When I attach the tool directly to the hub using the wheel bolts, and I extend the drive screw until it engages the shaft, it's within about three turns of its limit - probably 3mm of purchase left in it.
I could buy a little more purchase if I bolted the tool to the hub with regular bolts instead of the wheel bolts - maybe an additional 20mm.
However, the spline portion of the shaft appears to be 50-60mm, so I don't think 20mm will get me home.
