A wild guess for 3171 is that it's a glass drill (that is, a drill for making holes in glass, rather than - oh you know).

3169, handgun maint tool, or maybe rifle. Drill to clear the gas port. Just a wild guess. 3170, depth adjuster for a farm machine. 3171, drain cleaner, maybe? Remove hair from a drain? 3172, no clue. 3173, some kind of clamp? 3174, scrapers to remove mud from shoes?
For whatever reason, I can't get RCM on this usenet provider and reader. Not sure I can get R Woodworking. So, I read and cross post from rec puzzles.

Rifle tool is correct.

used wicking, gooey oil, etc without forcing any deeper like a drill bit can.
Sounds reasonable
Yes, that's exactly what it is.

Watchmaker's clamp is correct, not sure if it's for engraving, I thought it was for repairs.

3169) Never seen anything like it before, but at a guess, it is a tool for breaking into locked containers.
3170) A tool for roughly squaring a chunk of wood, perhaps?
3171) Hmm ... larger image out of sequence on the alternate site.
Looks like it has a square on the left-hand end for a tap wrench.
I would say that it is for such things as:
1) Extracting chips from the bottom of a drilled hole.
2) Extracting wood wedged into a keyhole.
3) Removing the parts of a broken tap in a hole being threaded.
4) Extracting the remains of a wooden dowel from a hole, after it has been partially drilled out.
3172) Perhaps a tool for skiving the overlapping ends of a leather drive belt in preparation for gluing.
3173) Looks like a wooden vise for holding a lock designed for going in wooden furniture like old desks and such while the lock is being worked upon.
3174) For arranging flowers?
Now to post and then see what others have suggested.
Enjoy, DoN.

3169: looks like a weapon-maintenance multitool, except for the drill. Maybe for a flamethrower?
3170: work holder for jigsaw operations?
3171: an applicator for leather lacing?
3172: cigarette-rolling machine
3173: workholding vise for a jeweler (carver of cameos?)
3174: rest for soldering iron (or some hot rivets)

3171 Looks like a thing for inserting a plug in a tyre to fix a puncture.

3171 The guesses as a cleanout tool look good, would also be very good for pulling fibers/threads/cords through a hole. Push through hole, twist clockwise to grab fibers, pull though hole, twist counterclockwise to release.

Those all sound like good answers but I'm not having any luck in proving any of them.
