2665: What the U shaped prongs bolt to appears to be a vehicle flywheel. The
central bolt holes and dowels are clearly similar to crankshaft end fittings
and I think I can see starter motor ring gear teeth at the left of the
picture. However other than that I'm stumped. All I can think is it's
designed to take up backlash between clutch and engine as some sort of
cushioning device rather like modern dual mass flywheels.
2668: This would join two separate wires or cables. Maybe a fence tensioner
or cable extender of some sort.
2670: Some kind of sump plug spanner cum penknive. Maybe vehicle oil pan
sumps or given the knife a firefighter's tool if any water valves are
operated by square plugs of that type.
2655 If I guesss that the V/U shaped piece is a magnet, then the
assembly is the rotor of a magneto-like generator, making 16 pulses per
revolution. If they are positioned with like poles together, then it
makes alternating polarity pulses. If they are positioned with unlike
poles together (and non-magnetic clamps), then it makes dipolar pulses
of short duration, like a magneto.

I was told it came from a magneto.
I think my grandfather said it was from a Model A Ford--but that was a
very long time ago and the only thing I'm sure about now is that it was
a good, strong magnet in 1962.
2670 might be a gauge to see why a square peg won't fit a square hole.
For example, I've read that in machine tools, shafts from 1-7/16" to
1-3/4" use 3/8" keys. Woodworkers use square 3/8" dowels.
First, the troubleshooter sees if the peg will fit through the hole in
his knife. Then he sticks the tapered rod in the hole to see how far it
2665 - A magnet. Part of an electric motor/dynamo.
2666 - A Yeti/Mammoth comb.
2667 - A bicycle saddle holder.
2669 - An egg cup.
2670 - A door opener for when the handle is missing with male and female
Correct, the owner of it said that it was for use when working on an old
door in which the door knob is connected with a square shaft, if the knob is
off of the shaft then the square hole in this tool can be used to turn it.
And if the square shaft has been removed from the lock mechanism, the male
part can be used to test it.
Posting from my desktop PC, as always.
2665, no clue
2666, might be something for wool carding and sorting?
2667, looks like some kind of roller for flatting things, in a machine?
2668, I'm sure we saw something like this before. But, I can't remember its
2669, totally no clue.
2670, the square hole might be for turning on and off pressurized gas tanks
(oxygen, acetylene, etc.) But what is the square blade?

I need some help with the second and fourth items this week:
2660: If you use a turnbuckle for a wire brace, you have the cost of the
turnbuckle and the need to secure the wire to each end. When you need
to make an adjustment, the turnbuckle may be frozen with rust.
Without a turnbuckle, you can make a loop, pulling both ends of the wire
around the same nail from opposite directions, then stapling. You
tighten by twisting and secure the twist by sticking a stick through it.
This clamp looks good for twisting wire while keeping an eye suitable to
put a stick through. Sometimes there's not much room for a lever when
you twist wire. This one is pretty short. If you need more torque,
there seems to be room for a screwdriver on each side. They could be
slid in and out if there isn't room for a complete turn.
The clamp looks big enough for 3 gauge steel wire and perhaps something
bigger. That could make a substantial brace!
