Close, but no cigar. It's an engine stand.

Doug is correct on this being an engine stand. Typically an engine is pulled out with a hoist, aka cherry picker" and mounted on the engine stand in the same location that a transmission would be attached. Transmissions are typically removed from the bottom of the vehicle while it is in the air on a rack. A transmission jack is rolled under the vehicle and attached to the bottom of the transmission and then lowered and rolled to a work area.

1726 I assume lots of people will recognize a bracket to hold a plank on a ladder. Commonly used by painters. http://www.onestopshopcatalog.com/qc2420.html

1728 a noon cannon - somehow sun light was focussed on the touch hole and it fired a charge of back powder at noon.

1723 - a foot for a metal chair with tube legs. The three prongs go inside the tube. Or maybe a cane or something like that.
1724 - you put something in it and center it and then you can swivel it, so my first thought is surveying or a sextant but I just don't know.
1725 - engine or transmission stand.
1726 - Ladder bracket/shelf thing.
1727 - Reminds me of a core sampler for cheese but I think it's missing parts. Maybe a tip for a pole.
1728 - My friend says... "that's a coast guard rescue cannon! For shooting out rope and stuff!"

1725 Engine stand
1728 Bayonet sheath. Can't remember which bayonet--round spike, not very long. Used to be cheap enough to use as tent stakes. No. 4 Enfield? It's too short for the old Lebel cruciform bayonet unless it's been cut down.
1728 Cannon. Signal cannon? Line throwing cannon? 24" long---a "one pounder"?

This is correct, although it was marked "scabbard".

1726 looks to me like some brackets I had that would allow you to have an under the counter shelf that you could pull the pins out, it would swing out, and lock, giving you another work surface either at table level or just below.

Yes! I'd be happy to take a look at what you have and possibly include it on the web site.

1724 - Truing rack. Used to true wire spoked wheels. That one looks like it's for older auto rims.
1725 - Engine stand. The one I have is yellow with larger wheels.
1726 - Ladder jack. Used with 2 GOOD ladders so you can make a scaffold. missing the locking pins and straps on the upper lock. I prefer the steel version myself.
1727 -
1728 - Looks like either a salute cannon or a model of a fixed gun.

1723: Looks almost, but not quite, like an upholstery anchor 1724: Could be a truing stand, but I'm guessing not 1725: Engine stand, 750 lb capacity. 1726: Base for an extension ladder. Possibly vehicle-mounted. 1727: Lightning rod top 1726: Cannon, probably a blank-firing scale replica
