3085, might be something from wool carding and sorting? 3086, might be for dissembling a faucet? 3087, first thought is "mitre saw". Looks like the part that holds the saw keeps the edge parallel to the work table. Not sure why. 3088, sampler for coffee beans? 3089, military land mine? 3090, totally no clue. As with the rest of em.
Great set, you really got me thinking.

3085 is a stonemason's tool called a crandalling hammer. It is used to put a textured surface on the face of a stone block.

I think you are probably close. I suspect that it keeps the blade parallel to the work surface as a coincidental result of the design. I think the purpose is actually to keep the face of the blade perpendicular to the work surface.
ALTHOUGH, as you said it may keep the cutting edge parallel with the work surface so that you don't cut through the wood base and into the metal structure.
Or "C" all of the above. ;~)

The owner is looking for information on the upper part, such as patents, manufacturer, value, etc.

I still don't have an answer for this one, the owner thought it might be for removing large staples since that part on the bottom can be used as a fulcrum, but that is just a guess.

3088 - reminds me of a tool to be held in a vise to help apply a " (heat) vulcanizing tire patch" (or similar).

3085) Looks like a scaling hammer for chipping off welding scale.
I presume that the end of the handle has a way to loosen the grip so the points can be removed, sharpened, and replaced, or totally replaced when worn out. That loosening will also allow the points on the other side to be aligned for use before having to remove and re-sharpen the points on all of them.
3086) Well ... it certainly is a form of crimper.
I'm not sure about the diameter. It *looks* a little too big to be used for crimping soft drink and old style beer bottle caps, but otherwise it would work well for that. A bit old, however, as something for food use would have to be of a different metal (easier to clean) that this appears to be.
3087) Well ... first off, it is obviously a miter saw.
As for the mechanism -- it appears to be designed to keep the blade from tilting as it goes down.
It is interesting that the vertical travel available is a lot larger than the usable width of the blade, which suggests that it is intended to make level cuts at whatever angle is set down to a limited depth.
It appears to lock at the top of travel -- perhaps for putting the new workpiece in place without a risk of scaring the surface of the workpiece by dragging against the saw teeth. To start cutting, you apparently pull the ring to unlock it and allow it to descend onto the workpiece.
3088) If the end were a little sharper, I would think that it is a wood turning gouge designed to make a round bottomed groove in the workpiece, and a straight plunge to a specific depth (stopped by the projection apparently silver-soldered onto the bottom of the tool.) The sides would guide it once it reached a certain depth.
It may actually have once been that sharp -- hard to tell from the photos.
3089) This is *not* your friend once you pull the ring. :-)
It is a "mine" -- designed to be implanted by a vehicle which plows up the ground, plants the mines every so often, and then closes the sod down on the mine -- leaving little sign of the disturbed sod. As it departs, it pulls the pin by the ring. The vertical projections are probably what triggers it.
3090) Is there a notch in the claw as is common in woodworking hammers? Hard to be sure, given the angle of view.
Is the edge sharpened, or dull enough to grip and use it as a h normal hammer?
Why is the wrench for various sizes of square nuts or bolt heads in the second image? I would think that it would work for wagon style construction, and if it is in the same image, perhaps the "blade" of the handle is used to operate or adjust something in the wagon.
Now to post and see what others have suggested.
Enjoy, DoN.

Much simpler mitre boxes do that part quite well.
That seems to be most of the purpose of the mechanism.
C1) If the slot in the back fence were wider, I could speculate a mechanism on the back (not shown clearly) to allow the cut to be at a compound angle, but that seems to not be the case.
C2) Perhaps it also allows the weight of the mechanism to provide the needed downforce on the saw blade, thus easing the work for the operator.
Enjoy, DoN.

Yes, I think there is a notch in it.
I'd say it's dull enough to grip, though the owner didn't specify. I think someone just replaced a wood handle with this metal one. Probably not mass produced, but I posted it to find out if anybody had seen one like this before.
I guess the wrench is supposed to be for scale, not sure why it was included.

Yeah it's a strange fuse arrangement. Usually the fuse is separate and screws in. Makes it safer and easier to carry.

I just sent the owner an email asking his opinion on the purpose of the upper mechanism, I'll post his answer when I receive it.
Not much luck yet on the mystery tools in this set, here are my answers for this week:
