Picked these tools up last weekend and would like to know they were for. Brass one is 10" long, other is 8". Steel one has what looks to be RAVO stamped on it. Thanks

Just a guess
The wood handle one is for opening and closing widows the type we had in school
The one with the black handle is a nail puller

Thought I'd seen the brass type with a long handle somewhere, so would make sense . Thought other might be for pulling tacks, but wasn't sure. Thanks

Photo #3 is a fencing tool. Used for driving and pulling wire staples.

I agree with you. Even though they have the same basic jaw shapes a nail puller needs to be pounded into the wood so the jaws are able to grab below the nail head and there's no provision for that but a staple is above the surface and would be easily grabbed by those jaws.

The brass one is for opening and closing windows. The hammer at first I would have said removing / installing wheel weights but for fencing would be a better guess.

Most online images describe as a tack hammer. Could be used for carpet or upholstery tacks. Maybe even by box makers.

Jeff K nailed it. We had those long handled window openers for those upper windows back in high school, I have one of those staple pullers some where around here.
