I suspect that #3 is a Monoline. I am very impressed by the antiquity of some of this stuff - how on earth did a Simplex survive the mid twentieth turmoil - in Germany ? I think the Rogers is somewhat contemporary because of the electric pot and the rather modern looking lamp possibly mounted at its rear. Overall the Rogers seems to have a used, but modern presentation . And all the fonts hanging on the rear wall; this Rogers must have been heavily used.

#1 is a Brehmer book sewing machine. I think Brehmer became part of the Poligraf conglomerate.
I think #8 is a ruling machine, could do parallel lines on wood engraving or intaglio plate, or complex machine ruling as on certificates.

Thanks for the info Eric.

I have made the alterations.
