Default Building Construction Fasteners?

I bought a few hundred pounds of various fasteners from the scrap yard recently. These were from someone who clearly did building construction, mostly tapping screws, lag screws and nails.

In the lot I found these items and thought someone here would know what they are used for.

With the amount of energy that is being consumed I expect most people on earth should be living in Utopia. And now this?

It started hitting the fan in the 1950's

A technologically advanced society would teach their children how to start a fire by rubbing two sticks together before teaching them how to use a lighter.

If you are not having fun then you are doing it wrong.

The rounded head nuts look like it allows the bolt to swivel to be tightened up at different angles. Kinda brings to mind cable rail ends that allows the cable to tighten at different angles.

The 90 degrees Allen’s look like tools supplied with certain products that are put together by the consumer.
