Meccano Collectors' Corner - Buy, Sell and Swap Meccano

The Editor

Last update 10th April

New items added most days

This web site allows anybody to buy, sell and swap Meccano items from any period.  You can advertise your sales and wants on this page free of charge.  This applies to Meccano dealers as well as private individuals.  This site is read by hundreds of Meccano enthusiasts, so if you are selling your childhood Meccano on here, you can rest assured that it will go to a good home!  If you have any Meccano to sell, or are looking for parts, outfits, literature, etc. Read the rules below and then Click Here to place your FREE advert!

I reserve the right to edit adverts for space, clarity, factual errors, spelling, punctuation, etc. and to place them into whichever category I see fit.   Adverts will appear until you request them to be removed, or usually after about 6 - 9 months, when we've all got tired of looking at them!  If you sell an item, or no longer need it, please contact me so that your advert can be marked as 'Sold' or ammended.  All sellers' identities are removed from items which are sold.

Sellers please note:  All replies to your advert will come directly to you as ordinary email messages.  There is no need for you to visit this, nor any other web site to view the replies.

Buyers please note:  If an item has been sold but not marked as 'Sold', then it is because the seller has not informed me.  Unfortunately, I am not psychic and I am not going to continually contact every advertiser to ask whether their item has been sold yet or not!

This site is only an advertising facility and takes no part in private transactions.  Readers are responsible for their own transactions with other people.  Buyers should satisfy themselves as to the condition of any item before purchase, and always be wary of sending money to strangers. Sellers should never part with an item until they receive cleared funds.  If you spot an advert that you think is bogus, please let me know, along with your reasons.

Rules for placing adverts

These simple rules are mostly to help save my time and make my job easier.  I devote my time freely to this site and all adverts are free, so please help me out as much as you can!

Thank you for your co-operation
 
1 You just need to send me the text of your advert in the body of an email (150 words maximum). Any text in the Subject line will not be considered as part of the advert. (Some people try to put the whole advert in the Subject line and only the first few words get through!)
2 Please do not use all capital letters, as it means I have to re-type the whole thing.  Your advert will not appear in all-capitals.  If I have to do extensive re-typing, I may ask you to resubmit.
3 Meccano constructional items only.  No look-alike systems, and no Dinky toys, Hornby trains, or other peripheral stuff.  Sorry, you have your own fansites!  Reproduction and replica Meccano items are acceptable.
4 No links to ebay or other selling web sites. (Ebay doesn't provide links to mine!)
5 If possible, attach a SINGLE PHOTOGRAPH (jpg or bmp) of your item for sale.  If you wish, the photograph can be a composite of multiple shots, but there is only space on the page for one photo per advert.  If you send me more than one photo, I will decide which one I think is most suitable, and will not change it, due to the work involved in processing it, cropping it, resizing it, and adding it to the site.  So do not send me multiple photos and then complain that I've used the wrong one!.
6 Please attach your required photo directly to your email (jpg or bmp).  Please do not send me a link to a photograph album on a web site so that I have to go searching for it amongst hundreds of adverts and then work out how to download it.  Any photos not sent directly will be ignored, but I will still post your advert for you.
7 Please do not send me massive files over 10MB, consisting of multiple photos which I won't even be able to use! A single photo should be no more than 1MB.
8 'Wanted' adverts are for items which are not easily obtainable for a reasonable price elsewhere; not for common items which you could easily find on ebay or from any dealer.  Do a bit of research first.  I just had somebody wanting to place a ridiculous advert for two ordinary 5 1/2" Strips!!  These exist in their hundreds of millions!
9 I no longer accept adverts for Meccano Magazines, unless they are pre-1930, or you have a compete set, or a very long uninterrupted run.  Experience has shown that Meccano Magazines hardly ever sell.  The reason being that all Meccano Magazines from 1916 to 1981 are freely available to read on the Internet, copies of all of them can be bought on DVD for a few pence, the magazines are not particularly rare, and they are heavy and cost a fortune to post.  It's a pity, but I'm afraid that's the situation with these old mags.  I will however, accept Wanted adverts from anybody who wants to complete their MM collection.
10 Maximum of five free adverts per person at any one time.
11 This is an English language web site - adverts in English only please.

Some hints for effective advertising (suggestions only)
If you have more photographs available, mention this in the advert.
State the condition, as it might not be obvious from the photo.
'Sensible offers' usually means 'I want too much money for this'!  The buyer's idea of a 'sensible offer' might not be the same as yours!  A lot of adverts with 'Sensible offers' remain unsold and, I suspect, don't get any response. I know of advertisers who have changed 'Sensible offers' to 'Offers' and their item sold straight away.
If you don't know the value of your item(s) just ask for offers. You will usually get a fair price, especially if you have competing offers.  I will leave the price off adverts for items which are ridiculously overpriced.  Nobody will be interested in them, and it is wasting my time, your time, and everybody else's in publishing them.  This is in your own interest as otherwise you will not get any replies!  I once had somebody trying to sell a tatty 1975 Clockwork Motor for £220! (Real value less than £5 at the time!).  I understand you may not be sure of an item's value, so just ask for offers and take the highest one.
Be aware that the value of old Meccano sets is mostly in the boxes and packaging, as these are usually thrown away, therefore rare.  The metal parts usually last forever, and most of these were made in their millions, or are still being made.  So if you have a shoe box in the garage full of rusty or bent parts, it probably won't be worth the price of the postage.
Make the most of your photos by cropping out all the background from around the edges.
To save needless correspondence, you should state which location and/or country you come from, and whether you are prepared to post items, or expect the buyer to collect.
If you want the buyer to collect, you should always mention where from.  "Buyer must collect" is meaningless without stating where from, as you could be in Outer Mongolia!  As this is a UK site, and the UK has always been seen as the 'Meccano capital', buyers will probably assume that you are in the UK, unless you state otherwise.
 

