I’ve got a 3/8 drive snap-on ratchet that must be over 40 years old. It doesn’t get used much these days. I gave it a bit oil oil and some exercise last week and put it back in the toolbox.I have a fair bit of Halfords Professional kit at home, not too bad.
All my ratchets are Snap-on though, oldest one is 20 years old and still perfect.
Oh my early Britool stuff was AF and Metric. AF was for the hgv stuff and metric for the cars.Be still got some Bristol spanner’s that I bought when starting my apprenticeship in 1974. Mind you, they’re all A/F so not been used for years!
