A most impressive site - what a massive job that must have been. Meccano Magazine was a great "general interest" publication. I wasn't much of a Meccano user, but devoured most of each issue of the magazine from the late 1940's to about 1957. It's too bad that there isn't a similar broadly oriented magazine for today's young people. Am trying to decide what to do with my hard copies; it seems there is no real shortage of them, and the availability of DVDs containing the whole lot, suggests to me that the cost of posting a batch of magazines is probably not worth it!

What a great site. Was brought up on Meccano an Hornby double by my father in the 50's and 60's.
I will find this site very useful.

Golly, you deserve one of those golden spanners they hand out,
it is less effort for me to sit scrolling on the Mac here than to go up to the. loft to get the actual magazines.
Well Done.

When I found the Meccano engineering site, I thought how informative it is. As I am retired I am in the process of redrawing all the parts listed and bringing them up to date by metricating them.

I still have my large Meccano collection, but as I have recently moved I, at the moment cannot find my nuts, bolts & washers,However I am confident they will turn up somewhere. When they turn up then I will be building in earnest.

What a wonderful website! I've only just been told it existed. I found what I wanted from the index right away. Congratulations on producing a masterpiece of web design.
I have many fond memories from the 1950s of the Meccano Magazine and for me its arrival was always the highlight of the month. I can still remember my dear old dad bringing me my very first copy.
Treasured memories of a wonderful childhood!

Best wishes and thanks again. I'll be back soon.
