  1. 1519 coin dispenser
    1520 hammer/axe eye wedge
    1521 battery tester
    1523 glassblowing tool?
    1524 blowtorch for heating soldering irons

  2. I'm with Canem -- 1523 is a glass-blowers shaping tool.

    I'll be interested in seeing what 1522 is--some kind of assembler's jig I'd guess.
