Spider Identification

I recently ran across this little lady on my garden hose in my backyard in Milwaukee, WI. She moved very quickly when she wanted to, but mostly just tried to stay out of the sun. I snapped a couple pictures. She had a small white spot on top of her abdomen.

Wasp or hornet home?

An attacking cardinal has drawn my attention to this wasp's nest outside my window. Is it an unusual shape? I can't remember ever seeing a "starter" nest with this sort of tubular entranceway. Maybe I just haven't been very observant. The examples I've found on the internet say that it's the distinctive shape of the Median wasp's nest but that's supposedly a European species and I'm in Toronto. It's about 3" from top to bottom. I haven't seen anything fly in or out of it yet. What'sthatbug is on holiday. The sooner I can stop wondering about this, the sooner I can get back to work.

Identify this strange clamp thing.

Identify this strange clamp thing. Here. It's black aluminum. It's pretty small. Just fits over my pinky finger. The upper left part there is held on with a screw. You can make out the rounded head of the screw. So by loosening and tightening the screw, the 'jaws' could grab something.
