For the third week, I have no useful guesses. While 2185 is some kind of automobile accessory lamp, but I have no useful guess about its specific function.
So why am I posting this? When I saw 2188, I burst out laughing. Many years ago, I saw a cartoon. I don't remember where, possibly the New Yorker. I also don't remember the cartoonist, but it was someone well-known. Possibly Larsen or Chas Addams. The cartoon was of a Dog Carrier. I think that was the caption. A guy was carrying a dog, by a handle, with a hook in the dog's mouth and a screw clamp stuck in the other end. Exactly like the top two things in the picture.

2185. Mechanic's or motorist's lamp powered off the cigarette lighter socket.

2183 is actually a fly box for holding a fisherman's "wet" flies, not "dry flies" as the mechanism would smash the hackle on dry flies. Wet flies are flat.

2189 Maybe a gas stove burner

It appears to be some kind of gas burner, but may not be for a cook stove. It looks like the air intake manifold is designed to hook up to piping to bring in combustion air from some distance. The pictures are pretty lousy so its is hard to tell.

Generally correct
Sounds like a good use for it!

Nope, if you look closely at the patent seen in the photo you can see it's for use with something smaller than a hay bale.

Correct, I was told it was for use by an auto mechanic and that it was plugged into a light socket. I had asked him if you could plug it into the cigarette lighter but he said it was used before cars had lighters in them. Don't know when cars first got lighters and if that is true or not. I'm sure it could have been used on airplanes as someone else suggested.

Looks like you're right, half way down the page at the link below I found this quote:
"Individual dry fly compartments each has its own spring-loaded window. Wet fly Clips will not rust."

Could be Lloyd, but it appears there is a lug on the side of the plug, therefore, I do not think it would be suitable for a cigarette lighter socket

This one came in a leather pouch and could be described as a tool, the hole has a sharp edge on the inside.
