A few wild guesses:

1) Reminds me of a knurling tool used on a lathe in place of a cutter.
2) A diesel injector
3) A thumbscrew. I have a few of these on my Gleniffer vintage diesel
4) No eye deer
5) As above!
6) A 12mm to 13mm swage?
7) Rusty old power plane drum
8) Candle dipping
9 & 10) See 4.

1. :) Correct answer Mike4 and imbiber, it is a knurling tool.
2. :) Correct again Mike4, it is a diesel injector for a common rail engine.
3. :( I've never called it a thumbscrew. It is for a specific purpose.
4. :?:
5. :?:
6. :( Not a swage.
7. :| 1/2 mark for power plane drum.
8. :( Nothing to do with candles.
9. :) I think I will have to give you that, imbiber. It is a bell punch. It is a self-centring centre punch for use on the ends of round bars. It will also work on other regular shapes.
10. :) Correct answer kiloran, it is a reed switch.

3 looks like the thing to lock weights onto a dumbbell or barbell.

The centre of a metal bar. Put this over the end of the bar, hit the end of the tool with a hammer and you get a centre-punch mark in the centre.

Correct answer, Scott. I think it's called a spinlock.

Close enough. It is a moulder block. It could be used on a spindle moulder with the right size spindle except that the law now requires that blocks with limiters are used on machines without a power feed. This one was used on moulders similar to this, https://www.riechel-export.com/en/Archi ... mat-22n2-2 which mould all four sides in one pass. Most mouldings can be made in one pass (skirting, picture frame, coffin strip, etc.) as long as there are not any very deep cuts. It also depends upon the power of the machine.

This one seized onto the spindle which is why one of the slots had to be machined almost all the way through to get it off. Screws were used in the existing screw holes to expand the block once it had been machined.

A crank puller it is, for pulling off bicycle cranks.

Good quiz, thank you. duly recced.

We are still struggling with Nos 5, 6 and 8. May we have some clues please?

I'm finding No 5 bewildering. Is it painted metal, or plastic? Pretty sure there was a No 6 in amongst my dad's tools in the garage when I was a brat, and dad started out as a toolmaker. Is the tube in No 8 glass or some sort of plastic?
