1927 - Looks like a mortising jig
1928 - Normally does two things. It provides a decorative effect and it's main purpose is to secure a beam/cable or other object on the interior of the wall to act as a support for either the wall or the item in question. Acts like a fender washer and spreads the load over a wide area.
1929 -
1930 - Which items? The calf hutches, the power poles, the trees or the fencing?
1931 - 12 pound bar shot. For a cannon.

1927 - I think this is some sort of combination saw jointer, gauge, setting tool. Similar to:

Did some searching, couldn't find an exact patent match for it...

Correct, it's a combination saw set and raker gauge (or saw jointer).

    Posting from Rec.crafts.metalworking as always.
1927)    Kind of difficult to make out details. It is a bit dark     and unless I save the images and process them to boost the     gamma I will have difficulties.
    However -- based on what I *can* see, how about the possibility     that it is a grooving plane for making tongue and groove board     edges?
1928)    Reinforcing plate used on old brick buildings. There is a steel     rod going through the building with one of these on each end     just outside the walls. It spreads the force of the rods out so     the bricks don't crumble, and allows the rod to keep the bricks     from bowing out and collapsing. These are quite common on the     brick buildings in Old Town Alexandria (Virginia).
1929)    A cheese slicer, perhaps?
1930)    I did save this image, and have discovered that it is too heavily     jpeged to allow any kind of detail on the objects.
    As a guess, they might be beehives?
1931)    Perhaps a "bucking bar" held against a relatively thin     workpiece to provide the necessary resistance when setting     rivets. It looks rather rough on this end for that, and looks     like wrought iron, so perhaps another function.
    Perhaps an anchor for a rowboat? There the finish would not     matter.
1932)    For sliding around blocks of ice? Looks as though it would     produce a nice grip in one direction, at least.
    It could also be used for cutting a groove in such a block, to     make it break where desired.
    Now to see what others have suggested.
    Enjoy,         DoN.
