1648 Tongs used to forge iron under steam hammer.ReplyDelete
The last item is a Boker production version of a Wilson Tactical knife called a "Cop Tool." Pry tip, knife blade, and line/clothing cutter on the back.ReplyDelete
1646: It's a tire knocker used by truckers.
1647: I think this hammer was made for coopers.
I agree with the above and think 1645 is a camera.ReplyDelete
1646 A Tire thumper to check the pressure in truck tiresReplyDelete

1645 Slide copierReplyDelete
1645 Hmm looking at the frame size, morel likely a camera for getting still frames from a 8 or 16mm movie filmReplyDelete
1645 - Think it's just a viewer, not a camera. For either microfilm, or 8mm film.ReplyDelete
1645 - fixed focus camera, used for copying something (slides perhaps, but the front end looks wrong for that)ReplyDelete
1646 - fish billy, for clubbing toothy critters after hauling them into a boat
1647 - glaziers hammer
1648 - railroad construction perhaps - tongs used for picking up rails ?
1650 - rescue knife, used as a pry bar/seat belt cutter, etc
