The boomerang in the photo posted above does not appear to have the two spacers welded to it, as the originals do. This, coupled with that fact that the hole in question is not sized correctly, almost guarantees that it is home/shop made. Washers could be used in place of the spacers. Having said all this... drill it. :D

Clownfish wrote:I measured the pin on 4 Cubs and they were all 3/4" so I belive that my pin is correct and that my Boomerang has the wrong size hole. Can someone with an original boomerang measure the hole and post the size? I can just drill it slightly over 0.75" but I don't know if the pin is supposed to provide support and be a snug fit or if any size hole over 3/4" is ok.

According to notes I made when I made a sketch years ago, that hole is 13/16.

The second picture in the original post shows the back side of the boomerang with the spacers welded on it. Still don't know if it is an original but if it was it is definitely unused since it won't fit.

Here is the picture again.

Yep. You're absolutely right. Missed that photo. The mystery deepens.
