What is it?

I've been collecting unusual objects for quite a while, and several years ago I started posting them on this site as puzzles for visitors to figure out what they are. Most of the items are mine but a few belong to others, if you aren't interested in tools there are plenty of other type objects that have also been posted.

For first time visitors I recommend this archive for a wide variety of some of my best pieces.

    Correct, thanks for helping solve this one.

    >709 A valve spring tool for automotive work.

    According to what it marked, it's for a different use, though I haven't been able to verify it.

    >713 - punch down tool for data/phone wiring

    Yes

    >708. Drill guage for aircraft drills.

    Nope

    >711. The sickle-shaped thingee that holds a globe in place?

    Correct

    A couple of hints:

    709. Used outdoors on a farm or ranch.
