hi, greetings from germany
this week only one silly guess
1255 high-force screw anchor
all others ... no idea. no silly idea, no usefull idea. sorry.
oops, got some more... but only silly ones.
1252 for bending wires?
1251 for bending sheet metal?
Maybe they should have used ones like those instead of epoxied anchor
bolts to hold up the concrete ceiling panels in Boston's "Big Dig".
1254: Anti-kickers; restrain the hind legs of cows while they're
being milked. The hooks slip over the cow's Achilles' tendons from
the rear and the chain goes in front of the legs. The end of the
chain with the ring is pulled through its hook to pull the legs
together. That hook has a slot to hold the chain adjustment.
Which reminds me about a promiscuious young lady who drank too much a a
company country picnic and passed out lying on her back in a field.
She woke up just as a cow was steping over her, looked up and said, "One
at a time boys!"
Correct and they aren't necessarily for kicking. They also keep the
cow from dancing when they are tickelish and keep them from putting
their foot in the milk bucket!
Been there, done that, got the scars to prove it.
#1251 "Donkey's Ear" (really!) clamp for planing mitres
#1252 Counter for some card game (Bezique?) Sorry, I recognise it,
but I've never played it. Some of these are ivory or silver and very
#1253 Homemade one-off device (it's made of plywood) for stretching
two parallel wire apart. Maybe to spread them so as to install some
sort of spacer or insulator?
#1252 Rawlbolt (if it were a UK brand) or "shield anchor". It's an
old sortt of high-strength expanding wall anchor. Their main use is
for fracturing bricks in half, without needing to remove the brick
from the wall first. Leave them to use in concrete!
As usual, posting from rec.crafts.metalworking.
1251) Hmm ... a clamp designed to hold close where you want
to make a cut at an angle. Probably for cuts at an angle.
1252) Is that *all* wood? It looks as though it has inserts
made of metal or perhaps graphite. A shot or two from
other angles would help, too.
The only thing that I can think of is that it is for programming
something by the presence or absence of projections. (Perhaps
it is a key for a strange lock.
1253) Looks like a tool for tensioning wires in some kind of
assembly. It looks as though the wire passes through the hollow
bolts as guides and then passes through the pulley.
1254) This looks like an expanding insert for putting a stud into
a hole drilled in concrete.
1255) No guess other than that the projection on the side of the
angled joining piece serves as a large screwdriver.
Now to see what others have guessed.

1253: an alignment tool for keeping that wood stick parallel?
The rollers are arranged to make a two-cable-crossover
so the assembly is free to slide in the jackscrew
direction while holding the wood stick in a fixed orientation.
The jackscrew acts to adjust the cable spacing.
Two adjustable stops set the minimum cable spacing.
