I'd like to see how thick they are, and if the holding tool has the cutout for the recessed nuts.

If the recess is not there, the tool won't work on a V8, only a six.

Hey, I am just trying to save you guys some coin. If you want to ridicule me for doing so, the joke must be correct. What is the difference between a porcupine and a BMW? The BMW has the pricks on the inside!

That's actually not a bad price for both OP. I bought my open ended 32MM wrench for $7. Luckily, I did not need the wp holder.
