Default What is this tool?

I guess it is for pipe fitting but it seems to be made for a specific application, does anybody know what? Organizing the shop here and am wondering what to do with this thing.

An extractor on one leg and what looks to be a 1/8" pipe thread chaser on the other. The other two are what looks to be a spanner and a twelve point socket.

It looks to me like a truck tire size valve stem tool.

Yup, tire valve stem repair tool of some sort. Depending on size it could be for car/truck stems or it could be used on off-highway tires that use fluid for weight...

I think this ^^^ is correct. It looks similar to a tire stem tool, but tire valve stems on all the tires I've ever worked on are the same size whether they are car, truck or tractor tires.....which is smaller than what this tool looks like.

Looks to be a four way grease fitting tool. Used to replace fittings and remove broken fittings and repair inside threads.

On some industrial equipment (my Hyundai wheel loader is one of them) has large valve stems. You need an adapter to put air into them.

Dave, I don't doubt that there is some bigger stuff (stems) out there to air tires up with. Some of those huge tires would take all day to air up without them. JUst saying what I worked on was normal for my area.

The give away is the one cut on the tool for right angle grease fittings. Also the one other end is much more like an Ez-out for a snapped off fitting.
JMO from the old guy that even has a special tool to loosen radiator pet cock drains.
