There should be another set. It looks like adjustable width hold downs for a mill etc.

yeah, one could use them for some form of sheet metal bending maybe even weld a small duckbill flange on them or die them up for a certain bend or shape

The action of this one is a bit difficult to explain.

It looks like a screw driver for slotted screws but for a special application. Both ends are the same. They each have two positions, free to slide and locked against spring pressure. Shown are the two positions on each end.

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.

I’m still trying to figure this out.

Almost looks like a tool to drive sheet metal screws that have both 5/16” hex head and straight slotted groove.

Well the hex measures almost .390 so it doesn’t really engage a 3/8 head properly. Moreover the pin holding the socket to the shaft is small and would not hold up well to a power driving.

This thing looks more like and adjusting tool of sorts.

This one sounds and acts like a hydraulic device. When I turn the protruding square shaft it is spring loaded in one direction and returns slowly when let go, makings a swishing sound as if liquid passing through an orifice.

I presume this is a door closer but would like someone to confirm.
