I think this is probably correct, someone had brought this to a tool collector's meeting and a couple people had guessed it was a money pusher but I haven't been able to prove it. Casinos use a money paddle but they're not made of metal, you might be right about this one being used for a safe.

2334 is a 'jumping jack' tamper.

Tamper is correct, foot crusher would be another good name for it.

2334 is a petrol or diesel powered tamper. once they are started bouncing by hand, they take in a charge of fuel and air on the lifting stroke and compress it on the down stroke. At bottom it is ignited and lifts itself back up to take another stroke. If you operate one of these all day you will be exhausted at the end of it.

It isn't a controller, this device is missing a magnifying lens that would fit over the large square hole.

Just a guess:
2331 This may be an electric eye. Perhaps it is a part of an alarm or door opener. The cylinder contains a lamp and the square hole contains the light sensitive receiver (or vice versa). The missing lens would either focus or collimate the light. When used, the light from the lamp would reflect off of a mirror (e.g., on the other side of a doorway) and shine on the receiver. When the beam was broken, the electric eye would trigger (sound an alarm, open a door, etc.).

Then it must be a Scan-O-Matic Coin Viewer .

    In that case -- a slide viewer (for 35mm or perhaps 2-1/4" square slides).
    Enjoy,         DoN.

2329 - Looks like a boring machine used to make the holes for wood headstocks for livestock. The left one roughs out the hole and the right one cleans out the corners so the vertical board will swing freely.
2330 - DVD rental machine carousel
2331 -
2332 - Looks to be the right size to push money through a slot in a safe or tellers counter.
2333 - The top one looks like a spool guide for a hand sewing awl.
2334 - gas powered tamping hammer. Basically a single cylinder engine with a sliding piston instead of a crankshaft.

    Posting from Rec.crafts.metalworking as always.
    An intersting set this time around.
2329)    Hmm ... two seemingly unrelated tools, other than that they     both clamp onto the edge of a board of a wide range of     thicknesses.
    The one to the left is for drilling a hole parallel the sides     but at some setable angle to the vertical into the wood. Perhaps     for the sockets for uprights on a stair rail so the uprights are     truly upright.
    The one to the right looks as though it can be used to move the     one to the left a fixed distance, such as to space the holes for     the uprights.
    But -- it also may be driving two chisels to make a mortise for     a lock set in a door -- and the first would do the drilling to     make start on this.
    The grey painted metal behind appears to be part of the support     of the table and not really a joining part of the other two, so     I will discount it.
2330)    Part of a "library" for something. Calculating the height of     the individual sections based on the overall height, this may be     for selecting CDs or DVDs under computer control. Or it may be     for some kind of slide projector.
    More detail of the items sliding into the radial slots would     help.
    By "library" I mean like a tape library for backing up computer     systems, where the computer can ask for a specific tape to be     put into the drive, prior to making the backup or restoring from     it.
    These don't look like tapes, and a bit too rigid for the 5-1/4"     floppies of earlier days.
2331)    Maybe an ultrasonic cleaner? (Though I would expect a stainless     steel tank for that.
2332)    Two possibilities come to mind.
    1)    A wedge to drive into the handle of an axe (probably         a double-bitted axe) to keep the head from working loose         and flying to endanger someone nearby.
    2)    A hull model intended to mount flush to a surface for         studying water flow around it.
2333)    Can openers?
    Grippers for Mason Jar lids?
2334)    A gasoline powered fencepost driver?
    It almost looks like a gasoline powered pogo stick which I once     saw, except that I don't see foot rests, just a hand grip, and a     socket for a single side lever. (Or is that an exhaust port?)
    It also could be a dirt tamper, again gasoline powered.
    I guess that to start it, you switch on the ignition, lift it     and drop it, after which it runs until you hti the lever     sticking out from the gray-painted guard.
    Now to send this and see what others have suggested.
    Enjoy,         DoN.

You're right about them being used with jar lids but they aren't grippers or openers.
