Found theses old tools in a box of junk. Like the Stanley #64 i didn’ know what they were. But they were tools so i payed the guy a whole $6.00. The first and second pict. i figured out is a miter guage for 45s walnut great petina. The 3rd and 4th is a flooring guage seen it on Roy Underhill when he was going thru a old work chest. Notice the roman numerals. Fifth pict are for 22 1/2 miters. The 45 guage is stamped J. Varrall ive searching the net. the name leads me to England with very few Varralls in the USA. Also i should have used a clean coffee cup !!!!!

The very top picture looks like a set of dovetail guides.

For $6, it is a nice pickup of shop-made tools.
