Meccano Collectors' Corner - Buy, Sell and Swap Meccano

Last update 17th May
 

The Editor

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!

I have an original later model Meccano set 10 from around 1978.

Condition is good to excellent. Looks like it was used to make a few models with some smaller parts while the vast majority of the larger parts look unused.  Some have never been taken out of the original tissue. There is some tarnishing on perhaps 30% of the zinc parts while the rest look shiny and new.

More pictures available on request. The set is checked and complete and looks all original with no variation in shades of paint. The only thing missing was the string that I have replaced and the small part tins are not original.

It comes with the full original set of manuals 1-10 with all 30 set 10 model plans. It also has a letter from Dinky/Meccano Binns Road to the original purchaser dated may 1978. This is a rare transitional set that would have been one of the last blue/yellow/zinc sets to leave the factory as they changed over to dark blue girders in this period, but it is in the later 3-drawer cabinet.

The cabinet is very nice with just a few light scratches. I can post worldwide from the UK.   Looking for offers around £1800.

Meccano No.10 Outfit Mid Red Green Set, in Wooden Chest, Guaranteed Complete.

Very good used condition.  This outfit dates from around 1953, so the red flexible plates have the much better slotted end holes.  Contents have been checked against the nzmeccano list for a 1953 No.10.  Any missing or broken pieces were replaced and it is now guaranteed complete, including string, bands, nuts, bolts etc.

The cardboard small parts boxes are excellent reproductions.  It is being sold as a builder's set, the finish on the parts being less than mint. However, nothing is missing, badly creased or broken. The chest is surprisingly compact but the parts are easily swallowed up.

Also included is a set of original Supermodel instructions, and a working clockwork motor, with key.

For Sale:
Meccano Set No 5 - circa 1961 with instruction booklet.  This set has been used but is still in a reasonable condition and in the original box which now shows signs of wear and is tatty at the corners.

The instruction book is complete but the front and back covers are loose.  The contents seem to be all there but have not been inventoried so no guarantees.

The set has been in storage for the past 50 odd years but would make an excellent source of spares for better preserved collections or the base to recondition.

I'm based in County Durham in the North East of England.  Due to the weight of this set, it's collection only or a meet could be organised for handover. Alternatively buyer could arrange carrier to collect.

Motorised Meccano Set 3.

This Meccano set is boxed and with all the original booklets and paperwork. There is even the original receipt from 23 Nov 1979!

The box is in immaculate condition and as can be seen, the set is in great order. From first glance, it looks like its about 99% complete. I can see that there is a yellow road wheel missing, but the tyre is there. I haven't checked around amongst the other sections to see if it's tucked away but I'm sure that part is easily obtained elsewhere.

If you're an enthusiast, you know that having a box and booklets in this condition is pretty rare and that any small items can be found cheaply from ebay etc.

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.
