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

1927 - I think this is some sort of combination saw jointer, gauge,

Posting from Rec.crafts.metalworking as always.
1927) Kind of difficult to make out details. It is a bit dark

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?

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
