A bit of confidende this time:
3043. a spring compressor, I think for valve springs. 3044. OSHA required safety cap for rebar 3045. For planting seedlings?. 3046. fire plug wrench. 3047. no good idea decorative pie fluter? 3048. carring case for horse shoes and pins?

3044 I'll guess that this is a bottle cap un-screwer. Push down on a (reasonably narrow size range) screw-top on a bottle and twist to open it. Doesn't look like it would work too well unless the cap has ridges.
3035 An even less well informed guess: An agricultural implement to pick some shallow root veggie. Push down with foot near the shaft, until it is deeper than the root. Then step on the flap to grasp it. Then pull up, while not falling over while standing on one foot.

3046 looks as though it's use may be similar to a fire hydrant wrench.
3048 I'm fairly sure it's a container for carrying battery cleaning solution and acid/electrolyte in separate cavities. The pockets at the end are provided for storing the hygrometer, cleaning brushes ect.

Posting from my desk top PC in the living room, as always.
3043, reminds me a bit of a pallet puller. 3044, some kind of plug to cover a hole? 3045, big candle snuffer? whoops, see the second photo. Post hole digger, maybe. 3046, this is a pretty old one. I'm sure of what it is, and will leave it for others to say. Modern ones have a different tip, on the "head" but serve the same function. I personally own a modern version of this. 3047, nice wooden handle. Beyond that, no clue. 3048, no clue.

I think this is right, it's difficult to tell from the photo but I believe it's for five sided nuts.
This answer is correct, on the side it said "battery kit"

Nope, that's not it

This first part is correct
But not for picking, it's for the opposite

Correct
Good answer
Yes, but not for seedlings
Consensus says that this is right
Neither of these two

It is a fire hydrant wrench. I lived in the Bronx in the Summer when I was a kid. There was no AC except in the movie theaters. Somewhere someone would come up with a wrench. Nothing like a spray from a hydrant. Of course the cops or FD would come and turn the hydrant off. With thousands of Hydrants opened illegally, the water pressure would drop, hindering fire fighting.

I heard something about sprayer caps, they could use. Some water flow, but not wide open.
I'd think some of the building owners could put a cold only shower head out front, and help the kids keep cool that way. But, that would run up the owner's water bill.

Now days, I've heard them called hydrants. But, it's the same concept. Around me (western NY) they have five pointed lug to turn, a very, very few are four pointed. This one does four or five.
The larger hoses have two types of lug to allow the use of a tool to tighten or loosen. This one does pin lugs, though there are rocker lugs.
