Fun set. I didn't get any of them, but that's fine. Learned a bit of

Sounds like a good idea for it, though for now it remains a mystery
until we can
find a good reference.
Tough set this week, four of the answers have been posted, hopefully
other two in the near future.
Posting from rec.crafts.metalworking as always.
2905) Looks like something for picking up a bundle of hay or something
similar. Lacking a better image of the hinge area, I'll have to
guess that the fork tines close as the handles are spread apart.
The "Larger" links still fail on FireFox on a Solaris system,
but work on a now ancient copy of Opera.
2096) Perhaps something to stretch sheets or towels across while
2097) This looks like a relative of a "nut splitter", which drives
a built-in chisel into one face of a nut which is frozen onto
a bolt to allow it to be removed.
This one seems to combine the chisel and the wrench lever into a
single tool. Slip it over the nut, tighten the nuts to drive
the chisel in, and then pull on the handle in the right
direction to loosen the nut.
It also is easier to put in place with that pivoted bar.
2098) No real clue about this one. Not even a reasonable guess. :-)
Well ... on second thought, perhaps for drawing fairly
lightweight nails, pivoting on the bulge shown just before the
2099) Given the sharpened edges, it looks to be to cut a square
bottomed trough. The stud and ring suggest that it may be part
of a plow, which provides the support and the motion, and the
handle lets you lever the load up. Perhaps for picking up
blocks of soil with a plant growning from them for
2100) Hmmm ... pair of insulated electrodes, with separate terminals
to each, and a pair of projections which cross at right angles
inside a pair of insulating wood handles. I would guess that it
is for spot welding two pieces of wire together where they
cross, perhaps for repairing a welded fence. At a guess, the
terminals go to leads which feed from an automotive lead-acid
storage battery. Maybe one of the older 6V ones from the 1950s
Now to post and then see what others have guessed.
