Line Mar Match Box Construction 080 - 2 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.

080. 2 Wheel Hand Truck

This was another toy the illustrator took liberties with. 

Note that the dowels on the handles are flush with the collars, as is the dowel securing the wheel assembly. Not possible with the lengths provided with the set.

You can see there are two collars sitting on top of the truck body. They're supposed to be holding dowels that provide support for the truck. 

But the short dowels didn't extend as far as the axle. And the long dowels were simply too long, with a good portion of them sticking up. So I decided to cheat a little myself. The collars are there, securing nothing.
