another weird vise (press). almost looks like a special tool for brakes or rotors or bearings?

boski - it looks like a polar bear in a snow storm!

Actually, now it looks like a I-beam clamp or hanger.

what does an i beam clamp do?

Looks like an old ball joint remover.

Or, with correct collars, a tool to make flange ends.

ball joint sounds right.

I think it is a riveter. Used for hollow rivets. Kinda hard to see the end of the ram but I'm pretty sure that's it.
Does the end look like this---

so then the bottom is designed to take collets of differing sizes

Looks like a rivet setter or an alien ray gun disguised as some kind of screw thing.

Open the screw, slip over a V belt pulley, with the shaft passing through the slots at the left. Turn screw, screw pushes on the shaft, pushing the shaft out of pulley.