Thank you for your adverts, and for making this the best and busiest Meccano advertising site on the Net!

For Sale:

This may be the answer for filling those long boring hours during the current lock down.  I have for sale a 1970s Meccano blue/yellow/zinc No.10 set, housed in an unmarked oak 4-drawer cabinet. It comes with instruction manual and several Meccano Magazines from the same period - these make interesting reading showing what was current 50 years ago.

Included are a lot of extra special and rare parts including extra set of yellow and brass gears, larger flat base plates, windmill sails and channel girders. There are several components that have double the amount of parts.

The set is totally complete and almost entirely unused, some parts still have their tissue covering on and none of the components are damaged in any way. None of the zinc parts show any sign of oxidisation which most similar sets do.

Priced to sell at £1850.  A full set of photos is available on request.

Collection from near Monmouth South Wales preferred so that prospective owner can inspect.

For Sale:

Selling my Uncle’s substantial Pre-war wooden boxed Meccano set purchased circa 1933 and handed down to me in the early 1950s. I initially thought it was a pre-war No. 7 set but subsequent investigations have indicated that this is not the case but nevertheless is a very large set.

Also included are Pre-war No.3 and No.4a boxes and numerous manuals, many of which I have constructed.  Understandably all of the components are totally mixed up through years of use and I can’t vouch for the completeness of any sets. I also added various parts, including a replacement 20v electric motor during the 1950s. The original pre-war reversible clockwork motor, however, still works.

Condition is clearly used but overall is in very good condition considering its age.

Best offer over £1200.  Because of the weight involved I would prefer for a collection from Kinver, Stourbridge, West Midlands, or a mutual meet within a reasonable distance following payment. Alternatively I could dispatch within the UK only, by courier at quite a high cost because of its heavy weight.

For Sale:  My late husband's much-loved and extensive collection of Meccano. He always claimed there was far more than a size 10 set. He used it well up until the 1980s, when ‘the big Meccano set’ (a Land Rover) took over!

Here is a unique opportunity to acquire my rendition of the Table-Top Blocksetter which appeared in the January 1971 Meccano Magazine.

This has proved to be more than adequate to power the model, which runs on two 'C' cells in the cab. Supplied with its baseboard, track and backdrop.

For Sale:

Very large collection of Meccano 1950/60s vintage including some rare parts, offered in a custom-made wooden box with 5 draws which takes 2 people to lift.

My father’s childhood Meccano set. He tells me it’s complete, I’m not 100% sure.  Box says it's Set 7 – I believe from 1954.

In its original box which is very battered as can be seen from photo.  Original manual and 2 x books of models ( 0-1 ) and (2-3 ) included.

5 x spanners, 4 screwdrivers suggests it’s more than one kit in the box.

Not a black background, actual colour scanned which turned out to be a very dark blue probably faded over time but BOTH my sets were that colour.

Meccano No.7 kit for sale.

In the spirit of “full disclosure”, this is a kit that has been unearthed from a dank corner of a garage ! I’ve seen enough antiques programmes on TV to have left the battered cardboard box and instructions booklets alone [there’s a No.6 booklet too] – and simply dusted off the metal components.  There is a little bit of rust on a few of the parts, and some creases in panels ... but I’d call them ‘age and usage appropriate’.

I genuinely don’t have an idea of the value – so please make me a sensible offer!

For Sale:
We have recently uncovered this box which contains loads and loads of Meccano. My father remembers playing with pieces like this in the 1920s/1930s.

We are not experts by any means so have no idea of value. There are 3 full trays, a motor, cylinder, chains, bands, wheels etc and tins with bits and pieces including nuts and bolts.

I have attached a photo. I can take closer pictures of separate pieces. The box has woodworm and is not in good condition but the trays are ok. Some pieces of Meccano are a bit rusty which I presume can be cleaned up.

We are open to offers on this and would like it to go to a good home where it can be appreciated.  email

This splendid box of Meccano was given to me as a present in the 1950s by a guy who I seem to remember said his Dad had given it to him. It’s not been used for many years, unfortunately my Grandchildren aren’t interested in it!

The box is 780 x 460 x 330. It has 5 drawers and is a little dusty! The Meccano is in very used condition.

There is the makings of an early Biplane in one draw.

The box is available to collect from near Bury St Edmunds or I could arrange delivery by courier at cost.

Please make me a reasonable offer.  email

Wanted: I'm a Parkinson's patient and my memories of playing with Meccano sets 5 & 8 during the 1970s remain fond.  As part of my attempt at regaining hand mobility/dexterity I would like to play again! Very much would like try a set 9 (unless one of you reading this could generously provide a set 10 at COVID Fire Sale pricing, but even then this could be too much for me as things are very tight).  Given my situation I'm not too fussy about the condition, just not too rusty please.  Nor does it have to be a 1970s set, 1950s or 1930s, etc. is equally welcome. If you have a set 8 or lower, I ask your understanding of the fact that I can only accept these free of charge because of the shipping costs I'll have to pay to receive them as I'm presently located in Asia.  email May
