Posting from rec.crafts.metalworking as always.
2611) Look like they are designed to grip round objects (rods), and
plug into tubing -- so they may be for adding rods to scaffolding
or the like. The wooden handles allow one to pivot whatever is
gripped around the center of the plug.
Given that they are of two different sizes, and are perhaps
intended to work together, one possibility is for gripping
a rifle barrel near the action and near the muzzle for
repeatable test firing. In that case, the handles are for
lifting it free of the fixture.
2612) At first glance, it reminds me of a vernier caliper, but
it has no graduations on the bar.
So -- it is a transfer gauge -- set to a stack of gauge blocks
or some other standard, and then used to compare them to the
size of a workpiece.
2613) Designed to wrap around something and compress it. Given
some other items which have appeared here, I suspect that it
might be for holding a tire in place on the rim while air is
pumped in to seat the bead.
2614) Looks to me like a hand launcher for clay pigeons.
I had to save it and adjust the gamma to see the details, it was
a rather dark image.
2615) I'm going to assume that the flat top rotates around the
central hub. And if that is true, I expect that it was intended
for a yarn (or perhaps the cord used to make the cover under it)
is stored by wrapping in a figure 8 pattern around all the
knobs, to be payed out to the person crocheting or knitting or
2616) Perhaps a tenderizer, perhaps a tool for driving caulking into
something like a boat's hull, except the ribs are too close
together for that. The bottom of the grooves are rounded nicely
at the ends, so it could be for running multiple lines (ropes)
in parallel -- perhaps when threading the line through a
multi-sheave pulley block pair.
It could also be used to hammer lines or canvas to soften them
or drive them into joints as caulking.
Now to post this and then see what others have suggested.
