Pic 1 is a catspaw.
Pic 2 looks like some sort of wire cutter?
Here's one on the Bay:
You can still buy something very similar to the top nail puller. I just did. I was the only thing I could find that would allow me to pull ring shank nails from my deck boards.
It worked great!
the top one is a nail puller, and you are warm on the bottom one
hint; what holds planes togehter
Rivets? I've seen nuts with a hole drilled though them to hold a piece of wire also. The different sized holes suggest different gauges of something.
Bottom one is a rivet cutter, I think I have one in one of my tool boxes.
I bought a nail puller like that at a junk shop about a year ago. Haven't needed it yet, though.
I have an old one of my grandfather's, if you do any framing it will come in handy at some point, although the new air driven spikes with their weakly attached heads are sometimes a challenge to pull out with it, or anything for that matter........I wish the heads of coiled air nails were a little more rugged, would help with the f-ups
I will have to post some more pics of odd items
I got one. I can't remember where I got this, but it is a neat item.
What is it?
You've got me on that one. No clue.
I have one of those, though it's a different arrangement... it's an alcohol blowtorch.
