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 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 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.
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 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, and the magazines 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.
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 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.  The metal parts usually last forever, and most of these were made in their millions, or are still being made.
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!

The boxes are worn, the lid of set 8 is not complete and has some damage, the lift out tray is missing. The contents appear to have not been used much.

For Sale:
Meccano set number No.9 in excellent almost unused condition.  Comes in original box with 3 manuals covering outfits no. 6, 7/8, and 9.

I have checked all parts against the contents list for set 9 and the set is complete. (I haven't counted all the nuts and bolts but the tin is full)

If I am reading the date code correct it is from 1961. This makes sense as I was bought the set as "new old stock" in the late 60s or early 70s.  Two corners of the lid have torn and three of the green metal strips have been bent and then straightened but apart from this the majority of parts are unused.

£650, postage £40 or collection from Gloucestershire.  I can send further photos if interested.  SOLD

For Sale:
I have my late father’s Meccano which, I believe, must be from the 1930’s as he was born in 1922.  There is also a small amount of my 1960’s Meccano.

It has been stored in the box in the picture for the last 50 years, either in a loft or a garage. Therefore, most of the parts are slightly tarnished but could easily be cleaned.

There is a large number of plates, bars, angles, etc. and numerous wheels, axles, gears, cogs, etc. together with 2 clockwork motors.

There are also 2 instruction manuals (no covers), one for Outfits 00 to 3 and the other for Outfits 5 and 6. There are too many parts to show in detail but other photographs are available.

Open to sensible offers.  email or phone 01384 561334.

For Sale:

UK seller offers a Meccano No.1 Set dating from 1921, in a complete and unused state, save for 1 of Part No.3 (3-1/2” Perforated Strip) which is missing.

As may be seen from the photo some parts are still in the original wrappings, some of the nickel items remain wire-bound and the hank of cord has been unopened. Each of the pulleys is carded as originally packed. Even the original packing slip dated September 1921 still included.

It should however be noted that the flanged nickel plates do exhibit some light corrosion marks, in line with Meccano plating quality of this vintage.

The manual is also in excellent condition, although there is a 1” horizontal tear on the front cover only.

For Sale:
A collection of my Father's pre-war and my post-war Meccano with some old manuals from both periods. My post-war Meccano is (I think) a second-hand no. 9 set which I bought in the 1960's.

There are also some original tin and cardboard boxes, including a box for a mini motor (the motor has long since disappeared).  The large clockwork motor works but is rather rusty.

More information and photos available on request. Offers invited. Location Halifax, West Yorkshire, UK. It's too big and heavy to post so it would have to be collected, but I would be willing to meet a purchaser somewhere in between for the cost of the fuel.  SOLD

For Sale:
A huge accumulation of mainly red and green Meccano. The entire lot weighs in at over 135 kilos and consists of loose parts and built-up models. The parts are a mixture of original used and refurbished pieces which have had very little use. In the collection there are 24 Meccano clockwork motors - all working, many in boxes. The built models consist of a clockwork powered Ferris Wheel (36" tall), a dockside crane about the same height, a twin cylinder clockwork powered horizontal steam engine and a single cylinder one (25" and 20" long). There are also 22 lorries all to the same scale and between 17" and 36" long! I would imagine all the parts would constitute between six and eight No.8 sets.

Due to the sheer bulk and weight of this lot it is collection only and you would need a small van to shift it! Also included is about 9kg of earlier zinc plated pieces. Further details ring 01603 612789 or email. My asking price is £1200 or would consider a swap for 1950s Dinky toys to restore.

For Sale:
My parents gave me this Number 3 (old scale) Meccano set in 1935 when I was 8 years old.  It is still 100% complete.

I used it for many years as did my younger brother, then my son and later my grandsons.

After nearly 80 years of handling many parts were worn back to the bare metal so to avoid rusting I had it sprayed professionally with the exact colour to restore it to “as new”, so it is now an 'As New' 1935 complete set.

I have added a modern Number 4 set to increase the size.

In wooden box with original manuals and Magic Motor.

Located in Australia.  Offers please. email
