Stanley No. 945-12 IN Ratchet Brace 12 inch swing
This is a nice clean ratchet brace marked "STANLEY 945-12IN" on the steel handle arm, and is also marked "STANLEY MADE IN U.S.A." on the chuck. It has good, solid, clean, solid hardwood handles both in very good condition with some minor wear on the thick black finish, the thick black paint is nearly completely off the head handle. The brace is 14.5" long overall and a 12" diameter swing. This is a clean brace, with little wear, good clean darkened metal surfaces, about 90% of the original nickel plating is intact. A good working 2-jaw chuck (spring loaded jaws) and ratchet system. The head end handle is ball bearing type bushing, spins freely. An upper mid-range quality tool that is still in very good working condition, looks nice too.
