ok pity the attachment is confusing but this is actually so easy-my dad gave it to me to solve when i was around 9. move the horizonal stick to the right and then move the top left sick down to the bottom right.
as a result the top right stick becomes the new stem of the shovel.

Ehem, no one said the shovel had to remain intact, I say to just light two of the matches and leave them near the red ends of the other two. Then the dust is there all alone.

This really is simple -- you just move the horizontal stick up to the top, and then move the shovel handle stick up on top of it. Voila -- the shovel is upside down, and the dust falls out!
The drawing below is the best I could do with this word processor.

The drawing on my earlier post doesn't look the way I originally configured it, but you can get the idea if you just follow the instructions and draw it out on paper.

that does not work ... that way the dust stays on the shovel

just switch the top two sticks, as if the shovel was turned over. And it did'nt say you couldn't move them at the same time.

OKAY THIS IS CHEATING! THIS IS NO FREAKEN WAY THAT IS THE ANSWER!!! BECAUSE IF IT WAS ONE STICK WOULD NOT BE THERE SO YOU CHEATED!

I don't see how it's cheating. I think it's a good puzzle. The only way you can cheat with these is to do something that you said you couldn't, which makes the solution perfectly good. :)

My gifted teacher gave me a riddle similar to this except it was a goal post and you had to get a quater out of the middle.
