It looks like the bottom one is for knurling, the top one looks like wood but have no idea what it is.

It is a general tool applicable to all makes models, American or foreign. Boats, trains, airplanes, lawn mowers, it don't care.

I'm saying it has something to do with exhaust or tubing, maybe a clamp of sorts and a tubing cutter?

It has nothing to do with any tubing or the exhaust system.

Big hint; between two of you guys, there lies the correct answer as to what it is. Figure that out and you'll know what they were used for.

Engine men ought to know what this is.

Used to knurl piston skirts? Just a guess the wood part holds the piston and the other piece does the work?

Bingo!
This is a HKS PISTON RESIZER TOOL. Clamp the piston in the wooden jaws then clamp both of them into a vice. Run the knurling tool up and down the piston skirt while tightening the tool adjuster and the piston is expanded to fit a worn cylinder. Add new rings and back into the wholes they go. Eliminate piston slap. This tool is a little different then other I've seen . Most tools work in a circular motion. This one goes up and down.

Go for it kelly!

That was a complete guess based on information others had compiled. Someone else throw something out there, I am at a loss for any good questions.

That's the well known , one of a kind. 1911 Reeves "OctoAuto".
It was a non-production vehicle that was in fact a modified 4 door Overland. Front wheel in the rear was the driver and all four wheels up front steered. The car was shown at the first Indy 500.
496 ask another question. You left the original image info at the bottom of your picture. Pretty easy to google.
