2582 Terpentine bucket

2584 looks almost like a flax combing vise, but I've never seen one made of metal.

The turpentine buckets we used had a flat side and a large wooden handle.

2581 - Coin counter.
2582 -
2583 - Gunvault pistol safe. Place your fingers in the slots, it reads your prints and opens. Key is a back-up release.
2584 - Saw vice. Used to hold the blade in place while you sharpen or set the teeth.
2585 - Buggy step. Used to provide a stepping point to enter or exit horse drawn buggies, also used on some early cars for the same purpose.
2586 - Looks like a nozzle of some type. Maybe for a fountain?

2581. African phonograph, with stretched out lower lip. Or, maybe a coin sorter, or coil roller. 2582 early fire extinguisher. Kept filled with sand. 2583 "digital" gun safe. 2584 bench vise that clamps on the edge of a table. 2585 hair straightening iron from the 1800s. 2585 burner from a laboratory burner. Brass gas jets, and metal to hold the beaker of chemicals.

I saw one, once. Guy was sorting and counting coins from a vending machine. He set up on a table, in the store near the machine. I found it fascinating to watch.

I was thinking of the fire pails, they used to use in retail stores. Now you mention sap pot, that makes more sense.

Well, others have guessed the others I thought I knew, but not 2586 which is a pin straightener for 7 pin miniature tubes. There are 8 holes so you don't need to worry about aligning the tube properly.
A quick google search found a collection:

2582 does look like the red fire buckets filled with sand, but then why is there no handle? If you look on the web all of them have a handle. That one little hole does not look like it was meant to hold the weight of a bucket filled with sand.
Notice the blackening inside. My guess is this was a personal burn basket for getting rid of confidential documents before the era of shredders.

It's Coca-Cola Red, or at least it was... I'll guess it's the cap catcher bucket for under the Bottle Opener of a Coke Machine.
It would hang from a screw on the side of the cooler. Blackening would be from residual phosphoric acid due to fizz-overs.
