Line Mar Match Box Construction 098 - Thrasher

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.

098. Thrasher

The thrasher went together pretty easily. The only issue was with the original illustration. If you look closely, it appears that the long girder has six holes. It only has five. 

Plus, it looks like there's a fiberboard washer at a hole that lines up with the edge of the base. Well, that's not possible. So the braces aren't positioned exactly as shown. But they still lift the bin high enough to clear ear the cross brace.
