Line Mar Match Box Construction 090 Hoisting Machine

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.

090. Hoisting Machine

This was a fairly easy build -even if it was impossible. I've run across this problem before. The instruction sheet illustrator didn't always keep track of the set components. 

The kit only comes with two three-hole beams. The picture calls for three. Some of the other toys in the series use one of the flat boxes for the crank handle. That's exactly what I did here. 

The illustration also doesn't show any pulley detail. So I just built it the way I thought it should go. 

And, as you probably noticed, the length of dowels depicted fall between the two lengths actually available.  Since a long dowel is holding the winch's tower in place, I couldn't push the cross-brace dowel any further into the crank housing.
