    Those are mostly car tools and parts, I'm not too savy in that tool department.
    I'm more the carpenter, gardner, plumber, electrician type.

    Okay since we're giving the answers out:

    Yes. 3/8" ratchet handle.(maybe 1/2"..hard to tell from the angle of the pic, but the handle doesn't look thick enough for that size..)

    Yes. Dial calipers. For measuring inside and outside dimensions.

    Yes. Holley 4 barrel 650 carburetor (not used in late model production since fuel-injection became the norm)

    And Yes. Water pump for a Ford V-6 with serpentine belt drive...thus this comment: The last one fits a pizza ship. Ooops, meant 'piece of shit'...

    I was told when I began to do plumbing you only need to know 3 things:
    1. Sh*t flows downhill.
    2.The boss is an SOB.
    3. Payday is Friday.

    Think you meant handy around the house. For some things, yes. I'm a ninja-samurai with knives and well balanced blunt objects. Not where I learned it, but I can do all but juggle knives.

    Yup.

    1. socket wrench
    2. caliper
    3. carburator
    4. not sure about this one

    I've worked on with and on these my whole life. I'm handy around the house and can fix just about anything I can take apart, even computer hardware and software.

    I was doing my own car maintenance before fuel injection was even close to being the norm, so the Holley carb brought back some nice memories. My first car had a Holley 650 double-pumper.

    Saved up for months, special ordered from Summit racing for my 750...remember kicking in the back jets and watching the gas gauge drop...learned the hard way about the need for a full roller cam.

    I'm terrible when it comes to working with my hands (or any other manual jobs). But, I'd love to be good at such things. I was thinking about taking some courses, but couldn't find such classes.
