Right you are.

Hearth Toaster circa. 1800. Bread was placed between the arches; when one side was browned, the toaster was rotated to brown the other side.

This one had me stumped and even knowing the answer I still don't really get it, lol.

Finger Stretcher for the Aspiring Pianist

Hailing from somewhere around 1900s, this device is painful even to look at. "According to one source, Robert Schumann permanently wrecked his right
hand and ended his career using an early version of one of these contraptions."

A plumb-bob

But the threads on the end would make me think it's a sctatch awl from an old measuring tool... Many had them attached so you could make a mark where needed...
