For anyone else with the tool: Bob Rosato came up with the answer: The
odd hole in the handle of the 2079 accepts a 3/4" drive. So you could use
it with a 3/4" drive torque wrench. Or a 3/4" drive breaker bar. It's an
odd hole because it's made to accept the 3/4" drive at several different
angles. Kind of like those famous Audi triple square bolts, eh?
