  2. 2608 Could this screw into brick or morter to hold a gate open like a "shutter dog"?

  3. 2606 looks like some sort of vacuum chamber, possibly used in a science class. Or a collection cup, such as the cup on a hand operated pump for bleeding automotive brake lines.

  4. I believe that 2606 was used in flame emission spectroscopy.

  5. 2607 looks like part of a vacuum device.....I agree with above

    2608 looks like the equivalent of a really strong tent-peg....or a small battle axe

    2610....a foot pedal mechanism for a pipe organ?
