I have used a BIG slotted screwdriver or a newer tire iron in the past, but neither of those work as well as the correct Dodge Brothers tool.

Oh, by the way, the light does work. However, do not depend on it. Zeke

Blue Point Hub puller. 

Shown being used on my 1930 Ford Pickup,

and shown in the 1933 Snap-On / Blue Point catalog.

I love this tool and the way it oozes Quality.

I don’t understand that tool... what I mean is... I don’t understand why I don’t own that tool.

Don't ask me to identify this, other than it's an old jack, or ask where it came from. My favorite daughter found it somewhere and knew I'd like it. If anyone can shed any light on it, go for it.

Looks like a wagon jack, is there a date on it ?

James,

That thing looks dangerous.

Take it out of the garage and keep it by the fireplace !

This may be missing a pawl, or something that hooks in the holes. Although perhaps it is designed to take the full lift in one stroke, without walking up the column.

 

A similar (heavier) Australian version is the Trewallah Jack. Lifts wagons, trucks, railway lines, buildings, etc. I have retired this in favour of one of the new-fangled Hi-Lift jacks.

 

Back to the OP. I'd be lost without my leg vise.  I grew up with them, and still use it most days.
