Posting from my desk top PC in the living
room, as always.
3169, handgun maint tool, or maybe rifle.
Drill to clear the gas port. Just a wild
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
3169 Fencing multi-tool
3170 Fence post alignment jig
3171 Guage for checking for proper twist in barbed wire
3172 Semi-automatic stapler for fence wire
3173 Escutcheon mold for fence gate medallions
3174 Anti-slip pads for boots for use while building fences in muddy conditions

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
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
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.
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 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.
