This web site allows anybody to buy, sell and swap Meccano items from any period.  People can advertise their 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. 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 - 8 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.

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.  If you spot an advert that you think is bogus, please let me know, along with your reasons.

Rules for placing adverts
1 You just need to send me the text of your advert in an email (150 words maximum).
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 construction items only, no look-alike systems, and no Dinky toys or Hornby trains.  Sorry, you have your own fansites!
4 No links to ebay or other selling web sites.
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, resizing it,  and adding it to the site.
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.  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 mulitple photos which I won't be able to use! A single photo should be no more than 1MB.
8 Maximum of five free adverts per person at any one time.
9 This is an English language web site - adverts in English only please.

Thank you for your co-operation

Some hints for effective advertising
If you have more photographs available, mention this in the advert.
State the condition, as it might not be obvious from the photo.
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 and everybody else's in publishing them.  This is in your own interest as otherwise you will not get any replies!  I just had somebody trying to sell a 1975 Clockwork Motor for £220! (Real value less than £5).  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.  The metal parts usually last forever!
Sellers of old Meccano Magazines should be aware that all Meccano Magazines are freely available to read on the Internet.  Therefore, you may find that the market for original copies is surprisingly low, especially as postage is usually costly.
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.
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:

I have a No.9 Meccano set from my childhood.

I don't know much about it, how old it is, or whether or not it's complete. It has been played with so isn't in perfect condition but it is in good nick.

I would like it to go to a collector.

I'm not too sure on its value so please make a sensible offer.  I am based in Nottinghamshire.

Please email with any questions or even with any info you can tell me about it.

For Sale:
1970's/80's Meccano Set 10.  Recently discovered whist clearing the loft of the house of a deceased uncle who was an enthusiast.

The case has a couple of small marks on it from storage but otherwise appears in good order (if a little dusty).  The contents would certainly not appear to be complete and some of the larger associated parts are not present.  Some parts are used and others the nickel coating is deteriorating from store. Though a good proportion of the smaller parts are still cased or bagged.  However on the up side there are many parts from the Combat and Space sets (including manuals and transfers) as well as many other unused standard parts.

One for the enthusiastic builder rather than the collector.  Looking for £750.

There are also extra gears and parts including a matched pair of helical gears.

Asking price is £1300, which includes all packaging and next-day signed-for delivery.

No.10 special build sheets and two early Meccano Magazines from the same period.  The original box was in a poor state so it is now housed in a superb four-drawer solid oak replica.

A set of detailed photos can be sent on request.  Willing to pack and arrange shipping at buyers expence, but would prefer collection in person from Essex.

Price £1950.  SOLD

Meccano K Outfit from the Blue and Gold period dated 1934/35.  This is quite a large set sized somewhere between the later 9 and 10 sets

This outfit contained in a huge red carton is extremely rare, I know of only one other example.  The carton is a bit battered but generally all together, the top tray is present complete with stringing card and there are some original small parts boxes.

Pretty well all the wheels, gears and pulleys are present generally in good condition.  There is an abundance of hatched blue parts, probably more than in the original inventory, and they vary in condition, but there are very few gold parts remaining.

This would make an interesting project for someone, seems a pity to break it up.

It also has other manuals from sets 2,3,4,5,6,7 and 9.  The cabinet is in very good condition. The drawers are clean and run freely. All knobs are in place as is the carved Meccano name. The paint is in good condition. There are a few scratches on the edges of the cabinet.

1930s Meccano Set Number 0.
I think the set may be incomplete so it's sold as seen in the picture. Would be good to add to an existing Meccano set to build larger projects. The set has been well used, however there's still plenty of use left in this lovely set.

The box is worn due to the age, but the cover is still in lovely vivid colours. There is a 2-page Meccano pamphlet inside, that I believe may be missing some pages from the middle.  There is a little box (as pictured) with all the nuts and bolts. On the front of the box is a picture of a boy making a Meccano Crane Set whilst a little cat watches him make the Crane.

