T wrench marked "Hayes EB315"

Identified as "The tool is required when Hayes accessory wire wheels are fitted to model T Fords. I have these wheels on my 1925 Model T Roadster. One end of the cross tube fits the large locknut on the outer wheel bearing, which is threaded on the spindle. The other end of the tube is used to adjust the cone in the bearing, winding the cone in/out on the threads. The standard Model T tool will not fit inside the hub of the Hayes wheels.  The smaller end of the T shaft on the Hayes tool fits the rear axle nut. These can be really tight, hence the twist in the shaft on the tool".
