I know its not model T but its odd. when I bought the Tractor trailer load of Model T parts a few years ago these odds and ends was in the lot.
it says J-1580 BUICK 1941 ENG JACK on the side. the top is adjustable and the bottom looks as if it would sit over something. the valve stem cap is there for sizing. anyone know how it is used or if it is a true tool?

It looks like an inspection jack used with a surface plate. I've used similar to level and set up parts for dimensional inspection.

These kind of jacks are used in machine shops to align a work piece on a milling machine or vertical boring mill.

Looks like an inspection tool to me, concur with Tom.
