Hello,

Can anyone please help me? I have some of my father-in-law's watches, clocks and tools. I have been cataloging the tools and have found the names to many through Internet searches.

Would anyone please name the following tools for me? I know they are not worth anything, but I am giving them to my son and thus, taking photos of them for me to keep. I would like to name the photos of what they are.

I have numbered the pictures to make it a little easier.

Thank you so much for your time and help. It is very much appreciated..

Yours,

Lori

Any idea about #5?
A better pic of the tips might help. Plus some way to distinguish them from each other.

As it is, starting from the left, items # E and F look like they could be letdown tools but a better pic of the tips would be helpful. Without that, it's only a Wild A.. Guess.

A,C,D,E (E is damaged), G (G is damaged) these all appear to be Sleeve Wrenches, F looks like a winding key, but would need to see the end, H & I photos are to blurred for me to make out and B I would not have a clue:)

H appears to have a square end and might be a winding/letdown tool. I don't have a reasonable guess about the ones to the left and right.
