Tool identification please??

I am clearing out an old toolbox found in our garage and have found the attached items? Can someone tell what this stuff is? The first 2 pictures are the same thing from different sides - not sure if these things are related, but they were in the same drawer.

Thanks!

Based on the top 2 pics, my guess is it's an old fashioned hole puncher possibly for leather. You slide the piece of whatever over the bottom plate & hit the rod with the fat handle with a hammer.

Not sure how pics 1, 2 and 4 go with pic 3. What does the rest of the part in pic 3 look like? Looks like part if it is under your arm.

Good call on the punch, that makes sense no clue what you would need that for, but maybe horses/saddles or something like that....

Pic 3: No that is the whole thing....

Sounds like I will just use the steel as scrap for welding projects in the future....

Thanks!

Looks like a homemade jig/fixture for a specific project. I have made many items like that as have others. You never can guess what they are for unless you're the one that needs it.

It amazes me the the inventions (if not always safe) what people can come up with to accomplish a task.
