1719. This unidentified tool was sent in by a visitor who provided this description:
The bar with the wooden handle is about 16" long, and the longer bar is about 18". The steel bars that it is made from are all 1" wide by 7/32", and the original finish seems to have been blue (paint?). Some of the bolts and nuts don't appear to be original, but the two bolts that run through the "double handle" section are welded in place at their heads. All three pieces have identical ends (the 3 "teeth" are all exactly the same size and shape).

  1. 1717: Brick mould.

    1718: For some reason I think it's a pneumatic tube sending/receiving station.

    1721: Homing pidgin carrying case.

  2. 1720 looks like it's used to make "beer-can" chicken...

  3. 1717 Agree with brick mold.
    1718 Looks like tin. Belongs in kitchen I think. Maybe on end of long coal stove?
    1720 Looks like my upright roasting chicken holder.

  4. Correct answers so far:

    1717. Brick mold
    1720. Beer can chicken roaster

    >1718 Looks like tin. Belongs in kitchen I think. Maybe on end of long coal stove?

    You're on the right track, but it was used in another location.

  5. 1720 Gas Cylinder Stand
