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?
