1945 - Handy target?
1946 - Very well used kneading bench?
1947 - Something to do with an overhead projector?
1949 - You didn't have the complete set available? Anyway it's a taper
cutter for starting the process of cutting a tenon on the end of a piece
of wood. This tool shapes the end so the cutter can start in the center
and cut true.
1950 - Grass Sickles, Also used for cutting just about anything else
where a hand sickle can be used. I use mine to cut the weeds on the back
1945. It looks like a larger version of the fruit fly trap in my orange
tree. It catches those pesky flying squirrels (or moths). :-) If not a
trap, perhaps it is a bat or bird habitat ("To the Bat-Tent Robin!").
1946. A butcher table that slopes to allow the easy collection of blood and
1947. I need one of these. It is a surrender flag for the United States
Lost Hope Society (U.S.L.H.S.).
1948. Oil lamp? My guess is that the container on the right is filled with
oil. The oil flows through the horizontal tube to the nozzle on the left.
The oil burns on the tip of the nozzle.
1949. Attaches to a brace. Used to make conical points on wooden
cylinders. I think I saw one used on the "The Woodwright Shop".
1950. Mom and Pop-sickles. :-)
O.K. Posting from rec.crafts.metalworking as always:
1945) looks like some form of kite to me. Interesting shape.
1946) Some form of butcher's table? The curvature of the top would
help keep things from sliding off at least.
1947) At a guess -- it was for cleaning the Fresnell lenses (and
perhaps reflectors as well) in a lighthouse.
1948) Interesting. It sort of looks like something for generating
and burning acetylene for lighting or cooking.
1949) This is mounted in a drill brace (of Brace & Bit fame) and used
for forming a conical point on wood. Exactly *why* I don't
know, however. :-)
1950) sickles -- for harvesting (by hand) wheat or something similar.
Or -- one half of what you need to make two copies of the Soviet
flag emblem. :-)
Now to see what others have suggested.

When I first saw it I thought someone had lost a box kite, until I found two
similar ones a few miles down the road.
They've all been answered correctly this week, although I don't think anyone
got the specific type of lamp for number 1948.
