2845 looks more like blasting caps to me ... and 2849 is a replaceable tooth off a hay mowing cutter bar .

2849 Is a sickle guard for a hay mower or grain binder.

Posting from rec.crafts.metalworking as always.
O.K. The first could benefit from having something for scale, like perhaps a dime adjacent to the items.
2845) I've got two thoughts here. The above-mentioned coin might help me to choose between the two.
a) Crushable copper slugs designed for measuring pressure in the chamber of a firearm to test how safe a load may be. It is read in "CUP" (Copper Units of Pressure), and is determined by how much the length decreases during a single firing.
b) "Pusher" tumblers for a pin-tumbler lock. Such a lock has at least two tumblers -- the cylindrical "pusher" and the round-nosed one (operating tumbler) which engages the key. There will also be a spring to hold them down, and there may be "master disks" to allow two different keys to operate the same lock. The pushers may also be reduced in diameter in the middle (like a spool) to make it more difficult to pick. However -- I doubt that the pusher tumblers would be packaged in such quantity -- and they are offered in more than one length to accommodate the variation in length of the operating tumbler -- and possibly one or more master disk. Also, they are usually made of bronze, and not copper plated, so I think that choice (a) above is the correct one here.
2846) Purely a guess here. It looks as though it hooks onto a ridge or rod at the right-hand end, and it might be a cutting board for meat or cheese, with the hooks allowing it to tilt for convenience.
2847) This looks a though it is intended to have the plate buried in concrete, to serve as a weight or an anchor for a long cable to somewhere. But I wonder how strong the center pin would be with the fairly simple clip at the bottom. (Unless there is clearance for the concrete to fill the wall between the center rod and the sleeve.
2848) Well ... the "2014" is not the year -- yet. :-)
If they are expected to be used in pairs, and if set parallel, it would be possible to bounce a beam of light between the two in a zigzag pattern, and with a photosensor, to detect anything passing between the two. The button could be to announce your intention to pass between the two -- perhaps to avoid an alarm being sounded.
2849) Perhaps the point on a boar spear? The cross-piece is intended to keep the boar from continuing to push his way up the spear to get to the person wielding the spear (as they have been known to do)
2850) This one also could benefit from size information.
Looking at the texture of the cloth, I would guess that the ring has an ID of about 1" -- which would make it likely to serve as a mount for a rifle or pistol 'scope (telescopic sight). For a rifle, they are typically used in pairs.
Now time to send this and then see what others have suggested.
Enjoy, DoN.

2845 gluing pegs? 2846, no clue. 2847 maybe an anchor designed to put into cement? 2848 door bells from anorexia bullemia center. 2849 no clue. 2850 no clue. . Christopher A. Young Learn more about Jesus

Commenting again on 4829. This is a sickle bar tooth. This is a picture of some of them, mostly modern ones.

Note that the blade goes back and forth. The tooth sticks out and provides a blunt surface to force the blade against the hay. This cuts the hay.
This looks to be an old one. I have seen these go for $40. It is probably an old junk one. But folks go crazy for any of that old country item. This is what I think this cam off of.

It was a yearly ritual to replace broken parts and sharpen everything before hay season. I use to help my grandfather sharpen the blades on an old treadle grindstone. As I got older, it was me doing the sharpening, etc.

I will try this again. Google keeps changing my search around and substituting what it wants.

Hopefully this will go through.

I give up. Do a search for horse drawn hay mower or something similar. Every time I come up with something, Google goes back to the original search and won't let me send what I want. I guess the folks who have horse drawn equipment don't buy enough Google ads. Often I will try to do a search on a specific spelling of a word. This is often an URL based spelling. Google will substitute what it wants instead. And sometimes I am trying to put in some quotation marks. And Google will change the search before I even finish typing in my search works.
I am not going to fight it any more. Google can be a royal pain in the ass. sometimes.

Use the right mouse button on the image and select "copy image location".
Paste it into notepad or vi or emacs or whatever.

doesn't track you , uses google as a search engine but doesn't remember what you've searched for before . It rocks IMO .

Sounds possible
A number of people have given this answer, looks right to me. Thanks

Nope, they are solid copper.
2849 is a replaceable
Correct

The first link you posted showed 22 pages of sickle bar mowers. The second link showed 23 pages of horse drawn mowers. So the links worked here anyway... Thanks, brings back memories! ;>)}

Might I suggest that you first try another search engine. My current preference is for one called DuckDuckGo which does not track you, and does not offer ads.
I noticed that the URLs in your previous postings were *very* long. I had the window widened to about 350 characters (in a double-monitor screen), and it still folded to one and a half lines. :-)
Sometimes, you can work around this by trimming off the very long first part of the Google url, and leaving just the actual URL of the site.
Good luck, DoN.

They could indeed. I'm not sure if they are hollow (one of them looks to be open ended). If so, and the right size, they could be capillary pipe ends:

Rats, I posted in last week's thread!
2846: The arms look spindly. I wonder if they're metal. Near the arms, there's a wide groove across the board on the side that would be up. I wonder if it's for slicing through something instead of cutting against the board. The last raised portion could serve as a visual gage to slice something into 1" pieces and drop them into a container about 24" in diameter. I've never seen a barrel of pickled eel.
2848: Are the push buttons electrical? There are mirror sundials. Perhaps XI is for the hour around 11 AM and the XII is for the hour around noon.

I downloaded the image, and played with the gamma and I believe that dark face is just a case of the angle of illumination -- and perhaps even reflection of a dark area adjacent to the photo area.
If I had believed that the end was open, that it might be something like a very small percussion cap.
Enjoy, DoN.

I had sent the owner of them an email asking for the size but never heard back, maybe he is on the road.
Good answer! That's exactly what they are.
Thanks to everyone who identified the scope mount, we have a probable answer for the mirrors, and I'm still not sure about the other two mystery items:
