2155 A cutesy nutcracker.
2160 This looks like it might be useful in cutting, opening and closing
a specific type of chain. Cutters on the sides. Points open links.
Jaws close links.

A nutcracker?? I would like to see that in action.
I assume you put the nut underneath the ball and slam the ball into it.
This definitely has the potential to disintegrate some nuts!
I had looked for a youtube video when I posted the answer but didn't find
one. It does seem like it would be kind of messy, I guess it would work
best if you didn't drop the ball from its full height, and tried to just
slightly crack the nut instead of smashing it. Someone had sent me the
photo, I don't have one of my own to try out.
One standard (ANSI Z87.1 ?) for lens testing is a 1 inch steel ball
dropped from 50 inch height; I've seen almost exactly this gizmo in
an optical shop, as a demonstration of tempered lens toughness,
with the larger ball and shorter drop height. There was a sample
lens to play with...
2157: is a drum lifting device, you lift it by the top shackle and the three
side pieces close in under the drum lid
2158: is a broken flywheel
2159: is a Swiss Army Lock Pick
2160: is a cable clamping tool
This is Correct I used to use one when i worked for Telecom (in NZ) still
have it around somewhere
the front part on the image (the gray bit) is pushed on the krone block and
the black part is a nifty wire cutter
that looks a lot like it there.
2155 - Looks like a toy to me. Pick it up and move around, the ball
follows the inside of the rods.
2158 - Without any size reference, it could be a flywheel, but looks
to me to be a little "beefier", like a drive or "bull" gear for
something big. Appears to have stripped whatever shaft it was mounted
on and then broke. I'm thinking that cart is about 24" long, which
makes the gear close to 30" diameter, center hole close to 8 or 10".
Just recently saw "How it's Made" show on locomotives, reminds me of
the main drive gear attached to the axle, driven by the treaction
Others, 21557, 2159 and 2160 others beat me to. I agree on drum hoist,
telco tool and tire chain tool.
I was thinking of one of the floating balls used to show aerodynamic
principals. An air supply connects to the base and when air is applied
the ball rises in proportion to the pressure. It should stay centered
between the rods which also keep it secured and from flying around.
