Last update 18th October

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!
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!

Circa 1960/62 Meccano Secondary Modern Schools Outfit.

This very rare Meccano light green set was an experiment to place Meccano within the secondary schools curriculum in the early 1960s, to produce roof truss assemblies and other types of angular structures.

It proved to be less than popular and so only a few examples are known to have survived. One example being in the Meccanoland Collection in Holland (see images on n.z site).

Interestingly the contents include 6 x 24.5" and 6x 18.5" Angle Girders and 8 x 9.5" girders. Also a large variation in strips etc. As the images clearly show.

The price is £260.   SOLD

Itemised set contents show Set 10 1965-1969 and Set 10 1978 – 80.

The above list does not seem to include Set 9, but I also have a full set of paper invoices detailing Set 9 (1950s Red / Green with 1970s contents) which can also be shared on request.  Manuals and guides included.

For Sale:
We are assisting the wife of a deceased Meccano collector/builder in selling the collection, which consists of approximately 10 models including the one in the photograph, all built to a good standard.

There are approximately 200 sets, most are fairly common, but there are a few less common sets such as a 4EL. There are tens of thousands of spare parts, most are fairly common parts but there are some such as long girders and bevel gears.

We can send photographs, but please allow a few days because I have to go to where the collection is stored in East Yorkshire.

Please email me with your requirements. For the models, we are asking for offers, but for the sets and parts, the prices will probably be less than on auction sites.

In the early 1960s my father bought me the basis of the accumulation in the photograph second hand. In the 1980s, with two boys of my own, I carefully rubbed down many of the slightly rusted parts and resprayed them, adding more second hand and some new parts. Unfortunately my sons weren’t interested and it was all consigned to the loft but we now want to move house. The condition is variable but it is a treasure trove of scarcer parts including one electric and two clockwork motors and a number of propeller blades. There is a fair quantity of brass parts including many gear wheels.

These were left to me by my uncle but as I’m not a Meccano addict I'd like to sell them on to a good home.

There are tons of parts but some could be missing and others could’ve found their way into the wrong box! Hence, it’s better if someone bought all 7 boxes.

Various 1950s tin boxes containing Meccano nuts, bolts, rubber bands, are included. Set 4a has 2 small clockwork motors, Set 6a one big 'un! More photos available.

For Sale:
No 6 set.  Owned from new by my late father-in-law from the early 1950s.

He was bought it then told not to use it unless on very special occasions, and as a result all but a few parts are unused, especially as he was at boarding school most of the time.

I’m no Meccano expert so some of the parts shown in the photo may have been collected from other sets but they are of the same unused standard.

Box and yellow panels (with parts still strung) are scuffed but present. Happy to take any more photos and send.  Item in Exeter.

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.
