SPOILER for #1035 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
#1035 - This is a shot tower for making lead shot. Molten lead was dropped at the top and had time during free-fall to form a nice sphere before being quenched at the bottom.
This one is apparently at the old Peters Cartridge Factory in Kings Mills Ohio (hence the big "P").
Ciao, Chappy.

It's really a hose drying tower for a fire station. Look at the long shot and you can see the two engine bay doors at the bottom.

(no, im joking) 1036 no idea how this unit can be utilized. you can use it to get the navigational angle of house walls? (again joking)

1032 looks more like a model of an automatic pyrotechnic parachute release device for cargo drops. The load connects to the botton (left in the picture) and when pressure is released on ground contact a cartridge fired and releases the load. Jim Chandler

Is 1035 a shot tower? It doesn't look old enough but I remember seeing a picture of one that looked like that.

1031 Looks like a shotgun target/bird.
1032 ? Quick-release Remote-release Air operated thing to release or drop something heavy remotely. Like in the TV commercial where a crane lifts a car and then, when the stunt is ready, drops it.
1033 Flail Threshing tool.
1034 Caulking hammer(s).
1035 Shot tower. Drop molten metal from the top, by the time it has fallen to the bottom, it is hardened into small spheres. For many years there was a round, cone-topped shot tower visible from route-95 in Philadelphia.
1036 These look line mapping tools, used on a mapping table, similar to something posted here some time ago.

The flail and the clay pidgeon, I knew but are done to death.
1032 is a release mechanism, like the mythbusters use to drop cars, elevators, etc.

If 1031 turns out NOT to be a clay pigeon, my guess is that it's a wooden "gavel block" used to protect the bench top when the judge gets too excited.

A lot of people are calling 1031 a clay pidgeon, but I just can't see that.
In fact, it looks a lot like a weight or balance weight for a scale to me. The only reason I rule out clay pidgeon is due to the what looks like to me corrosion mark on the right side of it. Clay pidgeons are not shiny well finished items.
Really not sure, could be a clay pidgeon, but that mark on the right side looks like rust to me so I'm thinking its a stacking scale weight. The only reason I don't absolutely think so is because it doesn't have a slot or obvious way to hook it on a scale.
