What is it? Set 405

2341. I'm guessing at a tool for fixing crimps onto the likes of webbing (military?). Possibly a cobblers tool, perhaps a saddlers. Finely made though, and it won't be coming apart or losing any bits. The opposing threads look very good.
2346. Pure guess, a plumbers tool for shaping /manipulating lead sheet/flashing or pipe. Probably a million miles off. I think the retaining ring is a red herring, this ring would probably not survive long in use and I can't realise how the ring may serve any useful purpose. Nicely made tool, perhaps too posh for a plumbers bag. Damnation, I have seen this before but cannot remember what it is. Another senior moment.
Just my tuppence worth. Nick.

The ring clamps the other two parts together and possibly holds a blade, the image below is a close-up of the under side of the pivoting piece, there are some marks that may have come from a scraper that was held there.

The owner said that he was surprised that the ring was still with the tool and not lost, but it does fit very tightly and does not come off easily.

2345 - Old pickle fork style tool. The other end is the striking face.
2346 - Scraper. Takes a blade between the two parts and has different shaped blades depending on what you're scraping.

That's it! The tool is for holding leather over a shoe mold when attaching the sole. Still don't know for sure what the last one is but the rest of the answers can be seen here:

    Posting from Rec.crafts.metalworking as always.
2341)    Some sort of clamp to hold perhaps wood together for     gluing or perhaps bolting/screwing together. Given the teeth,     it is certainly not intended to be used on furniture or other     exposed/decorative surfaces.
2342)    They look a bit large for the purpose, but it could be something     like "boiling chips" intended to be used in the bottom of a test     tube or beaker to provide nucleation sources so you don't wind     up with superheated water suddenly bursting into steam and     harming people nearby -- including the experimenter. (This     problem happens most with really clean surfaces, and distilled     or at least deionized water. (Can happen with water heated in a     *very* clean coffee cup in a microwave too. Nothing happens     until you put something into the water after it rises above     normal boiling temperature -- sprinkle in some sugar or salt, or     reach in with a spoon to stir it.)
2343)    These look like something to exchange stale air for fresh in     underground compartments. The second one, in particular, looks     designed to provide breathing air to someone perhaps     accidentally buried alive, given the coffin shown in the     drawing.
    Perhaps it also pops up a signal to indicate that "the stiff" is     not quite that stiff and would like out, please. :-)
2344)    These look vastly different in scale, (not provided), which     makes identification more difficult.
    The first almost looks like a magnet on the back of something     for mounting to a metal surface. (Another view might help.)
    The second looks a bit too small for the first guess of it being     a pie crimper. Perhaps it is intended to roll and mark a     surface.
    But other than the fact that both are photographs (and puzzle     entries), they seem to have nothing in common.
2345)    Hmm ... I think that this *could* be used for removing the     railroad spikes and clamp plates normally used to clamp rails to     wooden ties. Put the ends of the fork under the plate, holding     the handle in the left hand, and using the right hand to swing     another sledge hammer to drive it under the plate and around the     spike.
2346)    First -- a question: Is the oval ring steel or rubber?
    If steel, it could be used to lock the two parts together to     grip something -- perhaps akin to the pop tabs on beverage cans.     Or it could be to hold a tin can over a flame for rough cooking.
    Now to see what others have suggested.
    Enjoy,         DoN.

2341: The quality of the steel makes me think this is some sort of surgical tool, possibly for holding a large opening closed without stitches or holding two bone segments or two muscles together.

That is a smooth side and a tooth side clamp used in Taxidermy. Teeth are for making either a firm grip - but at the same time it makes threading holes.
Not a toy.
Should see the hand tool I have - pliers with wide bed of nail grippers.
