A 1/4 drive 5/8ths socket with a 1/4 to 3/8 adapter will work with a ratchet.
I think that I used the mini ratchet with the socket. It has got to the point that I grab the mini ratchets first for most jobs, comes in 1/4 and a reversible 1/4--3/8 inch and is only about 3 inches long from Northern Tool. I break loose with a wrench and use the ratchet to remove the bolt or nut. Next to the 3/8 air ratchet the best tool in my tool box.
