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. 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 - 8 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.

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
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 construction 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.  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 be able to use! A single photo should be no more than 1MB.
8 Maximum of five free adverts per person at any one time.
9 This is an English language web site - adverts in English only please.

Thank you for your co-operation

Some hints for effective advertising
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 just 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.  The metal parts usually last forever!
Sellers of old Meccano Magazines should be aware that all Meccano Magazines from 1916 to 1981 are freely available to read on the Internet.  Therefore, you may find that the market for original copies is surprisingly low, especially as postage is usually costly.
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!

For Sale:
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.

I am seeking £1000 or near offer.  More photos available. email

For Sale:

I have a No.9 Meccano set from my childhood.

I don't know much about it, how old it is, or whether or not it's complete. It has been played with so isn't in perfect condition but it is in good nick.

I would like it to go to a collector.

I'm not too sure on its value so please make a sensible offer.  I am based in Nottinghamshire.

Please email with any questions or even with any info you can tell me about it.

For Sale:
1970's/80's Meccano Set 10.  Recently discovered whist clearing the loft of the house of a deceased uncle who was an enthusiast.

The case has a couple of small marks on it from storage but otherwise appears in good order (if a little dusty).  The contents would certainly not appear to be complete and some of the larger associated parts are not present.  Some parts are used and others the nickel coating is deteriorating from store. Though a good proportion of the smaller parts are still cased or bagged.  However on the up side there are many parts from the Combat and Space sets (including manuals and transfers) as well as many other unused standard parts.

One for the enthusiastic builder rather than the collector.  Looking for £750.

There are also extra gears and parts including a matched pair of helical gears.

Asking price is £1300, which includes all packaging and next-day signed-for delivery.

No.10 special build sheets and two early Meccano Magazines from the same period.  The original box was in a poor state so it is now housed in a superb four-drawer solid oak replica.

A set of detailed photos can be sent on request.  Willing to pack and arrange shipping at buyers expence, but would prefer collection in person from Essex.

Meccano outfit No.1 for the German market.  Overall in good condition - some parts seem never used. The set comes as I found it. I just put the parts in order.

Note: The label reads "Die mechanischen Wunder der Welt in jedem Hause" whereas the German Meccano sets from this period I have seen before read "Die Weltwunder der Technika in das eigene Heim zusammengebracht".

The set is located in Vienna, Austria. Worldwide shipping possible.

Dating from the 1970's, this is a 100% complete set with a complete set of original manuals, even the guarantee slip. This set is an ME- Motorised Electronic and so also includes a motor, battery pack and various electronic components. My late father bought this for me as a child, after much persuasion! It has only ever had light use by me as a kid, and then been in storage for decades.

All the parts are in very good condition, but the original box is a little worn, not surprising as it has travelled with me from England to Africa, Asia and finally back again to the UK.

I am looking for offers over £500.  I can pack and ship worldwide, or if you're able to, it can be picked up from London.

I think this is probably a post-war Set number 4, maybe with additions.

After I took the photo I found another bag with 32 green pieces, mostly strips, and 4 curved pieces looking like wheel guards. There are a few nuts and bolts but not that many. I am not including the vintage tins!

All except the car fit into a box that once had a pair of adult trainers and weighs nearly 5 kilos. The car is a bit rusty and weighs 1 kg. The tyre material has perished.

Any offers? I live near Oxford and would meet half way for price of the diesel. Or send by courier at cost.

Wanted:
I am looking for a Meccano No2 sports car, circa 1930, in red and blue, similar to the example in the photo, (used with the permission of the owner of the copyright), and which is of the same model.

It was not in the original box, but it was packed in an old brown cardboard box. It had the spare body parts and tools, small parts were in tobacco tins, not the boxes, seen upper left in the photo.

It was last seen at the Antique and Collectors Fair at Newark Showground on Thursday 10th October 2013. I had taken it for a valuation by a dealer, but it was sold by mistake. I would like to find the present owner and buy the car back.

If you have seen it or have it offered to you in the future or if you do now own it please email me promptly.  email
