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!
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 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, 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!

Meccano Outfits No.9 and 10 (and Prewar Equivalents)
To qualify for inclusion in this section, outfits must be complete in proper cabinets/cartons, and not just a collection of parts in a home-made box!

For Sale:
Large collection of Meccano.

This collection comprises two No.10 sets plus many other parts including a large collection of gears of all sorts, plus masses of couplings for shafts, eccentrics, six motors, geared sections straight and curved, tins of small and necessary parts, many spare girders, sprockets and chain, etc., etc. All this can be seen in the photograph. There are two cabinets. Many complex models have been constructed using this comprehensive collection.

This is a collection that cries out to be used, not looked at or admired because of the original packaging!  In fact Bert Love whom I knew and photographed for Sunday Times colour magazine of 23rd March 1980 admired my remote controlled dockyard crane.  Not as big as his block-setting crane but it worked just as well!

Estimated 45 kilos. Offers or anyone who has a good home for it! email

For Sale:  I have collected Meccano since 1960. All of it is the original red and green. None of it is in original boxes as there is just too much of it. In terms of quantity we probably have the equivalent of two No 10 sets, countless clockwork and electric motors and numerous gear sets. If you want to see some pictures let me know.  If you bring yourself and a bottle of Pol Roger champagne down to Andover in Hampshire, it’s yours for nothing.

Loads of vintage Meccano, from my late grandfather.

There is too much to list individually but have put a few photos as an example in the main picture.

Loads of pre-war parts, some in original boxes and some original instructions too.

If you would like more photos of the collection then please email me and I do my best to show what there is.

I will consider any sensible offers.

Based in Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire.

Collection only, as far too much to post.

Ideally just like to sell as a job lot, there are many hidden gems inside.

For Sale:
Some from my father’s Meccano sets. He was born in 1918 in Paris and I imagine they date from about the late 1920s.  Some from my own Meccano sets, received as birthday gifts in the 1950s, in Paris also.  These sets came with my move to the USA in 1980.

A large quantity - about 15kg for sale as one lot - of well-used Meccano, most of it in fair condition for its age, requires a good home.

This comes in a home-made wooden box with two clockwork motors and 110-120 volts, 0.250 amperes, anti parasite electric motor universal.

Please email with offers or for further pictures. Shipping is extra and I will find the rate once it has an offer.
