Hose, correct. Rest of it, not so.

What could be worse than fighting a fire with cold, wet feet? This strap would allow a fireman to hang his hose on a ladder to dry in front of the fire!

2647: Appears to be a glass cutter. The square hole would be for mounting on a radius arm to cut circles.

Yes, that's what the square hole is for.

But it seems the carbide glass scoring wheel is missing from the tip - it almost fooled me.

    Posting from Rec.crafts.metalworking as always.
2647)    Tool for cutting glass. Hardened roller in the pointed     corner (likely missing in the one imaged here), ball to tap     along the line made by the roller to produce a better fracture,     and three different size notches for gripping the glass     (matching the thickness of the glass) and applying force to     break the glass when close to the edge.
    The square hole is likely to control the valve stem on a torch,     used perhaps to ease the breaking.
2648)    These appear to be for steadying round object (likely glass     bottles) so they will not roll apart. The top two are for going     between layers of bottles (of different sizes, given the     different spacing of the notches), while the bottom-most one     goes under the bottom layer of objects, or perhaps over the top     layer if they are enclosed in a crate.
2649)    For carrying (and hanging) a bundle of something like sticks, or     for lifting heavy cylinders such as perhaps rolls of metal for     machining in a machine shop.
2650)    Tools to perhaps form pills, or to detonate percussion caps.
    Not commercial, given the materials.
2651)    Looks like a curtain pull, except too large and heavy. Perhaps     for theatrical curtains?
2652)    The fipple for a very low pitched pipe (flute without holes to     select alternate notes)-- designed so it can be opened up and     cleaned out. Missing is the edge against which the air (or     steam) stream is directed -- likely a part of the main horn.
    At a guess -- it is for something like a foghorn, and the     cleaning is likely needed because of birds building their nests     in the horn.
    It looks like it is die cast of aluminum or zinc (or pot metal,     which is mostly zinc).
    Now to post and then see what other have suggested.
    Enjoy,         DoN.
