I've been cleaning out the barn in preparation for a move and found the following object in a box that had some Alfa parts. While it may have nothing to do with Alfa, I thought I'd post it in case someone recognizes it and can tell me what it does.

It looks like a tool used to hold a toothed pulley and keep it from rotating, a much smaller version of the tool used to grab a flywheel tooth and keep it from turning. It was made to fit two different diameters of pulley. Nothing that I recognize from messing with early (pre '75) Alfas but maybe for the cam pulleys on a V6?

Called a "spanner" and as noted, use to grip externally-toothed nuts. Commonly used on various aircraft components. Might fit the rear axle bearing retaining nut on an Alfa.

It's a pin wrench. Various tools use this to hold the shaft so that disks or bits can be changed.
Not an Alfa tool.

Alas, there is nothing printed on the opposite side. But, given some of the creative answers I received I should have offered a prize. Then again, given all the diverse answers, it's obvious this little gem needs to be placed alongside the duct tape, hammer, and vise-grip in my toolbox for Alfa emergencies.

Thanks for all the responses, but I need Tifosi to translate FN FAL...
