    The thingamagigs that hold the watchmacallet. Could they be used to keep leather bellows in place? The spring that activates the Decisive Moment Indicator?

    Actually, that probably makes sense. These were in the boxes that had all the developing stuff.

    This is what I think they are... hold-downs for plates/paper on a board used as a coating station.

    They could also be used on a copystand to hold squirrely copy such as loose pages or books open to the page you are copying.

    The fact one of them seems to have a wire soldered to it makes me think whoever used these before might have been doing some copperplating and used one to make contact with electricity.