I would like to ask for £50.  SOLD

Meccano No 2 Aero Constructor.  I believe this is a very early set from about 1931 with the flat wings painted in Silver.  It appears to be remarkably complete although there is no box or manual.

I have laid the parts out as they might have appeared originally when the set was new.  The parts are in not bad condition considering their age, a few ripples here and there, but very little paint loss.

The small parts box labelled "AERO 2" is full of the special aero nuts and bolts and some other small parts.

The set is located in South Wales but packing and posting would not be a problem.

I think this is probably a post-war Set number 4, maybe with additions.

After I took the photo I found another bag with 32 green pieces, mostly strips, and 4 curved pieces looking like wheel guards. There are a few nuts and bolts but not that many. I am not including the vintage tins!

All except the car fit into a box that once had a pair of adult trainers and weighs nearly 5 kilos. The car is a bit rusty and weighs 1 kg. The tyre material has perished.

Any offers? I live near Oxford and would meet half way for price of the diesel. Or send by courier at cost.

Set 5 Motorised / E15R electric motor / Gears Set / Super Tool Set / 2no Pocket Meccano, all from early 1970s.

Set 5 motorised: there are a few (maybe 3 to 6) parts missing, judging by the gaps in the trays. The red manuals: 1, 2/3, 4/5/6, do not include the geared electric motor. The cardboard box has quite a bit of wear and tear. Motor not tested.

The E15R electric motor was in full working order but not tested recently. The guarantee and the instructions are still in the box. Box has some wear and tear.

The Gears set has one gear and one bush missing. The instructions are complete and legible but pages 9 onward (to 16) have a tear half way across the page.

The Super Tool set is missing the screw driver and the flexi on the nut driver is damaged.

The two Pocket Meccano boxes are in good to fair condition and all the parts are present except two pulleys (& some nuts and screws?), however both instruction sheets are gone.

For Sale:

My father recently passed away and I found a beautiful old Meccano red chest in the attic.

It has 3 drawers and 2 lift out trays and it is stuff full with Meccano and books.

I'm not an expert on Meccano but I think its from the 40's or 50's. All the brass-looking parts seem too light to be brass so I don't know what it is. I think it would be great for a collector and I've never seen a chest like it before but is definitely original as there is a little receipt from Meccano, Liverpool.

Offers welcome and it would have to be collected from Bridgend, South Wales or we have a chat and sort out the arrangements.

Set no. 10 1970’s (possibly several parts added over the years) 6-tier box of blue and yellow Meccano.

Thousands of nuts, washers and bolts. Brass and coloured pulleys and cogs. Rubber wheels and tracks. Coloured parts all flat and uncreased.

Inherited from a fastidious collector and model maker but will be unused and wasted if a good home is not found.  All parts are original, but unfortunately there are no manuals.

Judging by other sets on this website I would be disappointed not to receive well in excess of £1000.

Buyer would need to collect or I could possibly deliver depending on distance from Milton Keynes/ Northampton area.

Red and green number 10 set.

This is a complete set in good condition. The original box got damaged so I had a substantial three drawer partitioned chest made for me.

The model alongside is the SML Steam Crane.  This can go with the chest as all parts except the steam engine came from the drawers. Or I can dismantle it and replace the parts in the chest and keep the steam engine, whatever you prefer.

This is a good opportunity to buy a full number 10 set and use it for building models rather than admiring it and polishing it on Sundays, because it is too new to spoil.

I invite offers for the full set and model.  I would prefer personal collection from Liverpool area, but if not I can get a quote for shipping in UK or abroad. It is really heavy.

Any questions or queries please email me.

Oct

For Sale:

I have what I believe to be a complete vintage Meccano crane with lots of brassware (there's a lot of small brassware pieces under the plates, many pinions etc), pulleys, cogs, gears and even a boxed magic motor. If you look at the image you'll also see some small brass pieces with hooks either side, one of the hooks on each is threaded.

