3035 As all the slots are different sizes, and it is not particularly
rugged, and I think I can see different markings near each slot...
I'll guess this is a gauge, perhaps a wire gauge.

3035 looks to be a checker for the sizes of various washers or o-rings.
Hangs on wall, leaves space to fit devices through the slots.

3033 Glideslope antenna. Mounted in the nose of an airplane to receive
the signal for the glideslope component of the ILS landing system.
Largely superceded by simpler, more efficient antennas these days.
3035: 8 slots in one direction and 8 in the other. I wonder if it was
used to check coins, particularly where coins from more than one nation
were in circulation. If you can't read what's stamped on the coin, you
see which slot fits the thickness and diameter. If you can read it but
think it may be counterfeit, you check the size with the gauge, then
You are correct that it's for checking the weight of a coin, some of the slots
this device are for gold coins, the others for silver.
Still not sure about number 3034 but the rest have been correctly identified
I haven't decided yet if I'm going to post on Thursday next week since it's
Thanksgiving, I might opt for Wednesday or Friday. When I make a decision I'll
post it here and let everyone know.
