1251. A miter jack, used for planing and smoothing a miter cut.

From Gil Gandenberger's collection

1252. A counter for an old card game called Whist, these came in many other different styles.

1253. This was probably used to spread wires but I haven't been able to confirm the exact purpose.

1254. Cow kickers, these were placed on the cow's back legs so she couldn't kick the person milking her.

1255. A concrete anchor
