Fleutius, I wouldn’t know how to properly use nearly all of those tools. Amazing.

Yep, He only took about 30 or 40 years to build and fill that box. Amazing workmanship on it. Norm did a show on makeing one on a much smaller scale and did a Tour of this one as well. I don’t know anyone who whould have the Skill or Time to make anything near like it.
If you really like it check this out to be able to see it in person.

When I copied and enlarged the picture it looked to me like they are some sort of brad point hand drill bit. the round end on each one is a different size. Sort of like a forstner bit.

Remember that a lot of those tools as special to Piano makeing so a lot of us may not really know what they are used for.

daddywoofdawg,
Those are what we used to call yankee drills or speed drills.
there are a variety of bits and spoons in the handle (the fat part) and they chuck in the tip.
then the shaft between the handle and the bit works in and out (kind of like an accordion) as you pump it up and down the bit spins. (I have one hanging on my wall)
The bar across the top is a trammel …

-- Grumpy old guy, and lookin' good Doin' it. ... Surprise Az.
