The two pieces of wood fit flush against each other, there is not any empty space between them like in a mold.

2219 looks like some kind of ballast. I've seen similar used to trim weight balance on pulling tractors.

2215: Something very much like a piton, maybe for anchoring to a log, or maybe a real piton! Who knows, I've never seen one. ;-D
2216: Number labels, obviously, and quite old, but no clue where they were used, which is very probably the goal for this one.
2217: Not a clue, although I like the Lasagna pasta mold idea. :-)
2218: Cable Ends. These fit into a clevis-like arrangement that's anchored, and they use a different kind of coupler at the other end to attach to the cable, conceptually kind of like a fish line leader. (except for the hammer, of course. ;-) )
2219: Obviously a deadweight, but the hole fascinates me - maybe a counterweight for a MONGO beam balance scale?
2220: C3PO's toenail clipper. ;-)
Cheers! Rich

    Posting from Rec.crafts.metalworking as always.
2215)    Looks like a device intended to be pushed into the mortar     (while still wet) between bricks to produce a point to hang     plants or to atttach blinds to brick house siding.
2216)    Year update tags for vehicular license plates. More recent     ones are adhesive stickers with peel-off warning features.
2217)    I've seen something a little like this which were molds for     the final shape when rolling cigars.
    In this case, you would rotate one 180 degrees relative to the     other so the grooves would line up.
2218)    Some of them look like decorative things carried in pagents,     but a couple appear to be tools.
2219)    Looks like a sliding counterweight for something or other,     perhaps a turnstile gate?
2220)    Sorry -- no ideas.
    Now to send this and see what others have suggested.
    Enjoy,         DoN.

2217 - Suppose you had a piece of fabric or plastic film thin enough to let the device close almost fully. Depending on how steep the slanted portions of the curves are, when it closed it would grip with much more friction than if the faces were flat.
A painter might bring a dozen of these gripping weights to hold a thin plastic dropcloth in place; it would be much better than using the homeowner's rare books for the purpose.
They might also hold mosquito netting in place.

Wonder if it might have been a form to crimp or pleat startched fabrics during a laundering or ironing process?

Could be, though I've seen a lot of those and they were all made from metal. The owner of it thought it might be a flax seed crusher but that was just his guess.
