3071 is an adjustable hole cutter for a brace-and-bit type drill. That looks to have a much easier to use clamp than the one I had. As ever, several of the others look horribly familiar but I've no idea what they are.

Correct, these are used for cutting gaskets. The person who sent the photo would like to know why there is only one blade on this tool when typically gasket cutters have two blades as seen at the link below.

I disagree - I think it's one of these rather than a gasket cutter.

The seller had claimed it was for cutting gaskets but I think you are probably correct.

    No need for something running as slow as a brace-and-bit driven one -- and easier to adjust for size if you are making a single cutout at a time -- like to clear a piston/cylinder in a head gasket. (In a drill press, you would want two cutters at the same radius to minimize off-center weight vibration.)
    Now -- with two cutters, you have two choices:
1)    For a single hole -- either carefully adjust both cutters to     the same radius from the pivot point, or remove one of the     cutters. (If the latter was done with the one in the puzzle, it     might have been lost over the years.
2)    For making a ring gasket -- adjust one for the OD and the other     for the ID. Probably best done with them on opposited sides of     the pilot. Two cuts at the same time.
    Enjoy,         DoN.

Someone just sent me the photos at the link below, I don't plan on posting them on the site but maybe someone here can identify it. The owner said that it appears that the tip is broken.

Sounds like a good possibility. Thanks

I'd cap a 3" piece of pipe, solder the head of a 3" nail to the cap, and put a band of red reflective tape around the pipe.
I'd stick the nail into the ground. I could center a plumb bob over the top, and I could sight it from a distance.
The mystery device might have served a similar purpose. The long pin could be inserted into the ground without much resistance. The bullseye marks might have been to sight from shorter ranges. For longer ranges, it might have been rotated so that the solid marks would appear centered.

Not sure if this is right but I'll send it to the owner along with the rest of the guesses for it. I already sent him the ice pick theory and he thought the steel might not be strong enough for that, but maybe the tool was not well made.

A decorated awl for decorative work? Or simply a hairpin?

    Well ... the engraving in it looks like typical scrimshaw engraving. (especially the bands at the ends of the ivory). Not sure whether that is whale tooth ivory or elephant ivory, however.
    If the round dots are copper, then it is work of the Copper Eskimos. They tended to decorate their scrimshaw with embedded copper.
    If scrimshaw, it could be intended to be purely decorative, rather than functional.
    Enjoy,         DoN.

3068 Seems to be an electrical relay. Probably a reversing switch. Intended to be configured as double pole double throw. Perhaps for controlling a motor.

Yes, it's a DC relay.

stepper sort, but just a multi-pole double-throw type.
3069 is obviously a belt-hung 22-cal ammunition dispensor -- ostensibly for the breech-break guys. (I have one, Savage O/U 22/.410, my original 50's model)
