Question about Astro Pneumatic 3/8" Palm Ratchet Wrench
Lets picture a helicopter. the rotors on top spin. Why doesnt the bottom part spin? it is controlled by a back rotor to keep from spinning. Same concept with the air ratchet. you have a loose bolt that you are putting back together. right now that bolt is loose. Once it tightens and stops, guess what is stopping that ratchet from turning? Your hand... good guess!! now lets say you have a Snap-On FAR 7200 air ratchet rated at SEVENTY foot-lbs... When that bolt tightens and stops turning, your HAND had BEST be prepared to take on that FULL SEVENTY pounds of torque! just a fair warning! I LOVE my air ratchet!!!

Air ratchets can hurt you. Please be careful if you are new to working with this type of tool. You can get your fingers caught between the ratchet and things you are working on, and due to the fact your hand is caught, your fingers are still pressing on the trigger you can't get loose. Watch for this and learn how to feather the trigger only going full throttle when you have room and a good hold on the ratchet.

Like any power tool, air tools are safe to operate when the proper precautions are followed. Always read and follow the manufacturer's recommendations.
