Item 2422 are all Tri-clover type stainless steel pipe fittings as used in the beer,food, cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries.

2419 This looks like a Check Protector embosser. Although the pattern looks a bit coarse, this looks like it was used to emboss a pattern over the amount of a check to prevent alteration.

This may be a bird call, or similar toy. The wooden rod is dusted with powdered rosin, and when inserted in the cylinder and twisted will make chirping sounds.

2420 is a "double bubble" whisky shot glass. Warm water is put in the lower portion, and the whisky goes in the top.
2422 are all sanitary tubing fittings. Probably at a dairy.

Good answer, the photo was taken at a winery.

Correct, it's an old mule mounted ballot box.

Someone buy this man a drink! It is indeed a glass for drinking whiskey with a chaser.

Rob H.
I think that this is probably correct.

If it was two pieces, I'd have said, "early coffee percolator without the internal tube thingie."

Rich Grise fired this volley in news:jbrkpo $kkl$ snipped-for-privacy@dont-email.me:
They weren't percolators, Rich, the were "Vacu-lators".
The water bubbled up through the tube under steam pressure. When it was removed from the heat, it was sucked back down through the coffee grounds.
I have owned both glass and stainless steel versions, and next to a _good_ drip coffee maker, they make the best brew around.

Posting from Rec.crafts.metalworking as always.
2419) I have two options for this:
A) Stamped over a signature, to prevent erasing and re-signing by another party.
B) "Paper Welder" -- secures two or more sheets of paper together without metal staples or glue.
2420) Looks a little like some early coffee maker bowls, but way too small.
Perhaps a urine sample container, with the neck marking a specific volume.
2421) Perhaps a fixture for making the wooden sections of a wagon wheel which goes within the steel tire?
Otherwise -- for steaming wood to take a curve -- perhaps as part of a guitar or other musical instrument?
2422) High vacuum fittings and couplings -- the "ConFlat" style IIRC.
The only part which I don't see are the spacers with a groove for an O-ring to go between each pair of flats.
Nope -- not Conflat -- but another style, the KF style. (Which went by several other names, too). Look at this Wikipedia entry, the first photo:/

I've used both styles in the past.
2423) For when brass knuckles are not brutal enough?
Perhaps for meat tenderizing.
2424) Guesses below based on the proximity to the _Big Game Hunting_ book.
Perhaps for accessories for big game rifles -- ammo or similar things.
Or perhaps (though not very convenient) a carrier for a serious telephoto lens -- for big game hunting without killing.
Now to post, and then to go see what others have suggested.
Enjoy, DoN.
