What is it? (Amateur version Post #20)

Here is another post in my amateur “What is it?” tool threa d. As usual, I will try to answer questions about their composition, size a nd how they can move. Pictures are provided via Dropbox. L. Flynn
POST20_TOOL77. This iron tool is 2 feet long. One end has an open socket, s haped like an arrow with the point cut off. The socket is over ½ inch wide at its narrowest. The other end is bent to form a 6-inch-wide handle a t a right angle to the shaft. It ends in a point on one side. It was origin ally painted red. https://www.dropbox.com/s/y1mg1rolifklc85/POST20_TOOL77_ALL.jpg?dl=0
POST20_TOOL78. This metal tool is in the pliers family. It tightens with a ratchet action until the two jaws meet. In the closed position they form th ree openings: ¼ and 5/8 inch hexagonal ones and a circular one 3/16 in ches wide on one side and 1/16 inches wide on the other. The far end of one of the jaws has a 1/16-inch rise/tooth that fits snugly into an indentatio n on the other jaw. Additional pressure releases the ratchet action and ret urns the jaws to their open position. One handle is missing its blue rubber grip. I have hidden the manufacturer’s name and model number. https://www.dropbox.com/s/m62imnrvx34knlf/POST20_TOOL78_ALL.jpg?dl=0
POST20_TOOL79. This metal tool is in the hacksaw family. The blade can be t ightened or loosened/replaced by turning the handle. The end of the blade n ear the handle is held in place by a pin through it that fits into an angle d pair of grooves. It can only make a cut less than ½ inch deep. Why i s it so narrow, and for whose use is it designed? https://www.dropbox.com/s/wc9meiaqv03l7ni/POST20_TOOL79_ALL.jpg?dl=0
POST20_TOOL80. This wooden and metal tool is almost 6 inches long. The wood en handle is joined to a metal piece containing a freely-spinning spool of thick thread. The thread feeds thorough a hole and runs down the side of a removable needle and is threaded through its eye. The tip of the needle is bent at approximately 30° to the shaft. I have hidden the manufacturer ’s name and motto. https://www.dropbox.com/s/cipd0umr7j3pumz/POST20_TOOL80_ALL.jpg?dl=0

In the closed position they form three openings: ¼ and 5/8 inch hexagonal ones and a circular one 3/16 inches wide on one side and 1/16 inches wide on the other. The far end of o ne of the jaws has a 1/16-inch rise/tooth that fits snugly into an indentat ion on the other jaw. Additional pressure releases the ratchet action and r eturns the jaws to their open position. One handle is missing its blue rubb er grip. I have hidden the manufacturer’s name and model number.

ead.

A hydrant wrench, that mates to the pentagon-head drive spuds seen on a fire hydrant, OR mates to a rectangular-shape (some kind of cutoff valve, possibly for sprinkler systems).

A leatherwork awl, but the curved end makes it suitable for one-sided stitc hing such as assembling a baseball.
