This one would be very difficult to guess the purpose of the device, the photo at the link below has a strong hint for it:

HA! In college, I made something like that! Out of two glass jarr with cork plugs, some plastic tubing, and an aquarium pump.
We didn't use it for cigars though.

    O.K. A cigar smoker. I guess to test the burn rate with a known airflow through the cigar.
    Unless the exhaust is piped through a cage of lung cancer test animals.
    Enjoy,         DoN.

Yes, it was "intended to provide evidence of uniform burning and quality of production."

Fan (and bungs) look like they're set up to suck, not blow, so maybe it is filthy with tar but we just can't see it?

1960- Swung like a hammer, makes wooden (or cork or leather?) plugs, have to assume the double end is for storing the 2 sizes not being used.
1962- rolls barrells? But can't think why they wouldn't by hand...

1957 - leather punch for making belts. 1958 - Cattle feed door. Wind the handle on the top, door on bottom opens and feed pours out. Wind handle again to close.
1962 - Wine keg turner.

I think the chamfer on the outside edge indicates the circle removed is to be used, versus the hole in the material.

It's a cylindrical tube, which may indicate a hole cutter. Disk cutters are often conical, for strength and easy piece clearance. Both sorts often have the sharpening chamfer on the outside, just because it's easier to sharpen that way.

1957 is a fish gaffe, probably for salmon.
1960 looks like it's for making wood dowels.

Hi Rob,
The photo of 1961 that includes the cigar has the usual Photobucket issue. If you want me to continue letting you know about these tell me, otherwise I'll ignore them from now on.

If any of my photos ever get flagged as having a problem, please let me know, otherwise please ignore Norton's false warnings.
Thanks, Rob

    Posting from Rec.crafts.metalworking as always.
1957)    Nasty looking thing!
    At a guess -- it might be for hanging meat to be butchered, or     to help in skinning pelts from a critter's body.
1958)    No guess here. Too lightweight to be a lock gate in a canal.
1959)    You've worn your wedding ring for decades, and now find you     can't take it off -- or it has gotten squished onto your finger     and you *certainly* can't get it off.
    The hook goes under the ring (between it and your finger     wherever there is enough room to slip it there -- perhaps with     lube -- then you squeeze the handles and turn the crank to cut     through the ring so it can be spread open and removed from the     finger.
    Then -- depending on how attached you feel -- you might have     some extra gold put in the gap to make it larger and continue to     wear it.
1960)    A hammer combined with a punch on one end, and a double punch     on the other end, to make holes in something -- cardboard,     leather, gasket material -- whatever needs the holes of that     size and at that spacing for the double end.
    At first, I expected to see a projection on the single end to be     hit with a hammer after the double punch was properly     positioned, but not a second punch. Both sets of punches need     evening and re-sharpening.
    I don't know why the plug of wood in the single end -- unless     the purpose is to make small disks from the material instead of     holes, so a screwdriver could be put in behind the plug and used     to lever the plug to press out the discs. Otherwise, I would     simply let them build up until they spilled out the gap, as     apparently was done with the other (double) end.
1961)    At a guess -- this is a setup to measure airflow through a pipe     connected to the large vertical pipe (likely an exhaust pipe for     a wood stove or the like).
    You connect the pipe, put the weighted plugs in each cone, and     turn on the electric motor. The airflow is indicated by how     many of the plugs pop out -- not sure whether the small end or     the large end would pop out at the lower pressure.
    Probably intended to measure the increase in flow restriction as     you add more elbows and lengths of pipe.
1962)    For drawing together the staves of a barrel while the hoops are     fitted.
    Now to see what others have suggested.
    Enjoy,         DoN.
