Mystery tool

While sorting through my many cardboard boxes of tools that I have collected over the years, I came across this. I must have bought it for something, but for the life of me I can't remember what it is used for. The part in the middle is threaded, and has M14-15 and 81-9/16 etched in the side. Anybody know what it is and what it is used for?

I've used a similar tool to remove a plate under the steering wheel, I believe it was on GM vehicles. It screws on to the shaft and pushes the plate down so you can remove a snap ring

Are you high again, we all know that is the inner gear drive for the Ninja Food processor. Put down the pipe, and read a book.

It's Called a Lock Plate Depressor & Like stated above it's used to depress the lock plate enough to remove the Lock Ring & allow the Lock Plate to be removed when repairing/replacing parts in the steering comumn,Earlier models are 9/16" and Later models are Metric M14
