Yes, saw buck is the right name for it.

Wine bottle corker is correct, this one is a floor model, they also make bench corkers which are made for use on benches or tables.

2323: log cutting sawhorse? Thing in middle appears to be a tool-holder. I've used one very similar as a kid.

2325. Wooden swage block. You can see something similar on this web page if you scroll down some:

have two separate items but whoever made this one, combined them into one block. I have one in metal that is similar to this one. Wooden ones are used by jewelers, coppersmiths, etc. whereas the metal one I have is used for blacksmithing.

2325: a coin till (the non-mechanical version of a cash register drawer).
2326: looks like a capture device for something soft; a towel holder?
2327: fire bucket (I recall these filled with sand)
2328: radar detector, unobtrusive on the visor, probably beeps whenever smokey lights you up on the interstate

And mine.
Absolutely. I have one very similar to it in my basement.
2325 looks like it could be used as a desk drawer organizer: pens and pencils in the grooves, paper clips and thumb tacks in the bowls. Don't know if that was its intended use, though...

It's fake. A real one would have a picture of Alexander Hamilton.

Posting from rec.crafts.metalworking as always.
2323) A saw buck -- for supporting logs while they are sawn.
2324) Interesting beastie.
It looks like it is intended to hold grease cartridges, and dispense it on strokes of the pump. I can't see where the grease exits it, however. The disc and spring on the rod advance with each stroke of the handle, pushing the grease out the top of the cartridge and into -- where?
Perhaps it is incomplete, and with parts not shown is for pumping new grease into a bearing assembly, forcing out the old grease.
2325) Lacking anything specific, I would consider it to be a desktop organizer. The bowls would hold paper clips and the like, the grooves for pencils, pens, rulers and whatever.
2326) Looks like something to hold a half-round tubing which is pressed in from the upper left, and when it is withdrawn (hollow side down) it will be clamped.
But -- if it is intended to be mounted on a vertical surface instead, it might be for gripping a horse's reins when "parking" the horse. :-)
2327) Well ... it appears to be an upside down bucket, with a domed bottom. I'm not sure what the purpose of the domed bottom is.
2328) Looks somewhat like a garage door opener remote, designed to clip on the car's visors.
Now to post this and see what others have suggested.
Enjoy, DoN.

This one is correct
Note that old cable spools were often used as saw horses. We had several when I was a kid. They were thrown off ships after the steel cable or rope was used up.

2325. Pen and ink bottle holder for a draftsman. Here's a glass one.

I have to disagree. 2325 has -round- bottoms to the 'holes'. Anything to hold ink bottles would have a _flat_ bottom.
Also, 3" diameter would be an awfully -large- ink container. All the "India ink" bottles I've used have been somewhere around 1-3/4" dia. (don't have one at hand to measure, might have been as big as 2" :))

Just posted my answers, I'm not 100% sure about number 2326 but that's what the owner claimed so I'm going to stick with that unless I find proof that it's actually something else.

It don't believe it either. What's the point of the swinging part? I've seen many pictures of Model Ts and never saw this on the radiator. They either had a screw cap to add water or a gauge with wings to measure the water pressure.
