You're all so close!

Here it is being used with a air torque wrench.

So it's an end swaging tool for locking boiler pipes into position?

You've got it now exactly Gloria. Well done. I didn't realise it would be so difficult. The tool is a clever one, when you rotate it using the 3/4" square on top the two tapers, one on the mandrel and the opposite one on the rollers means that although they are both polished hardened steel, the tool forces its way into the end of the tube expanding it end ensuring that it seals in the tube plate. The two smaller rollers at the head of the tool set at a steeper angle roll the excess into a bead against the tube plate. The man in the image is using an air-powered torque arm which is much better than doing them by hand.
Next one?

No idea but is it something magnified many many times?

Bugger. Clever Clogs has got near enough, Cochlea in the ear actually. They wave gently backwards and forwards and this is what moves the wax and debris out of your ears.

Staves is the correct name for part of it Bodge but there's another name for the whole bundle of components that go to make up the Barrel. They were transported empty bundled up as they took up less room and it's the name for that bundle I am after.

It’s something like stocks, stokes, stakes, but can’t remember which.

Not that I know of Bodge but I see what you mean, the two things have a lot in common.
Then I looked Stook up.
"From Middle English stowk, stouke, stouc, from or cognate with Middle Low German stûke (“bundle of grain”), from Middle Low German stûken (“to push, bump, compress”), from Old Saxon *stūkan, from Proto-Germanic *stūkaną (“to be stiff, push”), from Proto-Indo-European *(s)tewg- (“to pound, push, beat”). Cognate with West Frisian stûkje (“to pile up, stop”), Dutch stuiken (“to bundle, stamp”), German stauchen (“to compress”), Swedish stuka (“to rick, wrench, upset”), Norwegian Nynorsk stauka (“to whack, chop”). "
What strikes me is that all the languages use 'st', none of them 'sh'. So I doubt if there is a connection.

Looks like it's for working with sheet metal, but too heavy for a tinsmith.
