O.K. Posting from rec.crafts.metalworking as always.
1363) Some kind of folding carrier for something? I'd be interested
in seeing it in its folded state too, to see how small it gets.
1364) Looks like a tool for bending a wire at a specific radius.
About the right size for bending the leads on a carbon
composition resistor prior to mounting it on a printed circuit
board -- except that those usually bend both ends at the same
time, and are not as old as this appears to be. Plastic is
usually sufficient for this task, not forged or cast metal.
1365) Gathering hay as it is sheared?
1366) No real clue (nor even a guess) on this one.
1367) A grapple which is dropped with the fingers pointing out
in a radial pattern, and either when it hits in the center or
when the rope pulls on it, the fingers all snap down to grasp
whatever it was tossed onto.
1368) Looks like a frame for bending the sides of a dulcimer or
similar musical instrument.
Now to see what others have guessed.

From where can I hear this word?
One (unconfirmed) study, and one magazine article written by a science
writer who can't spell 'metastasizing' - I'm not normally one to pick on
people's spelling, but (a) people who are paid for writing ought to be
able to do it properly!, and (b) the fact that he or she is unable to
spell the word suggests unfamiliarity with it, which further suggests that
he or she doesn't know spit about cancer.
There are lots and lots of reasons not to use cell phones. We don't need
the excuse that they're carcinogenic! (Whether they are truly carcinogenic
or not is something that I simply don't know - but the above articles fail
to convince me in all kinds of ways.)
