    Hi Bony, looks like you have the answer to No.1 (I thought it was bart simpsons hair brush).

    If you don't get a full answer to no.2 , You could try the guys at The Traditional Tools Group Inc.(I think you are on the right track for welding pipes in situ.) If there is a makers mark it will be a lot easier. if those guys(TTTGI) want to charge, You can try searching via the "Australian Woodsmith" who often answer such queries via TTTGI.
    Good luck

    Number two. Possibly intended to manipulate pipes into place for joining lengths together when laying pipelines?

    I don't have any further info as I've been asked about the items I haven't actually seen them.

    If you actually know please share, although I'd prefer not have hundreds of guesses.

    Number two looks like it was used as a clamp for taking the bow out of deck boards. The two pins would jam on the edge of a joist as the clamp pushes against the deck boards and the handle would lay across the other joist.

    At first sight I also thought that but the height adjustment did not seem to gel.

    No 1 is a hay knife
    No 2 is a flooring cramp for closing up the gaps between floorboards when laying a timber floor. The two pins straddle the floor joist and the screw bears on the side of the floorboards

    I'd find a use for #2 as an alignment tool, or for a particular misalignment. Supports on the distal end of the parts would be needed. Many other ways to do that, though.

    Tool number one is a hay saw.
    Just to cut big hay bales into smaller pieces.
