2005: Security type top pins, used by locksmiths (I are one, locksmith
that is.) These are sometimes called "mushroom pins" or "drivers".
2006 no clue
2007 no clue. If it really is a machine gun magazine, it may need to
be registered with BATF so they can confiscate it later.
2008 looks like a really rich person's doll house
2009, my impression is that it's used for wool carding.
2010 Bored person's marble game.
Stretching is not the same as carding, primitive or not. Take a look at some
carders. 2009 has too few teeth, too far apart. Carding is an essential step
in the preparation of wool for use. The only time I ever heard the term
stretching used with wool was with respect to stretching a garment that had
shrunk. Any stretching in the preparation stage is done using a drop
This is off the top of my head based on two wives hand prep, spinning and
knitting of wool.
I changed my answer for this tool to read:
"This was marked 'primitive wool stretcher', but it might actually be an
apple picker that has had its long handle cut off."
If it was an apple picker it also would have had a bag hanging under the
metal part to catch the apples.
Here's a quahog rake. Like a groundhog rake, it has its hoop in a plane
perpendicular to the tines.
The hoop of the mystery tool is different. It doesn't look good for
raking, but if you inverted it, laced a bag to it, and reached for fruit
higher than your arm, the shape of the hoop would help catch fruit
better than a quahog rake or a groundhog rake.
