2749, spool for drain cleaner flat tape.
2750, maybe bead breaker for small tires?
2751, probably a Wiccan symbol.
2752, the smaller jaws could be pipe wrench,
but no idea what the rest is.
2753 farrier's nail puller??
2754, crude universal joint?

I need some help with the fourth and sixth items this week:
Posting from rec.crafts.metalworking as always.
2749) I'll bet that the 'approximately 36" diameter' is actually
38.1972", which would make the circumference precisely 10 feet.
It is to be rolled along with a handle coming out from the hub,
and the counter telling how far it has rolled. 36" would come
out to be 2.872 meters circumference, so that is unlikely. And
precisely three meters circumference would be 37.59" diameter,
and would be awkward to read.
The second photo is a bit hard to read (too much jpeg
compression), but I'll bet that the counter there has one wheel
which completes a full turn with the wheel, thus its 0-9 display
will display feet.
2750) Only one view makes it more difficult to identify, but I
*think* that the part in the background is a square hollow
tube, and that it works by sliding on a square shaft with teeth
on both sides, and acts as a jack (minus some other parts.
2751) Looks sort of like a hand from a tower clock, intended to point
out the day of the month at a guess. It seems to have been
relocated into an airplane hanger or something of the sort.
2752) Perhaps a tool for bending sheet metal into a cylindrical form,
with the extra curved arms serving as some sort of guide?
2753) Looks like a tool to serve as a guide for a knife blade, and to
split the skin of an ex critter along the cut. I say an ex
critter instead of a patient, because I can't see wood handles
as being sterilizable in an operating room.
2754) Hmm ... no scale given. At first, I was thinking that these
were rather small models, but the two glass objects in the
background look like bell jars, used for containing vacuum (they
are set on a cast iron or steel plate with a greased surface,
(perhaps) a rubber rim, and a hole in the middle through which
the air is evacuated. If these are normal scale, I would
expect the larger of the two to be close to 12" diameter or a
No real clue what the two boxes with the levers are for, but I
think that the "small parts" in the foreground are acccessories
to the boxes. The levers almost look like triggers upside down.
The small parts *look* like they are only about an inch and a
half long, but that is way out of scale with the rest.
It looks as though the one with the fork fits into the hole in
the nearer one and is secured by the screw (which also looks
It will be interesting to discover what these actually are, and
what the actual scale is.
Now to post and then see what others have suggested.
This length is correct, 1-1/2" or maybe just a little longer.
I agree that it looks like they fit together.
On the answer page I have a link to a scarificator set with a small brass
ring torch, and I've seen a few other sets with a torch without the ring,
these torches are the only items that I've found that resemble the items in
my photos. I contacted five different scarificator collectors and none of
them recognized the small brass parts, some suggested they were not actually
part of the bleeder set.
