2473 vacuum cleaner nozzle for under the sofa? 2474 the round ball probably has female threads? Which makes it a towel holder. 2475, some kind of wrench, but what? 2476 looks a bit like the "ink balls" that were used to put ink on old movable type printing pressess. The ball is coated with leather, of course. There's a historic site within driving distance of me that has ink balls. 2477, gee whiz. Harbor Freight is still in business. You could contact them, and see if someone at the office knows. Me, sorry, not sure. 2478, something based on a wick type oil lamp. Beyond that, I'm guessing.

2476 ? How about a form for making pinatas? Marco Polo discovered them on his China trip. Nowadays, you might use a balloon for a form.
It looks as if you could make a paper-mache pinata up to 53 degrees north of the equator, like Dublin or Liverpool, and still get the wedges out after withdrawing the center piece. Then you could put in the goodies and attach a paper-mache cap. Perhaps this would be more rigid and could be filled fuller than if you made a pinata out of two hemispheres.

Yeah, but Stormy, those balls are filled with wool, not wood. One letter off!

I guess I should give you about a 90% on this answer, it _is_ a bottle opener but it's for a specific kind of bottle, one which most people here have probably opened on at least one occasion.

Thanks! I'll pass this on to the person who sent the photo, they got it in a box lot that they had purchased at an auction.

2478 Maybe a humidifier? 2nd guess.

Looks like I should have taken the photo from a lower angle so it would be more obvious that the slot that you can see on the lower right is a key hole.

The first one is correct! I'll give a hint, it was for use on a farm.

Not technically correct but you're on the right track for one of the uses for this device.

Yes, otherwise known as a brooder
Correct, if it's too dry then egg shells can stick to hatching chicks.
One use for this device has still gone unanswered.
