CUSTOMER NOTICE; Sorry the   checkout is now CLOSED. The next opening is planned for Sunday 5th November at 11am UK time, plus again Monday 6th at 7pm, until full with orders.

After 28 happy years selling Meccano, we are slowly......winding down, pending retirement, though on-line sales and attendance of club events will continue through 2017 and beyond. I am also thinning my own collection, which is now a substantial portion of our sales. 

Website stock quantities are continuously updated, but with reducing stock levels we occasionally get caught out. If we can't provide sensible substitutes we automatically refund as apropriate.  

Please Note; we can usually take orders anytime for collection at Dunmow, or at meetings we attend. (Please see "attended meetings") Just email me a scan of your checkout page with all quantities, prices and options shown.......

Recent additions;- 

Narrow 22T Pinions, Large Axle Universal Bearings, Heavy duty stainless steel Universal Couplings just 1" long. (See part 140c) and Heavy Duty M6 Screwed Rod System and Improved Cable Control System. Coming shortly, a new Universal Bearing Mount for Large Axles.


Please also see our Product Information, FAQs & Attended Meetings pages.

*This service is run mainly by one Meccano enthusiast (Me, Dave Taylor). We also sell at meetings and exhibitions, so I can't cope if the checkout is continuously open. Good notice is always given of the next opening date.

Disposing of Meccano? to top up essentials for our customers, we still buy larger Meccano accumulations and give a quick response with a fair offer.

Just email with pictures if possible.
