1960- Swung like a hammer, makes wooden (or cork or leather?) plugs,
have to assume the double end is for storing the 2 sizes not being
1962- rolls barrells? But can't think why they wouldn't by hand...
1958 - One half of an OLD lock gate. Similar to the ones used on the
Erie Canal, Clintons Ditch and a few others.
1959 - Ring cutter. Used to remove bands from a persons finger. I carry
a newer one in my med bag.
1960 - It's an impact hole punch.
1962 - Keg clamp I think.
It's a cylindrical tube, which may indicate a hole cutter. Disk
cutters are often conical, for strength and easy piece clearance. Both
sorts often have the sharpening chamfer on the outside, just because
it's easier to sharpen that way.

1957) Nasty looking thing!
At a guess -- it might be for hanging meat to be butchered, or
to help in skinning pelts from a critter's body.
1958) No guess here. Too lightweight to be a lock gate in a canal.
1959) You've worn your wedding ring for decades, and now find you
can't take it off -- or it has gotten squished onto your finger
and you *certainly* can't get it off.
The hook goes under the ring (between it and your finger
wherever there is enough room to slip it there -- perhaps with
lube -- then you squeeze the handles and turn the crank to cut
through the ring so it can be spread open and removed from the
Then -- depending on how attached you feel -- you might have
some extra gold put in the gap to make it larger and continue to
1960) A hammer combined with a punch on one end, and a double punch
on the other end, to make holes in something -- cardboard,
leather, gasket material -- whatever needs the holes of that
size and at that spacing for the double end.
At first, I expected to see a projection on the single end to be
hit with a hammer after the double punch was properly
positioned, but not a second punch. Both sets of punches need
evening and re-sharpening.
I don't know why the plug of wood in the single end -- unless
the purpose is to make small disks from the material instead of
holes, so a screwdriver could be put in behind the plug and used
to lever the plug to press out the discs. Otherwise, I would
simply let them build up until they spilled out the gap, as
apparently was done with the other (double) end.
1961) At a guess -- this is a setup to measure airflow through a pipe
connected to the large vertical pipe (likely an exhaust pipe for
a wood stove or the like).
You connect the pipe, put the weighted plugs in each cone, and
turn on the electric motor. The airflow is indicated by how
many of the plugs pop out -- not sure whether the small end or
the large end would pop out at the lower pressure.
Probably intended to measure the increase in flow restriction as
you add more elbows and lengths of pipe.
1962) For drawing together the staves of a barrel while the hoops are
