Need a manual for a Ingersoll Rand Model 111

If you go online to Ingersol Rand, click on air tools. You should be able to find the IR-111 knuckle saver ratchet. Once there you should be able to click on a link that opens up the exploded view of internal parts. Otherwise go to your local air tool repair centre, they can help.

What sockets fit

Any sockets will fit the ratchet, 3/8 drive, the impact drive is 1/2 drive, and they make hardened sockets for it. And I can't really make out the last tool there in the kit. The impact tool will take normal sockets for reg duty use but not for wheel lugs and such, they will crack, but if you buy Craftsman, they will replace it. I have only cracked one in thirty years. But I also have the hardened set of sockets. Hope this helps.

I have a brand new husky 1/2'' air ratchet. It was working fine yesterday and today I went to use it, no go. When I hit the trigger, air just shoots out of the release port. The ratchet does not turn. ...

There could be a couple of things wrong with it. First and foremost make sure your compressor has the correct cfm's to operate the tool. Psi is only half the battle when it comes to air tools. Second, make sure that your reversing switch on the ratchet is properly engaged. Sometimes it will get stuck in the middle. You may have a crimped hose so check the hose. There may have been debris in the line that got into the motor. If this is the case, then you are going to need to have to take it apart to see what is wrong. If you just bought it though you should take it back to Home Depot. I had a customer who basically had the same thing happen. He used the ratchet twice and the valve pin cap just popped off. It is plastic and just broke in two. I tried to look up the part and it is unavailable. Husky is made by Campbell Hausfeld for Home Depot. Sometimes it is not that easy to get parts for certain models. I believe they make a run of tools and then discontinue the line they just made, and do not make parts available. You could try taking it back to Home Depot and swapping it out for a new one. Or my suggestion would be get your money back and by a better brand ratchet like IR or CP.

When you put a socket on my 3/8 air ratchet you can hold it and it doesnt turn the socket

Make sure your tank is pressurized before using, Also, ratchets have an air adjustment knob that you can adjust how much pressure and power the ratchet puts out. Make sure you oil ratchet before each use with air tool oil

Ratchet troubleshooting

Squeeze 4-5 drops of pneumatic tool oil into the air fitting daily. If you use the tool all day, repeat the process half-way through the day. If you don't use the tool very often, just oil it when the tool is used.
