NIce find! Great to see then all laid out as a group. Tells a lot more than just one or two that you sometimes see at a gun show. Thank you for posting them.

Top Jaw,

I did some approximate measurements years ago.  If I recall correctly, they were all >= 32 and < 45.  Time permitting I'll dig them out and take another look.

I only made one cherry, and got it a bit hard and wrung its neck off!

V nice examples there Kevin.

Forgive my ignorance, but what exactly are they used for?

They are used to cut the cavity in a round ball mould.  Not so much an accouterment but used to make an accourtrement.
