time I had to call to get tools fixed, they wanted to look up the purchase receipt to make sure that I was the original purchaser. They told me that they won’t warranty the purchase of used tools.

    they're sending me a UPS label to ship my old one to them and evaluate for warranty. since it's old, they offered to replace it with a modern 80 tooth model. thanks for the tip.

    My Snap On dealer told me the "Lifetime" warranty was more like a "Dog's Lifetime" warranty. Like 20 years.

    the person i spoke to said some tools dating back to WWII they wont warranty, but that's about it
