Last updated 21st February 2017

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 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. 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.
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 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, 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:
My father was an avid Meccano builder.  Over the years he collected much though in the mid 70's to 80's he bought two set tens so as he could complete giant projects.  He worked on one such was a walking dragline crane, 38 class steam loco and so on. There are also a couple of types of Meccano geared electric motors plus I think a clockwork one.  As a child I'd remember being taken to Sydney City to Hobby Co when it was in George street and dad would buy extra things like Meccano clock 1&2. And so my father passed away a bit over a year ago, he collected many things Meccano one and always kept everything in mint condition.  Some people may know him or of him his name Hal Woodward.

I am his son Stuart and am now starting to go through the storage shed to sell a number of his collections and donate some things to museums, if anyone is interested just email me and I'll send my phone number and try this week to get photos of the Meccano in the set 10's.  The metal is silver with blue and yellow in two 4-drawer wooden boxes. Though he does have red and green earlier stuff. I am located in Sydney Australia.

For Sale:
A large quantity of vintage Meccano available as a job lot, smaller lots or individual parts.

This collection has been in my attic for over 30 years. It originally belonged to my grandfather and I played with much of it as a child. I estimate that it originates from the 1950's or 1960's. As you can see from the photo there is a wide selection of parts including many wheels, gears, rods, plates, girders and several quite individual items such as a propeller, a universal joint, pulleys and even a thrust bearing.

Some of the parts are in really excellent condition and most are good for their age, although there is also a small number of bent/broken pieces. I am happy to share further photos, of which I have many.

I don't know the value of this collection but I have seen many of the parts I have changing hands on Ebay so I am aware there is interest out there.

From the 1950's I was asking for Meccano every Christmas and sometimes I was lucky. Now moving house again and looking at items I no longer use (although if it doesn't sell I might take some leisure time again!) and found my Meccano dating from the 1950's.

It is currently parcelled up by the piece as shown in the photograph but I can supply a list of parts and any other photos that might be requested.

I believe the parts amount to a set 2 plus some additional pieces. All have been used, but cared for.

If you have a PayPal account I will accept payment that way. Postage and Packing at cost + effort.

This is my husband's much-loved (and played with) Meccano set - Meccano Highway Vehicles Set - 3.  It was new when he received it as a gift in the late 1960s or early 1970s.

There seem to be a few items missing, but we have taken the photo to reveal the cunning recesses where other parts are stored.

A wheel and the screwdriver are the obvious absentees.

We would like it to go to a good home and welcome offers please. email

Am considering selling my Meccano having now completed my second childhood.  Don’t really know what its worth.

As can be seen from picture it is a mixture of original, nickel plated and a lot repainted in green and red.

I live near Milton Keynes and could deliver within reasonable distance (far too heavy to post). Tried to be as honest as possible and could provide higher definition photos, answer questions or you could come and have a look.
