Guess this tool!

Found this in a box of assorted bicycle parts at Trexlertown a couple of weeks ago. Neither the seller or myself know what it was used for or even if itís bicycle related. Box had among other miscellany a cottered crank set. Any guesses?

Probably obvious, but I should mention that the "hook" end swivels

Stuck seat post remover?

Some sort of bearing removal tool for BB or headset?

Definitely a tire jack of the sort that would not disintegrate mounting a Schwalbe Marathon Plus.

I've come back to this a few times and thought about it. I don't think it is a bike tool. But it would be a brooks rivet puller.

Well my guess is it a saddle stecher designed for horse saddles that could be used for leather brooks styles bike saddles.

What puzzles me is that I don't believe it is home made (handle is stamped not machined) yet no maker's marks!
