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!

For Sale:

This is a size-appropriate and excellent reproduction of the rare Meccano Accumulator. Produced by 3D printing methods and real brass and other fittings.

It is an excellent placeholder for 1922-28 #7 and 6a sets and the Meccano X2 Electrical Set. As seen on Meccano Facebook groups and Spanner. It is non-functioning and filled to approximate the “heft” of the real thing.

This is one of the reproductions available from the Cochrane Meccano Museum. Note that one could be ordered without the fill and top left off, so one may put in a modern battery(S) to make it functional in vintage models Such as SM1 and SM22. The terminals are genuine brass bolts and terminal nuts.

I am offering these at C$200 each plus postage from Canada.

This set belonged to my father, which would place it in the 1940s or earlier. We discovered it in the garage last year when he passed- he had taken it around with him all these years. It's in its original box, with a removable tray, revealing a second level beneath.

He had clearly kept some of the smaller parts in non- Meccano tins for convenience, which I have left. There are 3 instruction booklets, one missing its cover- the other two included in the photo.

I am based in London, and prefer you to collect, but am willing to discuss sending. More photos, and queries answered, on request.

For Sale:
Offered for sale is this original and unrestored light red/green Meccano Outfit 8, dating from 1960. The contents have never been unstrung from its original packing at Binns Road, Liverpool, and hence are unused.

Despite having been in storage for over sixty years, the aarondition of the parts is remarkable. The carton lid, however, has suffered some storage damage over the decades, having lost one long side and parts of two other sides.

The original instructions books (not photocopies) are present, as are the original hanks of cord, wooden-handled long screwdriver and original unopened small parts tins.

There was a short length of frayed stringing cord with a nearby Coupling, Part 63. This frayed cord originally held three such Couplings. One of the unstrung two Couplings was found elsewhere in the box, and the third as-new Coupling has been re-supplied from my main stock - thus ensuring the Outfit is complete. All other parts stringing is intact with original stringing boards.

I bought this outfit with the intention of using the parts for model building. However, on delivery and initial inspection, it seemed to me that the contents were in such excellent original condition, that the outfit would be better left intact as a collector's item. As I am not a collector I am therefore offering the outfit for sale to someone who may wish to add it to their collection.

A very similar still strung Outfit 8 recently sold on eBay for £1650, but I would be willing to sell this rare outfit for a fixed price (no offers please) of half of that amount; £825.

This is a UK only sale, so no overseas bidders, please. Further photographs can be supplied by email, upon request.

UK postage and packing of this heavy outfit will be £20, or it could be collected in person from Leyland in Lancashire, for free. As a further option I would be willing to consider meeting the buyer at some convenient half-way point, subject to petrol costs being covered.
