A few more tools or types of thing for help with please!

Definitely getting there with the sorting now, and I am all set up and enjoying e..y. It took me a while to understand it and get started but am mostly enjoying it and chatting to folks country wide. All credit to UK workshop members for all the help with that.

Some of these are quite challenging! Picture one and two I have no clue at all, picture three is an old drawer lock chisel, not really sure what picture four is except maybe it's for holding a razor blade? Picture five I haven't got any idea and picture six is a "Thor" hammer with interchangeable ends.

I think (only THINK mind) that:

Pic 1 - lathe dogs;

Pic 2 - blanks from which old-fashioned keys can be cut;

Pic 3 - probably "offset screwdrivers" (used when access to screw head is limited/not straight on);

Pic 4 - dunno

Pic 5 - dunno

Pic 6 - mallet (metal working type) with removable/replaceable heads - maybe deadblow type (loose weight inside?)

Welcome back to UKW

The things in the first picture are wingnuts, but with just a single wing. You see them on sliding bevels where an ordinary twin wing would stick out in the way.

On number 2 I'm guessing but they might be keyhole covers. A screw through the hole lets them dangle over a keyhole so nobody can peek through.

No 3 definitely a drawer lock chisel like Trevanion said.

Would the first be a single sided wing nut? (I've seen em on something....) pre edit.....Ah, that's it like Andy said :wink:
The wooden handle could be a spokeshave blade sharpening holder.

Hello friends, it is very warming on this wild February day to have your kind help. The draw lock chisel on closer looking is Stormont brand. I've photographed it ready for my next listing. I saw the Lie Nielson ones!

Hope everyone is keeping warm

Pic 5 reminds me of my grandfather's lead-bashing tools used for working sheet lead into complex shapes, mainly for roofing purposes. I don't recall one exactly that shape but the style is right and since he (and I assume most real old-fashioned plumbers) made his own I imagine there was quite a variation in shapes and sizes.

The metal clips with this look like those used to hold glass in an aluminium greenhouse frame.
