    Default Tool Identification Help

    Hi all, this is my first post here so apologies if I do something incorrectly.

    I had the opportunity this past weekend to snap up a retired tool & die maker's toolboxes. There's an old school mid box and two of the larger top boxes, and I've been sorting through them the past couple of evenings and reorganizing.

    I've got most everything identified, but there are a handful of things I've never seen before and don't know how to go about ID'ing.

    I took some pics of the tools in question next to a scale, and appreciate any help you folks can offer!

    The brass handled tool is a screw starter. Pressed into the screw slot, it will hold the screw to start the threads.

    The only items I could identify were laps and the tool to expand them. Last 3 photos.

    #1 is a plug cutter, 3a and 5 look like hollow mills, 4 and 6 look like some kind of scribing tool.

    The hollow mills look like cutters for taking the heads off some specialty aircraft fasteners. The little stepped reamers, same gig, I think, airplane style special fastener hole prep stuff.

    Awesome, thank you (everyone else too). That makes perfect sense - the previous owner was employed in the aerospace sector.
