The thing next to the Eureka, looks like a cable pulling clamp.
next pic, looks like a solder iron. with a can crimper? opener?
the thing with multiple wing nuts i believe is also a cable puller, but for multiple strands at same time.

Some Preferred Stock in Associated Telephone Co.  Wonder if these are worth anything.

Not really telephone related, but interesting for anyone from Columbus Ohio.  1930's newspaper among the telephone magazines I was going through.  The Columbus Dispatch had always been an evening newspaper, and a competitor, the Citizens Journal was the morning paper.  The CJ was printed by the Dispatch - until the Dispatch decided that Columbus should be a one paper town.  So they stopped printing the CJ and put it out of business.  The Columbus Dispatch became the morning paper instead of the evening paper.  Lazarus was a very large department store in Columbus until it shut down and sold out to Macy's.  Lazarus downtown was a destination - we would always go there to mess around before we went to the Lincoln Leveque tower to throw toilet paper rolls off the observation tower.   Good old days.  Now there's no shopping in downtown Columbus.  The Lucky Stripe ad is quite interesting - I didn't know that they were actually good for your health!

What do you mean by Associated Stock?

Ok, I understand now - you were referring to the Preferred Stock Certificates.  I will do some research on the Stock Certificates and see if I can retire early.

Anyone have an idea what this is?   There was a tag in the box labeled "Dial Pluse Recorder", but I have no idea if the tag went with his item as it was loose in the box.

It is a "Pen Register". It records dial pulses on paper tape. They were used to trace outgoing phone call number .

 I have also seen them offered as an "answering machine" type application. A wax cylinder recording instructed the caller to dial their phone number. The pen register recorded the phone number. I think it was offered thru stromberg carlson.

Pen registers, of course, are still around and now extended to tracking all kinds of metadata (ask the NSA...)

Interesting to see one that might have actually involved a pen!
