Early Parts ID

I got these with some Model T parts I purchased but I’m not able to ID what they are. The four bands are about 6” across with a screw in one end and 2 pins on the other. The three parts with a brass tube are curved and may be acetylene related? The other 2 pieces with a bolt, I’m really just at a loss...

Thanks everyone!

The bands are part of a slide lock arrangement for holding a font on the bottom of a sidelight. Early T Ford had a similar ring but in a smaller diameter. You put the font up onto the pins, then the ring was turned rotating the pins to pull the font tight, the thumb nut would be tightened to keep it there. I can only think it’s for a larger lamp...

The snap rings are from the E & J gas headlights and were used to hold the Mangin mirrors in place.  These lights were commonly used on Fords from 1911 thru 1914. The bolts and the associated brackets fit the bottom tank of a Corcoran carbide generator, which was used on a number of makes. 

Good find!
