    The one just to the right of the file handle "looks" like a knurling tool.

    I also got these 14 ??? Kinda looks like line up tools. They are all stamped with a size.
    One the bigger one the stamped size is the middle step. One the smaller ones the size
    makes no sense. The name REED MFG Co. is also stamped on each one. 1/4" hole in
    each handle. All are bored 3/4 of the way threw. Ends are not sharp so they can't be
    punches.

    The things that look like files I was thinking they look like scrapers bit
    they look to be soft metals.

    Typing in google Reed Tools Punches I found something that's called flare punches.
    Maybe that"s what i have...

    EDIT....

    EDIT... Again....

    Suited for flaring Type K copper tubing with water in the service line.
    Make 45-degree flares with pressure relieving hammer flaring tools for copper tubing.
    Hardened and tempered to resist wear.

    Wonder if they need an anvil ? Guess these are for flair nuts.

    Items marked RED are turret lathe/screw machine tooling. Far right one is a box turning tool

    Marked PURPLE is base holder for a grinding wheel dresser for a surface grinder, or at least it is similar to one I have.

    Marked ORANGE are brass center inserts for rifle barrel turning to prevent damage to the bore.

    Marked YELLOW is an internal roller burnishing tool for final sizing bushings and bores.

    Marked GREEN are Anderson hand scrapers for rebuilding machine tool slide ways.

    Doesn't the hand scrapers have to be hard steel? What are the slides for?

    The Reeds are "hammer flares" used on K copper tube as was once common in underground water lines from main to house.
    Type K wall thickness is more than the well known conical flaring tool will handle, but it's easy enough to flare with a ball peen hammer once you get to above 1 1/4 size. Takes a man who knows what he's doing about an hour to flare 11/2 with a hammer. Takes about a week for him to stop bichyn if he forgot to slide the flare nut in place first.

    Hammered flares are also one of the best reasons to apply a finger full of grease between copper & nut when making the joint up so you don't gall hell out of the flare and get leaks.
