LOL! I never heard that one before. The French Canadian tradesmen I knew when I was a kid used to call them Italian ratchets. “Look at that stripped bolt!” “Someone used an Italian ratchet on it!” No offense to Italians. Being French Canadian we tended to fight with the Italians. In a good natured way. After fighting with them my entire life. My DNA test says I’m 30% Italian. 0% French. Go figure.
