Line Mar Match Box Construction 078 - 4 Wheel Hand Truck

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.

078. 4 Wheel Hand Truck

This toy could actually be built with the pieces provided. The illustrator did cheat a little. The set doesn't have any dowels that will sit flush with the fiberboard collars on the handle assembly. 

I could secure the handle base to the truck body with dowels. It's a little rickety as the dowels only go a short way into the box. The dowel securing the handle prevents them from extending all the way through. Nevertheless, I was still able to come up with a close approximation of the illustrated toy.
