Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2016: Help ID part. Jack extension handle? Bubba? OE?

Picked up at the family barn. Handle is curved, rod had a threaded end where the oval hollow tube is at the other end. Rod could have been a brake rod at one time. With the roun tube being somewhat flattened, it looks like it would be a extension handle for a floor jack to turn and realease the pressure key. But they wouldn't have those in the Model T era.

Some other use for a T? Not T at all? Not even car related?

Thanks in advance.

I thick that could be used to reach under the car and open and close the oil level peacocks so you don't have to lay under the car.

I was trying to figure out a way to use it on the gas bowl shutoff for the same reason, but it seems to use this thing, you'd have to be directly in line with the petcocks. So oil or radiator, you'd still have to be on the groundin line with the petcocks.
But sounds like confirmation that it was a Babba tool and not a Henry tool.

Robert: A lot of that stuff was aftermarket. I have a few of one style that were give aways for Ford dealers. Has names and contact info of Dealer on them. There were hundreds of different types made. Dan
