A spring loaded wooden dowel is pulled back and released, striking and launching the ball as the hand crank is turned. Faster you turn the crank..
Kind of a dangerous toy for back in the day? I haven't actually launched anything out of it, so I don't know how well it fires. Many of my packages must also be custom created for the various odd dimensional profiles of the items I sell. Smells & Grime: They come free!!
Most items come from a smoker environment, but it is more likely the packing material will smell of smoke than the item. Get rid of the packing and you should be fine.
If smell is a deal breaker for you keep in mind many of my items come from attics, garages, barns, basements and everywhere else, so you may need some Febreze. With the fore mentioned in mind, my items may have: dirt, grease, oil, rust, dander or other forms of filth on them. I do my best to clean things up, but some things are inherently unkempt. So if you are the same person reaching for the Febreze, you may want to grab your scrubby brush too.
