What is it? (Amateur Version POST08)

Here is the eighth post in the series. As usual, I will try to answer quest ions about their composition, size and how they can move. Pictures are prov ide via dropbox. L. Flynn
POST08_TOOL30 This is a multi-use metal tool. It is approximately 9 inches long. It has t wo prongs on the jaws, one a little longer than the other and curved toward it. the other side of one of the jaws is a flat round face.The handles are designed to fit together with a tapered edge on one moving past a flat pla ce on the other at one point, a semicircle on one closing against the other at another point, and a projection on one moving into a circular depressio n on the other at a third point. https://www.dropbox.com/sc/czj50hie2iirf0q/AADV3sWrVeo6Yh-uOJ3rT-x4a
POST08_TOOL31 This metal tool is approximately 6 inches long. It has a serrated metal whe el at the end that spins fairly freely. It can be turned by using a turn-ke y like handle. There is an S-shaped component that can act as a cover for h alf of the wheel or to force something against it. One end of the S-shaped piece has a circular tab the fits nicely where ones thumb is place opposite ones index finger when holding the handle to apply pressure. https://www.dropbox.com/sc/xt85tge0vjztj91/AABBbe2Z6t31AHeapRXVpfADa
POST08_TOOL32 This is a metal and plastic tool approximately 8 inches long with no moving parts. The plastic part is hard. The business end is tapered to a rounded edge. https://www.dropbox.com/sc/61agk21bwpxkzfk/AABn0OyPGEx6pq_sRTSFB9k5a

Here is a combined set of post in the series. As usual, I will try to answe r questions about their composition, size and how they can move. Pictures a re provide via dropbox.
POST10_TOOL37 This metal and plastic tool is a little over five inches long. A curved met al shaft with a four-point-star-shaped cross-section extends from the end o f one arm toward the other one. The four points of the star extend out at t he end to create a concave bowl approximately 1/16 of an inch deep. The oth er arm ends in a circular opening and has a plastic piece attached to it. I t has a simple expansion spring with fairly weak resistance that keeps it i n its fully open position. There is approximately one inch of clearance bet ween the shaft and the circular hole in the open position. The plastic piec e stops the closing when the four-pronged metal shaft is just beyond the ci rcular hole in the opposing arm. https://www.dropbox.com/s/t1v92do6nwfw84k/POST10_TOOL37_PICALL.JPG?dl=0
POST10_TOOL38 This metal tool has three arms that can be rotated independently. One ends in a flat metal circle at a right angle to the arm. The second is a straigh t metal rod ending in a point. The third ends in a small spoon-shaped featu re. https://www.dropbox.com/s/1n089g3mxjdjig1/POST10_TOOL38_PICALL.JPG?dl=0
POST10_TOOL39 This metal tool has four pivot points. It is eight and one half inches long in its extended position but only three and one half inches long in its co mpressed postion. Correspondingly it is three inches wide when extended but six inches wide when compressed. Two circular arcs at one end meet when it is fully extended. There are two small tabs at the other end with a trade name on them. https://www.dropbox.com/s/kw75r487tz4ofqh/POST10_TOOL39_PICALL.JPG?dl=0
POST10_TOOL40 This metal tool is missing its three foot wooden shaft. It is a little unde r eight inches long and has five barbed prongs. https://www.dropbox.com/s/0c5hgqu934uz9n2/POST10_TOOL40_PICALL.JPG?dl=0
POST11_TOOL41 This plastic and metal tool is approximately five and one half inches wide. There is a plastic (possible bakelite) handle which can be removed and sto red inside the metal compartment. One side of the metal compartment is hing ed and can be opened or closed. The other side has an opening with a revolv ing metal shaft with plastic bristles set in it. It appears to be missing s ome of the bristles. Plastic wheels on either end of the shaft extend outsi de the metal compartment. There are metal walls on either side of the brist led shaft extending half way up. https://www.dropbox.com/s/8r85qtig6jzzci5/POST11_TOOL41_PICALL.JPG?dl=0
POST11_TOOL42 This aluminum tool is nine inches long. An expansion spring returns it to i ts open position. Two ridged, oval jaws meet early flushly. One of the jaws extends across and beyond the other jaw on one side. https://www.dropbox.com/s/xeul65ws8vz6ggm/POST11_TOOL42_PICALL.JPG?dl=0
