I remember using the Eldi spoke end nipper BITD. I also remember the Park expander tool being in the tool rack, but I rarely used it.

The first tool appears somewhat akin to the Bicycle Research portable freewheel tool. Those were meant to toss in your panniers so a freewheel could be removed on the road. A stick or something was supposed to be scrounged to use as a lever. Obviously this tool won't work for that. It looks like the smaller 'horns' are meant to engage a cog. I don't know what it is, but my best guess is that it's meant to remove fixed gear cogs.
