2875 String/cord tightener or slack eliminator. For a long curtain or blind cord. Wedge the excess length into the two narrow slits with the extra loop in the middle.
2876 Smudge pot. Burn smokey oil for light, heat or warning.
2879 Grease gun.
2880 Counter/accumulator. As small groups of events happen, stick a pointy thing in a numbered hole and rotate clockwise to the stop on the right.

2875 - Looks like the handle of a corkscrew
2876 - Looks like a mini soap dispenser, so presumably for dispensing something other than soap?
2879 - Rivet gun?

Looks like it might be a pressure regulator for a pressure cooker.

2877- Looks like it moves the 'claw' based on the temperature of the tube (that part looks just like a furnace aquastat), but as to why it has a claw...
2879- standard answer for any rivet/grease-gun looking thing- it's for setting cleco pins!

All the Clecos I've used on aircraft have had a simple pliar-type tool for setting, or were set/released with an adjusting nut. But I've heard of such tools...
I can remember one job on a C-47 cargo door mod where we must've had 1500 Clecos installed at one time. DAMN, the boss must've spent a lot on those!

Posting from my desk top PC, as always.
2875 looks a bit like a cable link, for auto brake cables. The cable had a ball at the end, and it went into the center, much like a beaded key chain. 2876, maybe hanging oil lamp, or citronella for Mrs. O'Leary's barn. 2877, no serious guesses. 2878, not much idea. 2879, one of these, maybe. Grease gun, rivet tool, sausage stuffer, caulk dispenser, or?? 2880, maybe part of a safe and vault combination lock? . Christopher A. Young Learn more about Jesus

Guarantee you it's a tire plug gun. Specifically a Jiffy with a nozzle holding clip on the barrel. I have the exact same one. Inserts a mushroom shaped plug. There is a second tool with a handle on it missing from the picture. To use you clear out the hole, screw the nose to the T-handle, apply some cement, Push the probe and nozzle through the hole. Unscrew the nozzle. Load the plug in the gun, screw the gun to the nozzle, then squeeze the handle till it stops. Now pull the gun/nozzle out and the plug pulls up tight inside the tire and seals the hole as well. Done properly it is an approved repair.

WHICH might be the reason that after using thousands of Clecos, I'd never actually seen such a gun!

I use Clecos a bunch doing body work. Much easier to hold panels in place prior to welding. Also makes it easier to do all mock-up work and keep everything aligned. Which remind me I need to get some more of the 1/8" P series. And some more clamps, someone "borrowed" my box full...

2879 Gun for tagging livestock's ears. 2875 Something for tightening something that's on a line (similar to a spoke wrench for bike) or for holiding 2 ends of a cable together.. that has a crimp on each end... (best I could do)

The last one is correct, the patent calls it an adding machine.

Good answer, it is indeed a tire plug gun.

I think old oil lamp might be correct, closest thing I could find to it is some antique campaign torches.

That's it! It actually is a spoke wrench, so that was a good guess on this one.

I knew it wasn't, but we're talking tradition here, dammit!
