Found in my grandfather's shed in a box of misc. iron items. These appear to be grips of some sort, like vices or pliers. The three on the right are designed to only close about 1/4" or so at the base of the pinchers. They may not be related to one another. The 2 on the right have springs under the handle and are mounted on boards.
Does anybody have a clue as to what they are?

    i have one like the two on the right, but have no idea what it was for. it was my grandfather's and he owned a hardware store, so had a lot of strange tools. i think it actually belonged to his father who was a carpenter.

    The two on the right are nutcrackers.
