Please identify reloading parts/tools

I'm helping a friend dispose of some of her deceased father's stuff. He was a reloader, and I have a box 'o stuff I'm trying to identify. Two photos, six items:

First photo, 3 items:
At left in the first photo below are two cylinders. One is marked "L. E. Wilson" and ".222 Remington". The second has no markings at all. What are they, and what might the second one be? In the center are two pins with flat spots in the middle. The one on the left is marked ".30-06" and the one on the right is marked "7 57", and it has a taper on one end and it's a little shorter. What are they? The items on the right are shell holders of a type I've never seen. What kind of press do they fit, and what are the holes in the shafts for?


Second photo, 3 more items:
At left below are two small steel things that machined with a rim on them similar to the rim on a cartridge, and on top a small bump. They seem to be identical. What are they? Then, in the middle is some kind of die. It is from Herters. The thing beside it threads into the top of the die, and it's hollowed out on the end. I've never seen one of these and I don't know what it does. Finally, on the right in the picture below are two similar threaded items -- one concave on top and one convex. Perhaps they are some kind of bullet seater and neck expander. Is that what they are, and do they go with some kind of die? If so, what kind?


Thanks. Hope I/we can help them.

Steve

The things on the right are shell holders....those are the only ones I'm sure of.

The things in the middle of the top pic are some kind of gauge near as I can tell.

The do-hickeys on the left of the top pic look like something like Honrady's bullet comparator buchings, but not quite.

You really under estimated the ramifications of the boondoggle you have just perpetrated!

Oh, bottom right looks like it might be a couple of drop tubes for a powder measure????

Re: Please identify reloading parts/tools

Believe the shell holders may fit a Herter's press, agree with the drop tubes too. I also think the tools are for removing military crimps.

Top pic, top left items (2).

My guess would be a case gauge for checking over all case length.

Some really old equipment for sure.

The top left cylinder is a shellholder for a Wilson trimmer

Re: Please identify reloading parts/tools

PHOTO 1 Go-No Go guages or case length, case length rods, shell holders
PHOTO 2 Berdain primer removers, Straight line bullet seater, screw these into the bottom of a powder thrower to change the size of the load that can be dumped into various cases, the right one will flair the mouth of a pistol case.

Those are my guess'

Photo #1. The 2 items on left I think are trim dies. Well at least the one marked .222 anyway. You put the resized casings in there and use a file to trim off whatever sticks out of the top.

Our forefathers didn't bury their guns. They buried those that tried to take them.

Hmmm....trying to figure out how those left two in photo 2 would take out a Berdan Primer....they actually look like the inside of a primer pocket of a berdan casing???

If I only coulda' seen into the future!
