1435 Guess: The hammer is used to bang the point holding tool into
something and pry it out, so something must have a consistency like soft
wood. There are enough wires to make a 4-point resistance measurement
(though pairs of points seem to be tied together). I'll guess the set is
used to measure moisture content of wood by measuring the resistivity.
1436 Shop hoist. No idea what specific kind of shop or what it usually is
used to lift. Since the load must be positioned under it, and the dual rope
seems to be designed to limit motion in one direction, I'll guess it is used
to lift wagons to fix axles or wheels.
1437 Guess: Tool for maintenance of revolver. 1860's Non-bored-through
Colt or Remington revolver. The worm-pair would be used to remove a ball
from a cylinder if it misfired. The pick for cleaning priming hole.
1440 Someone has already identified a trigger lock.
1435: moisture meter for wood
1437: multitool for cap-and-ball firearms. The square wrench is for
removing the nipple that holds the cap, the worm can be reversed to pull
out stuck bullets, and the horizontal piece has a square end to fit into
the square socket for extending the length.
1439: "Open it" tool, primarily for plastic clam-shell packages. The
clippers are used for cutting around the periphery of the package, the
retractable blade for cutting tape and around smaller areas, the
screwdrivers mainly for opening battery compartments. I love mine!
1440: Trigger lock for firearms.
There is actually evidence that shows that trigger locks don't work and
don't prevent the trigger from being actuated.
The right way to protect a gun is to use a suitable gun safe, a suitable
gun case (either a hard sided lockable suitcase/briefcase/etc or something
like a LifeJacket) or a cable/chamber lock (e.g. a lock that puts a dummy
bullet in the chamber and locks it in place preventing a real bullet from
Gentlemen; ABSOLUTELY nothing if perfect or even absolute, not even this
The purpose of the trigger locks is to make it EXTREMELY difficult for
my three grandsons to operate any of my rifles. Which by the way are
also kept in a locked gun case.
BTW: the Chinese didn't invent gun powder until a long time after
Confucius. And they didn't invent the gun until much later.
