930 seems to be a sieve of some kind. Maybe for a water slurry and it
retains the solid material in the scoops and lets the water run out. Gold
932 looks like it might be a graduated medicine bottle. Each mark is a
single dose of cough medicine or whatever.
The internet. It's not a big truck.
It's a series of tubes.
Not a cut away of a nuclear war head huh? LOL.
Actually having worked in a tire store when I was a kid in school I can
relate to the device as many customers were pretty concerned that every drop
of new oil made it into the engine when we changed the oil on a car.
O.K. Posting from rec.crafts.metalworking as usual.
927) A tool for winding springs with the aid of a lathe.
I used to see these advertised in the back of Mechanix
Illustrated and similar magazines, long before I had a lahte
with which to use one.
I've never seen a proper set of instructions, so I can only
guess how it is to be used. I *think* that the wire is trapped
between the two bronze parts to give it some drag, and the 'V'
shaped areas (rotated to correspond) would be pressed against
the side of the mandrel on which the spring is to be wound.
928) At a guess, this is for clamping onto a guy wire where it
passes an anchor point on the object being supported. I find it
interesting that the U-bolts are actually J-bolts -- no threaded
extension visible on those. Anyway, the wire passes through the
curved channel, and is clamped via the J-bolts and the piece of
forged steel which is captive under them. The pin with the
split pin captivating it feeds through a hole on a plate bolted
to the supported object.
929) An interesting form of dividers.
930) I think that it is for sorting seeds or grain to size. The
grain to be sorted is poured in at the top, the whole thing is
shaken, and smaller seeds pass through the hole at the peak of
each to the next sorting level, so when it is complete, the
upper bin has the largest grain, and each one below has a size
smaller, with the smallest coming out the hole at the bottom.
931) A three-towel hanger?
932) A bottle for dispensing a medication of some liquid form. It
must be protected from actinic light, hence the brown bottle,
and the spaced ridges on the corners are for measuring the dose.
At a guess, each ridge corresponds to a tablespoon of the
medication. Perhaps a cough syrup, or some other medication.
Now to see what others have guessed.

928 is an aluminum suspension clamp for a high voltage (probably >= 230kV).
It connects to the bottom of a suspension insulator (usually attached to a
tangent tower) and holds the conductor in place. When I was a practicing
engineer, my company owned an aluminum foundry in Pelham, AL that made all
sorts of hardware for the electric utility industry.
931 does a similar job, except that it is used for distribution lines
(15-35kV) and holds all 3 phases. We made a similar product from a
composite material. The ones we made held the conductors in place using an