POST11_TOOL43 This metal tool is eleven inches long. It ends in an elongated 1/2 inch by 1/4 inch loop positioned at a slight angle to the shaft. The side of the lo op is a narrow metal wall with a dull "bottom" and a narrow "top". The hand le has two indentations on opposite sites the line up confortably with the thumb and index finger when the tool is held out. There are three regularly space notches on the shaft near the handle. There is a "2" imprinted on t he shaft. https://www.dropbox.com/s/bmpa2xqalldjujn/POST11_TOOL43_PICALL.JPG?dl=0
POST11_TOOL44 This metal tool is a metal rod eleven inches long with attachments at eithe r end. At one end there is a five inch long metal rod with crimped ends tha t passes perpendicularly through a hole in the shaft. This smaller rod can move freely rotating or back and forth until it reaches the ends. The other end of the long main rod is widened and has metal ridges on it. It also ha s an attachement. This attachment is a C-shaped piece of metal, which can p ivot in the plane of the C, mounted on a small shaft passing through the la rger one. The C is pulled toward the main shaft by a weak spring. The small shaft is held in place on one side by the a broadened cross-section and on the other by a fairly rigid pin. This pin fits into a slot set in and para llel to the axis of the main rod but the small shaft can be rotated with a small amount of force. The two pin postions of the small shaft place the C- shaped piece's motion perpendicular to the main rod's axis. https://www.dropbox.com/s/uzk6mnhg81jqnji/POST11_TOOL44_PICALL.JPG?dl=0
POST12_TOOL45 This four-inch long metal and plastic tool is in the pliers family. The han dles are coated in a red rubbery plastic. The closed postion creates a near ly circular opening a little less that 1/4 inch in diameter. https://www.dropbox.com/s/jdgc2cde80omsgm/POST12_TOOL45_PICALL.JPG?dl=0
POST12_TOOL46 This tool is in the metal scissors/cutters family but who uses them. The bl ades are 1/4 inch deep and have two types of metal in them. One for the cut ting edges and another for the deeper part. The deeper parts have a small g ap between them when the cutting edges have been completely engaged. https://www.dropbox.com/s/nc0yn0lrxbu0adc/POST12_TOOL46_PICALL.JPG?dl=0
POST12_TOOL47 This six-inch long metal tool has a complicated pair of jaws. One jaw exten ds to either side and has recesses and bent tabs. The other side has a shar p tooth that moves with the lever action. https://www.dropbox.com/s/xii9yoagjbhbno1/POST12_TOOL47_PICALL.JPG?dl=0
POST12_ITEM48 These metal objects are 3 inches by 2 inches by 3/4 inches. They are not ac tually tools. Each has over two hundred sharp spines. https://www.dropbox.com/s/6jocf165aa3gqnc/POST12_TOOL48_PICALL.JPG?dl=0
POST13_ITEM49 This plastic and metal tool is almost 9 inches long. It has an expansion sp ring which keeps it in the closed position. One of the jaws is much shorter than the other one and fits inside it. The other is approximately two inch es longer and ends in a one-inch long serrated region. https://www.dropbox.com/sc/ep08vnq6oelcvau/AACAjowxHzfIS5-33vdQ6lLua
POST13_ITEM50 This five-inch metal tool is in the pliers family. It opens and closes free ly. The jaws are short cylinders with indentations on the facing sides near the end. https://www.dropbox.com/sc/drjizgkae4r192z/AADmqNuoOFTY3N-l2TSPnNs0a
POST13_ITEM51 This seven inch long metal and plastic tool is in the hammer family. The he ad has a hexagonal cross section. The other end flattens and comes to a poi nt but has a raised ridge running down the middle of side toward the handle https://www.dropbox.com/sc/o6nde3fhkqyzyj9/AAA6ZSwg-gmL0xKCDuDFP_RXa
POST13_ITEM52 These pictures show two knives. The questions are who uses each one and for what purpose. One is a seven inch long metal knife and is a very solid obj ect. The previous owner could not provide any information on its history. I t does not appear to have been kept well but one edge is still sharp; the o ther side is dull. The other knife is 3 1/2 inches long and is mainly metal but has small decorative stones in the handle it comes to a sharp point wi th sharpened edges.
