    The brass colored one looks to me like a plumb bob. If there's a small hole in that ribbed-edge insert on top....then the odds go up for a plumb bob.

    I can't place the other one at the moment. Looks somewhat familiar, but.........

    Thanks, ****, a PB was my first thought too, but turns out I did get an ID on it and it's a trammel point I believe, something used to scribe circles. No idea how they work.

    Still need an ID on the first item.

    Ha! Trammel point it is then. I have a couple different sets of those. (Does the other side show the clamping mechanism?)

    Here's an explanation - http://www.highlandwoodworking.com/b...Point-Set.HTML

    Basically allows you to create/mark-out any size circle/arc you need....within reason, of course. (You'd clamp the points on a stick of square-edged wood or similar & then adjust the points to the desired diameter you need. There are also trammels designed to be used on a round stick or length of dowel rod.)

    PS- Is there a name on that trammel point? Such as Stanley, Bailey or Sargent perhaps?

    first one looks like a tool used to made a dimple in a structural pipe so you can fit it into a structural pipe fitting, and secure it.

    They aren't mine, but I believe it does show the clamping mechanism. Interesting on how they work, I've never even heard of one, much less know how they work..

    Blue, that's a very good guess, I hadn't thought about that and it could very well be what you say.

    I just invited the owner here to take a look at the ideas.

    Thanks again.
