Default Unusual Speed Wrench

It is to me, I have never seen another.

The indexing socket head is seized. When working properly it slides in and out of the shaft, locking it in position or freeing it to be indexed to a different socket.

I remember one like it in dad's shop. With the socket at the 90 deg. angle you could apply more torque to stubborn nuts....once they're loose, rotate to the inline position and 'speed' it off.

The only difference appears to be the 'socket selection keeper' that slides to keep it from turning while speed cranking. (also the wooden handles)
