Run away from that smoother, it’s a stamped steel frog variation that will frustrate you forever. It’s maybe a $5 curiosity, but it’s not a serious hobbyist tool.

The diamond emblem No. 7 is “Diamond Edge,” a Shapleigh hardware brand likely made by Stanley but they had more than one mfgr over the years. Looks good, but the hard rubber tote needs to be replaced as the horn is broken (typical on DEs).

The others look like one transitional jack, one skew rabbet plane, and one nosing plane. Of all them, I’d consider the skew rabbet first, then the No. 7 DE. I’d leave the rest to others.
