Ok I have a lock on 184 its a pipe reamer for smoking pipes. As a matter of
fact I need a new reamer wanna get rid of that one ?
Yes, it's a pipe reamer, I'm not selling this one but if you search for
"Kleen Reem" on ebay you'll find a few just like it.

If that little concave edge is sharp, then it's a ripping chisel,
Put it in an air hammer and run it down some sheetmetal, such as a car
exhaust pipe. The "horn" stops the chisel slipping off the edge of the
My source has a different name for them, but it is for working on boiler
firetubes so I guess your answer is close enough to call correct. According
to a book that I have it's called a beading tool.
It was always referred to as "caulking" when I did it (probably the
most horrible job I've ever done that didn't involve animal
by-products), but you're right, strictly speaking it would be beading
rather than caulking.
Does anyone still caulk boilers ? Can you even do it, if they're in
steel plates rather than iron ?
189. is a copper pipe swage to make sweat fittings.
190. No idea.
191. No idea. Packing olives in those skinny round bottles.
Pulling some kind of plug.
192. Ice pick / ice breaker
193. Air chisel bit.
194. Secret compartment key chain

I thought #189 might be a blank for a stepped billdrit
but the shank is way too large for that.
#185 looks like a hair/fur shear for animal feet/delicate places.
#191 kitchen tool: a vacuum breaker for canning jars.
#184 is a puller of some sort. Hmmm...
I'll apologize for offending someone...right
after they apologize for being easily offended.

It looks as though it could be used for that purpose, depending
on the thickness of it.
How about lipstick applicator?
Is it on a pedestal, or is that some form of checkered tile? I
could picture it being used to expand the end of some tubing, but I
would expect some way to extract it.
It could also perhaps be simply a demo of the capabilities of a
CNC lathe, or a manual lathe operator's skill.

Perhaps a lid lifter for soda and beer bottles? Perhaps
designed to do less damage to the lids than most openers do.
192) For carding wool, perhaps?
190) Looks like part of the setup on a metal planer or shaper to be
set at an angle between the table and the workpiece to help it
resist the thrust of the tool? The diamond-engraved end would
rest against the workpiece, and the hex shank would have
internal threads, so a jackscrew could be extended between it
and some hard point mounted on the table?
