    Handles with threaded end. Similar to lathe tool handle. Thinking possibly of handle for molding scraper with interchangeable blades. Possibly shop made and pretty old.
    Picture 2-3. No idea. Seems it was used for thread or wire. Top knob rotates. One is cast the other is wood.

      The pieces in the center & right pics appear to be bow drills. Either a collet or individual bits in holders would be mounted at the ends.

      Thanks Ron: I found one very similar on eBay. It too was missing the bit pad, collet
