1680 - Target sled. It gets towed behind a ship for gunnery practice.
That one belongs to the 178th training squadron out of Springfield OH.

1675) Looks like a kerosene (or perhaps an acetylene (carbide)) fired
lamp for a really old vehicle and I *think* based on the red
jewel on the right) that it might be a lamp for mounting on a
ship facing to the rear so the red marks the port (left) side.
If so, there will be a green jewel in the other side to mark the
starboard (right) side.
1676) A weird torque measuring wrench -- for tightening something
with slots instead of flats.
1677) A wrench for reaching down (perhaps into a hole in the ground
giving access to a water shutoff valve. It appears to be
designed to fit multiple sizes with a single wrench.
1678) Hmm ... it looks like an incomplete nose-hair trimmer for a
troll or other giant being. :-) There should be a rotating
slotted cylinder inside what is shown to use as a cutter blade.
Really -- no real clue as to what it is for, so I describe what
it reminds me of. :-)
1679) A hammer which also acts as a pin spanner wrench. The two
pins fit into holes of the same spacing, and the hammer handle
turns the whatever.
1680) Looks like a towed target drone -- used for anti-aircraft
practice towed behind a manned aircraft on a *long* cable.
There seem to be some hits mostly on the upper wing (from the
current orientation, which appears to be upside down.
Now to see what others have guessed.

1675 - Appears to be a specialized lamp of some sort. Maybe it's an
early magic lantern projector or some theatrical effect.
1676 - Torque spanner wrench, for tightening nuts or whatever with a
notch in the side rather than the more common multiple flats. From the
size, perhaps this was used specifically in the adjustment of some
optical instrument (microscope lens or eyepiece, perhaps--too small for
most camera lenses).
1677 - Wrench for water or gas mains, presumably so shaped because the
corresponding valves sometimes get corroded and generally worn or
1678 - This appears to be some manner of specialized reamer, maybe for
making countersink holes in metal plates for large screws or rivets?
1679 - Hammer with two prongs. Why one might want a hammer with two
prongs and what one would do with one if one had it, I haven't the
1680 - Target for antiaircraft fire practice, towed with a long cable?
Now to read other guesses.
