    First item is used to face a stone on a bench grinder. Hold it against the stone with the grinder running and it will true the stone flat again.

    Agreed, wheel dresser and what appears to be a cigar press.

    Yup still use wheel dressers like that on the bench grinders.
    Have the diamond tip for the single lip tool cutter.

    If you have a bench grinder you should have a wheel dresser. Well if you want anything ground flat and even that is.

    I picked up a wheel dresser for 25 cents at a pawnshop because they had no idea what it was. Pretty good price.
