I think that they are both pipe cutters.  Do I win the cigar!

They are tools for removing bicycle chain links, and reinserting them. They work by clamping the chain and you screw the tool into the chain pin and it pushes the pin in or out of the chain link.

They are indeed for use on any chain (subject to size) to break the links. I used them many a time to cut chain to length (as we brought it by the roll.) for some of the plant we had.

I'm rather red faced now!  I was miles off wasn't I.  Certainly no cigar this time.  Its especially annoying because I have used a chain splitter like the larger one several times!

Damn, late for this one
 
I've used the one on the right a few times in my younger days..........not through bad cycling, just from building bikes at a shop

Happy days!

 Good idea Ron as I have no further use for them.

Is the one on the right a nut splitter?
Only a guess on the left one would be screw rod sizer?

I'm not prepared to have a guess this time (still re-faced from the last time) but I would bet pretty heavily against the nut splitter.  Oooooh that sounds painful!

I would say they are Pipe Flaring tools , mainly used on break lines  pipe for vehicles etc  and also used by plumbers for copper work .   As I do have one for copper work but comes with different heads depending on pipe size .

I would agree with Sam. Clamp copper pipe the appropriately sized hole in the left hand tool. Slide the  (right ) on to it and tighten it thus flaring the pipe.
