    Posting from rec.crafts.metalworking as always:
2191)    Strange beastie. Since it seems to be attached to     a key ring, it might be part of a link to a belt hook for     something line a janitor's or night watchman's keys. The keys     will hold in place under normal conditions, but they can be     easily detached from the belt at need -- including what once     happened to a janitor at a school dorm. He was walking along     outside and saw a radiator hanging from one of the upstairs     windows. So, he went up there, put his key (still attached to     his belt) in the lock and turned -- finding it rather difficult     to turn. Then it turned, and he found himself sliding across     the room, dragged by the keys attached to his belt.
    What had happened was that the room was one of two with a shared     door between which could be unlocked from both sides to allow     passage between the rooms. This was during summer session, with     few students, so lots of empty rooms. Someone wanting to give     the current occupant of that room a hard time had:
    1)    Unbolted the radiator from the steam pipes (summer, so         no steam).
    2)    Tied the radiator to the doorknob by a steel cable.
    3)    Removed the door's hinge pins.
    4)    Left via the door to the other room.
    He expected his friend/victim to come along, turn the key, and     have the door vanish across the room -- not to have a janitor     with keys attached to his belt.
    The only reason that he was not pulled through the window and     down a few floors to the ground was that the door did not fit     through the window.
2192)    Looks as though it is a tool for drilling a hole in wood from a     single side and then extending the hole rather quickly by using     the rest of the tool as either a file or a saw depending on     which edge was applied. Way too coarse for most metals, though     it would work on lead or other soft metals I guess.
2193)    A black stone turned into a watch fob?
    Perhaps a container for something?
2194)    Looks like an industrial version of a dealer's "shoe" for some     card game -- Baccarat, perhaps?
    Anyway -- intended to deal one card (or whatever) face down from     the toe.
2195)    A demonstration of complex linkages perhaps?
2169)    Looks like a tool for popping out ball joint linkages or something     similar.
    Might also be used for installing a press fit of some sort in     the field -- certainly not in a factory, but perhaps in a     garage.
    Now to see what others suggest they are.
    Enjoy,         DoN.
