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.  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 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 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 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 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.
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 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.  The metal parts usually last forever, and most of these were made in their millions, or are still being made.
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!

1938/1939 Meccano Set No 10 in Blue and Gold.

Sound correct prewar cabinet original paint outside.  Nearly complete instructions 38.9/10; and cover for 39.6 and partial instructions for three additional books, all well worn.

The contents are about a 90% match against the No.10 parts list in 38.9/10 for the larger parts. I have not correlated the list with the smaller parts. The red digger bucket and electric and clockwork drive are present but not tested to be functional. I suggest that the contents overall could be said to be mostly complete original parts, no repainting, with some parts missing.

Most parts have traces of wear and rust, especially the gold.  The item is located near Harrogate North Yorkshire.

For Sale:

Has been played with for over 70 years off and on now sadly, no boys to pass it on to. There are lots of lovely old pieces here but I think not a whole complete set. The original chain is still present and there are lots of brass cogs and pulleys and some nickel parts as well.

The very tatty-looking manual has instructions for kits 0, 0A, and 1. The tidier manual is for kit number 6 so I am sure there are pieces from these kits included.

I am happy for you to come and view, also happy for buyer to arrange a courier.

Collection would be from near to Junction 5 of M27 (Southampton Airport).

I have lots of closer pictures if you would like them, please free free to email if you would, or have any questions.

For Sale:

Pre-war Meccano set.

The majority of the set dates from the early 20s.

According to www.meccanoindex.co.uk, the publication date of the instruction book was 1922-1927.

An outfit No 1 was added in the 60s. I assume the set included outfits 1-7 since the manual covers these sets.

Condition is reasonable; mostly good but with rust on some components.

The rear cover of the main manual is missing. I have several more photos which I will email to any potential buyer. Viewing and questions are welcome.

Located in Stourbridge UK. For collection only but I would consider delivering up to 20 miles.

For Sale:  Whilst clearing my garage, I have uncovered a large wooden box full of my old Meccano from the late 1950s and 60s, which I collected and played with for many years.   It started with a No7 set for Christmas one year, which just grew.

There are many, many pieces, too many to list individually, but I have photographs if it helps to identify exactly what is there.  There are girders, plates, angles, curved and 90 degree, wheels, gears, motors ( clockwork and electric ), transformer, rods, cranks, huge amount of nuts and bolts, base plates of all sizes, triangular base plates, instruction manuals, magazines, parts lists and so much more.  Most of it is the original green and red but there are some silver long girders, and a couple of blue bases. There is also a small amount of modern meccano yellow and silver, but not much.

I am not looking for a massive amount of money for it, just open to a sensible offer from a Meccano enthusiast.

For Sale:
I've got a box that I've been told is pre-war and I must say after doing some research my self I think it is.

There is a tray that fits in the box and I have put a cup in the photo so be easier to tell the scale. There is no lid for the top of the box and the Meccano looks dirty and smells of grease.

There is also a built-up tank carrier that could possibly be 50s, and a fire engine which also I think is from the 50s.

If you would like to view or give me information that you believe is wrong then don't hesitate to get in contact. Also, I'm open to sensible offers.
