    Oh, and above the picks looks to be a railroad hammer, the long head would help you drive the spikes without busting the handle on the rail...?

    Link to an 1896 tool catalog is below. Click on the tool name, then scroll to the bottom of the page for the old tool catalog page.

    The picture after the spider is a ball-peen hammer, two draw knives, and an adze head.

    Thanks to all for the information.

    The old "Treasures" rescued this time were mostly out side hanging on the outside of the black smith shop.
    Inside, when I get a lot of junk & trash cleared away are some good things.
    Hand cranked drill press that I used a few years ago to drill some steel with.
    Timber framing Drill -Complete set of pipe dies & handle - Several odd ball pipe threading handles & some dies to match.

    If someone knows the name of the little ratchet wrench in the picture please let me know. Thanks Pictures are the old building that I will be cleaning out and hopefully building some similar here.

    My mistake -- you are right -- it is a cant hook not a peavey - I have both and have always used the cant hook -- I find the peavey to be a PITA --

    That is an adze head. Kind of like a "sideways" axe, but has a slight curve, and the bevel is on the side toward you when in use. Used (for example) to flatten rough planks, or make a flat edge on logs.

    The anvil is a Peter Wright. English. Are there any numbers on it, should be 3 numbers.
    The anvil is marked in English Hundred weight measurement.

    Just to get technical (like the peavey comment) a pick with one pointed end and a flat blade on the other (as in your pictures) is called a matlock. The wrench is called a double alligator wrench.

    I think it's a "maddock". (Maybe another name for matlock?) I've also heard them called bog hoes. We used them for digging trenches.
