1501: Don't know....but it looks dangerous.
1502: Electrical fitting for Dr. Frankenstein's attempts to reanimate
the dead flesh of his monster. Inserts into the neck I believe. One on
1503: Obviously an Inquisition device for pulling the tongues out of
heretics and infidels to the Catholic church. Then comes the boiling
in oil part of the procedure.
1504: No idea.
1505: Cluster bomb munition bomblet. And if that is what it is you
better be real sure it's inert.
1501 Let me make a wild guess... You wheel it up to a fence-post. You
clamp it on. You turn the crank to bore 5 holes for fence rails. Yeah...
I know it sounds like the hard way to do it. Yeah... the bottom rail would
be too low.
1502 Strange... If the thing were a splice clamp to join 2 cables, the lips
on the sliding piece are on the wrong side. Perhaps it is used to separate
a pair of cables, with one cable resting on the chevron groove and the other
in the slot in the screw. But... this doesn't account for the shape of the
top of the slider and bottom of the larger piece, which resemble a cable
1505 I'm having trouble visualizing this. The first two pictures seem to be
of the same side, with the point of view moved a little bit down and right.
The third picture seems to be of the bottom. Is there something going on on
the back? I'll make a completely wild guess... A golf-ball vulcanizing
1506 Silly guess... Snow shoe binding.
I wonder along similar lines it it's something to do with paying out, or
twisting in some way, wire fences. But I don't see why it should want
to twist (let alone twist alternate levels in opposite directions).
Is 1504 something as obvious as part of a safety light? The holes look
to large for that.

The other reply was correct, it is a "split bolt" wire splice. Around
here they seem to be generically referred to by the brand name "Burndy".
guess - inlet suction hose strainer for fire hose?
Cluster bomb bomblet.
not sure on the others...
1502. A "split bolt" for splicing electrical wires. I quoted Burndy
automation for making the part with the female thread almost 20 years
ago. The most interesting part of the project was the fact that the OD
threads are coined (cold formed) in a large high speed press.
1504. A pickup screen for pumping water out of a pond, stream, etc.
Probably for the fire department.
I've heard most of the names people have offered for the
"split-bolt". We always called them "Kearney's" when I was
working in the trade (shrug). I guess whatever name stuck
with us was related to one's local supply house.
1501 - ???
1502 - Cable splice bug. Used to connect electrical cables.
1503 - ???
1504 - 6" suction strainer. With a rocker lug connection. The loop on
the other end is for a rope. That allows it to be tied off to keep it
off the bottom and the sand/silt/dirt out of the pump.
1505 - Probably not correct but it looks like a pipe cleaning pig.
1501 no clue The alternate clamps will alternately open or close as you
crank one direction reverse when you crank the opposite.
1502 Common electrical cable clamp
1503 No idea but I sure wouldn't mind having one for holding rope when
doing rope splices. It would allow you to hold the rope while doing the
actual splice, then you could use it to form the strands back into place
to make it a nice job.
1504 Intake stainer for a fire engine suction hose when used to draw
water from a lake or stream.