The item is located in Brighton so can either be collected in person or I'm happy for you to pay and arrange courier. I would say it's well under 5kgs.

I am open to sensible offers.

Good home wanted for well-worn but not worn-out Meccano collection dating back to the 1920s.

Building working machines in Meccano was my uncle's passion in the 1920s, which he shared with me in the 1950s / 1960s, and which I passed on to my son in the 1980s/90s, when he made the rope-making device and home-made motor that are still intact (top right of photo).

My uncle made the cabinet. Some teak parts (bottom left of photo), from his collection may not be Meccano (they are not featured in any parts list that I've seen).

Here is a wonderful old box set of Meccano, very old, the box is wooden and has compartments, presumably from the 1930's. There are 100's of parts, there are also 3 motors , 2 being clockwork , one smaller one in its box. and the larger motor being mint and in original box (don't think it's ever been used), and the other is some sort of fly wheel with cogs.

The set has been well played with over the years and shows some age wear but is still a wonderful collection, in a really good condition. There is a quantity of Meccano instructions which, whilst quite readable, are in a 'loose leaf' condition.

The box measures approx 26" x 13" x 5", and is jolly heavy.  Happy to post at buyer's cost (to UK only) but collection /viewing is very welcome.

Dad bought this as a No.10 set, back in the early 1960s. He bought it second-hand, so I’m not sure what age it really is.

I’m also not at all sure whether it’s absolutely a No.10 set but it’s a 5-drawer cabinet stuffed with Meccano parts. There are a couple of motors and bits of a lighting set (note - neither tested), and God knows what else. I think there are also a couple of newer parts in there.

Also included a folder of No.10 set building instructions, and a green folder with “Instructions Meccano Outfit No. 10” written on the front.

For Sale:
Early Meccano Set No 4, leaflets & large amount of Meccano.  Box appears to date from 1930's, in complete played-with condition, lid is detached.  There are two leaflets with numerous diagrams, covers missing.

There is a very large amount of early Meccano (5.5kg) impossible to show it all in the photo. I've no idea if the original set is complete but there must be a large amount of additional Meccano that has been added as it doesn't come close to fitting in the box.

Can be viewed by appointment. Will pack well and post at buyer's expense.  Alternatively can be picked up from South Edinburgh, can meet buyer at Dreghorn Services on Edinburgh City Bypass if more convenient.

Payment by cash, paypal or cheque, which must clear before dispatch.  Any questions/additional photos I am very happy to respond.

I will accept best offer received.  SOLD

For Sale:
My father was an engineer and used Meccano all his life to invent machines which then were translated into drawings and manufactured for businesses he worked for - mainly in the food industry.  After he died, I found the following early Meccano Magazines in a box, which he had had since childhood. They all have covers and are in very good condition, considering their age. (Feb 1931 cover is a bit battered):

I have June 1929 - February 1932 (all months inclusive).  In addition there are magazines from May 1934; June 1934; December 1936; March 1938 and August 1938.

There are also 4 small Meccano and Hornby Trains catalogues and a Booklet entitled Meccano Standard Mechanisms.

I would like to sell them all, and am open to offers. Buyer would also pay postage or collect from Wellington area of Somerset. SOLD

Wanted:
I am looking for a Meccano No2 sports car, circa 1930, in red and blue, similar to the example in the photo, (used with the permission of the owner of the copyright), and which is of the same model.

It was not in the original box, but it was packed in an old brown cardboard box. It had the spare body parts and tools, small parts were in tobacco tins, not the boxes, seen upper left in the photo.

It was last seen at the Antique and Collectors Fair at Newark Showground on Thursday 10th October 2013. I had taken it for a valuation by a dealer, but it was sold by mistake. I would like to find the present owner and buy the car back.

If you have seen it or have it offered to you in the future or if you do now own it please email me promptly.  email
