what the heck is this tool set for?

I just picked up this old tool set at an Estate Sale, and I have no idea what it is used for? It all appears to be stainless, and is in a nice dovetailed case. No markings or maker name on any of it. It is heavy, and well made. Any help would be appreciated, emai me if you need more pics. At first I thought maybe for a Piano, but doesnt look like any piano tools I could find? Thank You

Re: what the heck is this tool set for?

You sure have me stumped. I have a guess but probably I am wrong. Maybe medical tools? I remember once I was watching Antiques Roadshow and this guy came in with a bunch of tools and one of those tools included in the kit was a saw. The rest he didn't know what the heck he had. He was real surprised when the appraiser told him he had a field surgery kit that probably was used by a civil war doctor. Like I said I don't know what you have but have to agree with you that doesn't look like piano tuning tools. I remember watching a show once where someone was tuning a piano and don't remember seeing tools like that. Anyway good luck!:)

Interesting. Just a guess would be tunning tools for a piano, harp, or organ.
