Have your newsreader set up to automatically decode and you won't see them. It was a curse in the olden days when you had to save and decode with another piece of software and all people saw was gibberish code. Today we don't have to, so it should not be the same bother.

They are tools to inlet rifle barrels into gun stocks. Not antiques, and not rare. Just uncommon.

So, they work kind of like a handplane to create the groove the barrel fits into? That seems logical by the way the tools look.

Precisely. The cutters, scrapers actually, can be rotated around their axes to find sections that are still sharp. The different sizes are used to accommodate various barrel diameters, working with several of them gives the ability to inlet tapers.
