I've never, ever done that. However I might have put a pipe over the handle of a ratchet wrench once or twice ...

In 50 years of farming, that was our only way to loosen some bolts....if the torch wasn't close by. In later years we got a 3/4" drive torque multiplier, that made easy work of loosening/tightening disk harrow gangs.

I've tried to do it, without much success. I have put a large screwdriver thru the box end with greater success in certain situations.

I actually have a wrench with the open part ground down so I could put my high lift handle over it. It worked...

Lol...many, many times.
Just did this the other day. Rear caliper mounting bracket bolts on an '10 Nissan Altima. Always takes me a minute to figure out how to configure them to go the right way.... Lol... every time.
