    Posting from rec.crafts.metalworking as always.
2737)    German "Potato Masher" grenade.
    <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Model_24_grenade
2738)    I don't know. It sort of looks like a holder for a scalpel     blade (surgical knife), or some kind of deburring tool.
2739)    First off -- it appears to be broken at the upper right-hand     corner of the photo.
    It looks sort of like a tool for boring a tapered hole into     something fairly soft.
    Is it magnetic? It sort of looks like either a hardened steel,     or obsidian -- though I'm not sure how the latter would be     shaped like that.
    It might be some kind of penetrator from a projectile.
2740)    A stool for sitting and working on something, and at a guess     from the shape of the holder part, I would think that it is     perhaps for detailed work on a horse's hoof -- still attached to     the horse.
2741)    My guess is that the combination of the parts makes a microtome     (a device for slicing very thin samples for preparation of     microscope slides).
    The black part is a metric micrometer head -- calibrated for     measuring and/or moving in divisions as small as 0.01mm     (0.000394").
    The object to be sampled is put into the brass cylinder and     it is poured full of wax. Once it is cooled, the wax and sample     is pushed out of the cylinder and impaled on the bed of spikes in     the other end of the micrometer.
    It is then adjusted to put the end of the cylinder just barely     projecting through the black disc, and sliced flush with the     disc using the blade (which looks like an old straight     "cutthroat" razor.
    Then the micrometer is used to advance it just far enough to     produce a slice of the desired thickness, and then another slice     is made, and transferred to the slide (and usually place under a     cover glass on the slide.
    The other part, which looks sort of like a letter 'C' with a     tail in the last photo is used to clamp it to the edge of a     workbench or table to allow safer control of the blade.
2742)    Looks like a tool for applying a stamping marking to paper.     I suspect that there is an inked ribbon going over the bottom     part, and some setable numbers -- perhaps advanced by the knob     on the bottom.
    Now to post and then see what others have suggested.
    Enjoy,         Don.
