2661 is for holding golf tees. I never seem to use up all the tees in mine.

2659 telescope eyepiece with adapter barrel and what appears to be an adjustable iris and a filter holder.
2663... small belaying pin?
2664... hand sausage stuffer?

2659: It looks like it might be an attachment for a slide projector to project microscope slides. It could also be for classroom demonstrations of various optical effects like polarization, birefringence, and Newton's rings. Special slides would be placed in the holder and the lens re-projects them on the screen. This is all just an educated guess.
2662: A log/firewood carrier?

Good guess, it is indeed for projecting microscope slides.

    Posting from rec.crafts.metalworking as always.
2659)    A lens, with a stage either for projecting a transparency     mounted on the stage, or for accepting a color filter for     illuminating a scene (theatrical, or a photographic subject).
    One possibility is a lens for mounting in front of a projection     CRT -- one of three with different color phosphors for     projecting a color image. The holder could be for a filter to     tweak the image color balance.
2660)    It is difficult to be sure, but I think that the size of the     holes varies from disc to disc. It could be to limit flow rates,     or perhaps to adjust the mixing of one liquid through the     central hole, and another through the surrounding holes.
2661)    It is obvious that the holes are tapered with alternate ones     having the left end larger and the intermediate ones having the     right end larger.
    It could be for storing cutters of some small form and     protecting the cutting edges -- perhaps something like dental     burrs, but the chain and clip would not match with the sanitary     requirements of the dental cutters, unless they were being used     for a non medical purpose, as the lab I used to work for used     them.
2662)    Hmmm .... T-handle on the rope for pulling, a pair of jam     cleats, and a groove to allow the rope to follow a curve towards     the underside of the board.
    The black cable ties securing the two handles together are no of     the same period, so are there for display purposes.
    I would say that it is designed for gathering something (round     sticks, or the like) into a tight bundle and offering a handle     to help carrying them. At a guess, the bundle would range from     5" to 12" diameter. Much larger and the handle would have     insufficient clearance from the bundle.
2663)    Various styles of tent pegs -- for driving into the ground     to secure the bottom edge and the guy ropes for tents of perhaps     one to four man size at a guess.
2664)    If the inside end of the nozzle were appropriately threaded, it     could be the answer to the list of "impossible things" which     includes getting the toothpaste back into the tube.
    As it is -- perhaps it is designed for forcing glue or caulking     into a seam.
    Very nicely made, but certainly not modern.
    Now, time to post this and then see what others have suggested.
    Enjoy,         DoN.
