The top one is a saw tooth setter.

Drawing a blank on the other two.

The second one looks like a plumbers faucet stem wrench.

Herk, you are the first person I have shown that to that knew it was a handsaw tooth setter, amazing. I will wait a little while and let others guess the other two.

Wow, can't believe we went from installing an anode rod to setting saw teeth, and all the same thread. Maybe somebody needs to start a thread with old tools, and what they are

Could title it: Name this tool. First prize could be a free year on Forrest River Forums.

I agree. Now it has its own home.

OK, way to go Herk, here is a good one, name them all. They were some of my grandfather's tools I have had since his death in 1978.

This wrench came in the tool box with this car which we think is a 1909 Ford model R (note the RH steering) in which my grandfather and grandmother are sitting. The wrench must be one of the original "fit all" wrenches made. It has similar sizes on the reverse side to fit numerous other things.

This tool was used on old wood cook stoves. The pointed end end was used to lift the 4 round plates that covered the cooking surface and allowed the cook to put additional wood in the fire. The end with the rectangular slot is the end they used to insert over the shaker grate lever that stuck out on the bottom of the stove just above the ash cleanout door. It was then moved from side to side to shake the ashes down into a sheet metal pan which was then removed and the ashes were either thrown out or saved to make soap. The tool was usually stored in one of the back plates on the stove top. There was also a door under the cooking surface and above the cleanout door to allow for the initial loading of firewood, paper, kindling and starting the fire. I ate many meals cooked by my grandfather on this kind of stove.
