Ummm, that's not what I said.  What I meant for you to understand is that
when you put X torque onto the input of the 2079, the bolt will see Y
torque, _regardless_ of which torque wrench put it there.  X does not Equal
Y, but our uncaring bolt sees the same torque whether your wrench is 18"
long (and says X torque), or 36" long (and still says X torque).  Since the
length of the 2079 is fixed, and the torque input into it is fixed, the bolt
torque will be the same, kappiche?

BTW, I find this discussion much more enlightening than the mostly emotional
discussion about synthoils...   ;)
