    The hammer is for making holes in hot metal, just put the bar stock over the hardy hole on the anvil and hit it through the heated metal.
    The picks are all what I would consider garden picks or for digging.
    Let me see if i can get out to my barn this weekend and take pics of the two adz i have one I use for wood the other for digging. Both are sharp.

    I think the pick axe is a miners pick -- used as you speculate in tight spaces
    I would say this is the proper name for this. http://www.ridgid.com/Tools/Chain-Wrench

    As I am able to go through the blacksmith shop, wood shop, harness shed, wagon shed & a couple of other out buildings a lot more of the old things will be found & returned to use or usefulness.

    AH the fun of finding Trash & Treasures.

    My farrier used to put oakum against the sole - under the pad, when he was shoeing with flat pads or snowball pads for winter. Just used the oakum as it was - no hot lead!

    Not to step on toes but the "chain wrench" is known as a chain tongs. I use one and a chain wrench, and several types of pipe wrenches in my work.

    You nailed it on the punch (broach). Lots of different sizes & shapes. Hope to find more. If all goes well some of the Stakes should also turn up.

    I can't use mine. It has a broken handle (about 20 years ago). Maybe I'll fix it someday, or not.

    Hmm. You might be correct. The tongs must let the chain go back through the jaw?? My chain wrench has hooks to latch it on. Looks like the principle is the same. Thanks for the correction.
