Line Mar Match Box Construction 091 - Wind Mill

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.

091. Wind Mill

It took me a while to figure out exactly how this toy went together. Everything's kind of blurry in the illustration (especially around the crank assembly). 

The tower holding the windmill has to be open on the side, rather than the back. If the back was open, you couldn't secure the axle through two holes. 

Once I realized that the illustration was showing that open side, building the windmill was pretty easy.
