Ordance tooling items listed

Here's a fascinating list of ordnance tooling. I've never seen early ordnance tooling described to this level of detail, including components of tooling for both casting and turning. I'll have to go back and look at adjoining pages to see if it mentions which furnace all of this tooling was purchased for, although I think I can guess.

-a great many shell and shot patterns, including those required for bar shot
-moulds for 24 pounders
-"section Drafts for 24 pdr. ship cannon" ??? (what are these, drawings or physical patterns?)
-wooden pattern for provet (Eprouvette)
-copper centers for turning models of cannon
-Etoile or caliber gauge
