2380 And a very nicely made old strap wrench at that... Nowadays they are a polymer handle-stick and strap.
2377 Sure looks like the trigger mechanism of an M2 Browning .50 caliber machine gun.
2378 A gasoline burner/torch. I can't help with the specific application.

Yes, it's a trigger with spadegrips.

might be so, but i think the flat, ageled part in the upper right of the tool is to force it against a surface for leverage power. This seems not necessary for a oilfilterwrench.

Perhaps you have not removed many oil filters, many can be quite tight especially if the previous person that put one on did not put oil on the gasket. I have had to destroy some filters to remove them. Leverage is certainly your friend.

Strap wrench is correct though it's not for oil filters.

2381 looks like it would hold 2 gallons. It would serve as an ash bucket by a stove or fireplace.

No. 2377 might be a grip/handle with trigger for a .50 Browning Machinegun
No. 2381 is easy, its a rusty bucket *smile*

They're called "drip torches". We use them all the time down here for pasture burns.

Do firemen burn the pastures or do farmers start their own fires?

Like 'most everything on the farm/ranch, it's a part of the job. Generally is done cooperatively w/ neighbors w/ or w/o help of "custom" crews that travel the areas that have significant burn areas every spring, particularly out here in the Flint and Red Hill areas.
Farther west where there's much CRP (Conservation Reserve Program) grass that has replaced formerly tilled highly erodible (think wind, sandy, dirty-30's) ground in large areas, burning is one of the alternative maintenance practices. Several quarters (160A/quarter) or sections of one or several owners/landlords may be burned in a single burn. Begin w/ a disc'ed buffer around edges of some distance for a break then a backburn downwind and the main burn set upwind the other side.
Folks here have setups of a drip torch mounted on an old 4x4 or use 4-wheelers and head off across the burn target area at a heady clip trailing the fire behind.
It is required to file burn plans and coordinate w/ County Emergency Management organization whatever that is locally--generally there's a County Fire Department who's in charge.
It's a real challenge when one gets started on hot, dry, windy days by carelessness or accident Train hotboxes are a great source as well as windblown power line coming down or the tossed cigarette butt along the highway. One of worst around here last summer was a fool welding outside in windy weather w/o protection and set his yard going which got away into adjacent fields. Ended up w/ a 20-mile long by 5-7 mile stretch and several houses.

Have any of those grass fires been started by dry lightning?
Thanks, Rich

Correct, it's a drip torch for use by firemen.

Nope

This device is from the Civil War, you're right about it being a frame, it *is* missing something but not a net.
