It's a gearwrench Pass Thru Gear Wrench Socket set.
Other brands have these pass threw sets also. Craftsman etc.

And it the best wrench for plugs ever! IMHO!!!!!:D

Al,
I love this wrench also!
I bought this initially for the #5 plug with tight header clearance and it has already paid for itself! :yes:
I got the craftsman brand.

I'm able to get all my plugs with a Snap-on flex head, 1" extension and or knurled thumb extension. For reinstall you can't beat an old straight plug boot.

I've never used anything fancy, just normal wrenches and sockets.

But sometimes I have a little trouble with #6 I think it was, so this might come in handy.

Craftsman plug socket cut down to do the same thing along with a ratchet wrench. :yes:

HA! I wish mine were that accessible. #5 on drivers bank is a little tight, but #6 on passenger side is impossible. Takes an open end to get it. #8 takes an open end angled from the top as much as possible, and a crescent to turn the open end.

My next build will definitely have different headers. Of course my next build plan is to shoehorn a 572 in, so . . . . . .

I use a spark plug socket ground down to the bare minimum and an offset box wrench,but that gearwrench set up looks like the one to have. Too many tools is only a problem when you don't put them away.

I had an offset boxend that was perfect for my old headers--then some POS stole my tools at the track! Never been able to find another one with the same offset.
My current headers can use a socket on some plugs, but I'm so used to doing it with a boxend, I rarely think about using one. It only takes a few minutes to change them, so it's not a big deal.
