CUSTOMER NOTICE; Sorry the checkout is now closed as we are having a summer break, but we RE-OPEN on Sunday 20th of August at 11am UK time. and again the next day at 7pm for a short period. The provisional next date is Sunday 17th September.

After 28 happy years selling Meccano, we are slowly winding down, pending retirement. On-line sales will continue through 2017 and probably beyond.  I'm also thinning my own collection, which is now a substantial portion of our sales. We plan to attend our usual venues during 2017 and may continue selling a core range of our own compatibles for a period beyond, until its all gone. 

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.

About Us

Hello fellow Meccano enthusiasts!
I'm Dave Taylor and MECCANOMAN is a small family business operating from Great Dunmow in Essex, England since 1989. I'm ably assisted by Girl Friday & Wife, Marilyn, the better looking half of our team at Meccano events. She is also responsible for the Post Office and Bank runs, and a thousand other vital jobs (like providing regular caffeine injections!)

Son Ian is the technical wizard behind our websites, MECCANOMAN & MECCANOSCENE and generally helps with technical support (ie he mends the computers and shows me which buttons to press).

I've been a Meccano enthusiast all my life (admittedly with the usual dormant period in the middle). The endless fascination with Meccano helped me enormously in my later life of engineering and building design, so I'm now trying to give something back to the hobby. We primarily supply Meccano and compatable products to enthusiasts and collectors as well as for educational, industrial and R&D uses.

We believe our inventory of Meccano & compatables to be by far the widest anywhere in the World and we work tirelessly to keep it ALL in stock and sell to you at AFFORDABLE prices. We maintain large stocks of used Meccano and supply products from Meccano Toys), Ashok Banerjee, Metallus, and other specialists, together with items we commission ourselves. Not only can we supply virtually anything you could ever want, we can also do it in a variety of finishes!

I hope you enjoy browsing our website and look forward to hearing from you, or maybe meeting you at one of our many UK selling venues.

Best Regards
Dave Taylor
