  1. 1731 is the bottom side of a brush hog.(tractor mounted mower)

    1729 looks simular to a tool used for grafting trees.

  2. 1733 Looks like part of a Leroy Lettering Set.

  3. 1733 appears to be a surveying tool or a clinometer, except the numbers don't add up.

    45 degrees is usually 100% slope, or for every 1 foot horizontal, you gain or lose 1 foot vertical.

    Could be a clinometer with a different scale though..

  4. 1729. Bwaga at Neatorama has a very convincing link. It is a Boarding Axe.

  5. 1729 Roofing tool for removing shingles?

  6. 1730- probably part of a three phase contactor or perhaps a drum switch?

    1733- for drawing hypoid gear tooth profiles

  7. 1732: after reading the answer: geez, what caliber is that thing for, 25mm? Something Ginormous anyway.
