I've been trying to find the correct jack for our Model K (or a period correct jack). No jack, but idid find this "Accessory Book" put out by Ford in 1907. I was surprised by the number of accessories Ford advertised.
Two example pages:
Like the ball peen hammer in the kit.
Never know when you might need that.
I want an 'inclinometer'!
one of those Springfield Speedos recently sold on ebay for over 800 bucks
Every airplane has an inclinometer - even the biggies. It's just a ball in a U shaped tube, mounted on the instrument panel, and stays centered in coordinated turns. It's not for climb and descent like the one for cars.
Thanks for all the work you do, Rob.
Rob, on a recent tour I wish I had my ball peen hammer... had to borrow one from Matt Ryan!
Here I am (baldish head) pounding on the rivet with Matt (black cap) bucking.
That Ball Peen hammer saved the tour for me! It is also essential to have whenever you want to show off your dancing skills and vast vocabulary!
I wonder if that "French Dragon" horn illustrated in the catalogue is the same one that was used on some early Ts, ID'd on shipping invoices only as "Dragon", and which so many of us have been wondering what it looked like.
Ralph, thank you.
I like the tool kit (with ball peen hammer) too.
I assume these items are included in Ford's 1907 audit as "sundries". Seen on the far right bottom (Net Profit), Sundries provide significant income for Ford Motor Company.
I notice the price is without tools! Why would the touring and runabout use different tools? By the way, I saw your car at Hershey.
The K uses several tools such as a larger hubcap wrench and a large waterpump wrench that NRS wouldn't have. Also, there may have been some magneto tools too. I don't have a tool roll list (and would like to find one). In general bigger tools, so probably a larger tool roll is my guess.
On my way home now. I left Hershey at 3:30 this morning.

Thanks Rob! I'll bet that that IS what the Ts used. Only, probably, configured for LHD.
