Tool identification quiz

OK friends, I recently received some tools - I asked for them for some clips but along with it came some tools. In the box came an old soldering iron and a nasty pair of snips both of which immediately went in the bin. So, any idea what any of these are? If you know (and I genuinely don't but wonder if they have to do with sheet metal) can you respond with a quote so I know which is which. Thanks - I am putting them in individual posts for that reason.

cheers

Looks like some sprocket chain tools an old monkey wrench, a circlip tool, an outside adjustable spanner, and an alligator wrench, which I think I have a couple in a box of old stuff somewhere. Haven't seen an alligator wrench in years! They were the easiest tool to destroy a nut or bolt head surface I ever knew of! LOL PJ

#1 tool to adjust tire chains remove links #2 for tighten or removing lock rings #3 better known as a FORD wrench #4 call a Bull Dog the dummy side when tighten bolts on steel beams # 5 chain brake to remove linls or adding master link works up to # 60 chain. Most would have a better use as a boat anchors

To be clear I think you just identified Madflyer's tool lineup not mine

Thanks for the chainlink identification - that will actually be helpful soon.

WTF?? Looks like holdovers from the dawn of the Industrial revolution. One looks like a demented wirestripper.
Indeed. turns out for mine (not madflyers) the one is for removing a chain link and all the rest are for adjusting the teeth on a hand saw after sharpening.
