Line Mar Match Box Construction 021 Stamper

I found a Line Mar Match Box Construction Set from the 1930s, complete and with instructions. The box claimed the set made 100 different toys. I decided to test that claim -- one toy at a time. You can read all the posts for the Line Mar construction project at 100 Toys.

021 Stamper

Normally, I post the image of the toy from the instruction sheet at right. For the next three posts, you'll be seing the same image. Although these are all separate toys, on the instruction sheet, the stamper (21), wind wheel (22), and the fork (23) were all jammed together. So rather than spend time Photoshopping the images, I just cropped the grouping. The toy we're focues on this time is the one at the far left.

The stamper was a simple toy to construct. The only difficult part was connecting the two dowels with the wooden collar. The handle is most secure when the collar is centered over the two dowels. Making that happen though took some trial and error. Eventually I was able to position the collar to provide support for both dowels. Eventually.
