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 4 - 6 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!
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.
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 mulitple 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, and the magazines 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 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, 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 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:
Replica of the 1950's wooden Meccano 9 set chest, with a lift out tray.

It is 20 1/2" x 14 1/4" x 4 1/2" ( 520 x 363 x 115 mm) and constructed from a 1/2" Cherry frame, with an Oak veneered plywood top. The partitions are made from Alder a semi hardwood, and the tray and chest bottom are plywood.

The box has inset brass handles, solid brass hinges and is fitted with a Squires box lock. The box and tray are finger jointed as in the original.

The design is half an inch deeper than the original to accommodate the Boiler in the base without a need for a cut-out in the tray. There is therefore an extra compartment in the tray.

I will include 4 replica blue small parts boxes and 6 hanks of cord as in the original 9 set.

Please contact me if you want more information or pictures. I will post anywhere at cost.

For Sale:
Meccano number ten set. 1969 or 1970 blue and zinc with some aluminium sprayed parts too.

Decent cabinet purpose-built to house all the parts. Complete as far as I know. I have checked all the parts and there is an extra 12.5" Strip Plate, but missing a 9.5" Strip Plate. Plenty of string, chain and driving bands but not sure if every link of chain and the correct length of string is present.  I believe everything else is there. The parts are little used with some unused parts. Lots more close-up photos on request.

This is a very heavy item taking two people to lift it so it will be collection only from West Yorkshire.  Looking for offers over £800 which I think is a great price for such a nice set. There are no manuals but they will be easily obtained on auction sites.

SOLD

For Sale:
No. 10 Meccano set.  This set is blue and yellow and in a replica box.

In addition to the standard parts list there are some motors; E15R and No. 1. Also a 7.5" diameter turntable turning on eight flanged wheels.

Meccano set number No.9 in excellent almost unused condition.  Comes in original box with 3 manuals covering outfits no. 6, 7/8, and 9.

I have checked all parts against the contents list for set 9 and the set is complete. (I haven't counted all the nuts and bolts but the tin is full)

If I am reading the date code correct it is from 1961. This makes sense as I was bought the set as "new old stock" in the late 60s or early 70s.  Two corners of the lid have torn and three of the green metal strips have been bent and then straightened but apart from this the majority of parts are unused.

£650, postage £40 or collection from Gloucestershire.  I can send further photos if interested.  SOLD

For Sale:
I have my late father’s Meccano which, I believe, must be from the 1930’s as he was born in 1922.  There is also a small amount of my 1960’s Meccano.

It has been stored in the box in the picture for the last 50 years, either in a loft or a garage. Therefore, most of the parts are slightly tarnished but could easily be cleaned.

There is a large number of plates, bars, angles, etc. and numerous wheels, axles, gears, cogs, etc. together with 2 clockwork motors.

There are also 2 instruction manuals (no covers), one for Outfits 00 to 3 and the other for Outfits 5 and 6. There are too many parts to show in detail but other photographs are available.

Large collection mostly in red/green in fair to good condition, also yellow/blue almost unused.

A lot of zinc-dipped parts awaiting respraying. Probably more Meccano than the equivalent of two No 10 sets (with some exceptions).

Complete 1980's theme sets virtually unbuilt e.g. Crane Multikit. Some Elektrikit and Electron parts, and some much older items.

The original packaging was discarded years ago to save transportation costs from abroad. Manuals, model leaflets, etc.

Sadly my comprehensive lists of what exactly I had are no more, but there is a huge quantity of Meccano! Much loved but not used for the past thirty years.

Buyer to collect from East Yorkshire or pay for courier delivery.

For Sale:
My varied collection of Meccano given to me around 1960, but had been in the family previously, so I would guess its age as 1940s onwards. Also one small newish modern set.

Was used extensively by me, but my son showed no interest so here’s hoping it finds an appreciative owner.  Paint condition varies from very good to fairly sad. Besides the red and green parts there are many gears, wheels, axles, pulleys and various brass collars, universal joints etc, also two transformers with electric motors in untried condition after years of storage.

I estimate well over 1200 parts.  Included is a wooden drawer cabinet, and a wooden box in which it is all stored.

More photographs are available if interested.  Collection from North Kent or Courier at buyer's expense. I may consider delivering within a reasonable distance.

All these Meccano parts are generally in usable condition although many would benefit from a fresh lick of paint, easily done with today's spray paints. This collection was based on my original set originating from pre-war days. I have restored such items myself many times but my interests now lie elsewhere and all this Meccano must be moved on.

For Sale:

UK-based seller offers a Meccano No.7 Set packaged under the ‘Meccano-Triang’ label, suggesting it dates from 1970/71. It is a 100% complete and in almost totally unused condition, save for some very light paint scuffing on Part No.52 Flanged Plate.

As may be seen from the photo most of the parts which were originally retained by dome-headed pins have virtually all of these still in situ, and the polystyrene moulded trays are in almost perfect order.

The manuals are in excellent condition, and the Guarantee Slips and cardboard liner sheet are still in place. The box and lid are sound also without rips or tears, although there is some minor inherent marking on the outer lid arising from the factory process.

This is a large item measuring 55cm x 45cm x 6.3cm and weighing 4Kg. Delighted to provide more info or photos as required; offers welcome, Paypal or cheque preferred.

For Sale:
A collection of my Father's pre-war and my post-war Meccano with some old manuals from both periods. My post-war Meccano is (I think) a second-hand no. 9 set which I bought in the 1960's. It's well used. The longer parts are stored in the tray of the original postwar set box (the lid is not original) while my Father's wooden box holds the rest. There are also some original tin and cardboard boxes, including a box for a mini motor (the motor has long since disappeared).  The large clockwork motor works but is rather rusty.

More information and photos available on request. Offers invited. Location Halifax, West Yorkshire, UK. It's too big and heavy to post so it would have to be collected, but I would be willing to meet a purchaser somewhere in between for the cost of the fuel.  SOLD

I have a wooden box, Meccano lettering is just visible in red. I have several photographs which I can email.  From memory, was purchased by my parents for me some 60+ years ago. It may have been second hand then.

The set is well-loved and used. Nowhere near perfect condition. There are 4 extra right angled pieces my Father made me, which are the very long ones. Useful for making tower cranes.

For Sale:
My parents gave me this Number 3 (old scale) Meccano set in 1935 when I was 8 years old.  It is still 100% complete.

I used it for many years as did my younger brother, then my son and later my grandsons.

After nearly 80 years of handling many parts were worn back to the bare metal so to avoid rusting I had it sprayed professionally with the exact colour to restore it to “as new”, so it is now an 'As New' 1935 complete set.

I have added a modern Number 4 set to increase the size.

In wooden box with original manuals and Magic Motor.

Located in Australia.  The seller will pay postage to the UK. Asking price is £750 (that includes postage.) email

Parts most dating from the late 30’s looking at the current adverts on the site but may well be newer parts mixed in as well.
