Comments: The WWW is a wonderful thing for the curious! I stumbled upon this site after Googling a mention of 'Meccano Set 8' by Adrian Oldknow in an email. (The circumstances of which had to do with articles he has written about the Micro:Bit - another British invention I stumbled upon courtesy a friend.)
WOW! I have now reserved much of my weekend to explore these pages.
We are trying to reinstill an interest in 'thinkering' at our makerspaces in the US. It is hard to compete with electronic devices, but with resources like this website and the recent urgency here to reform our school system I am hopeful we will succeed.
THANK YOU! for maintaining these volumes for posterity and for inspiring youth to put down their devices and make stuff!

Comments: Absolutely fantastic website. I used to build Meccano models about 60 years ago when I wer'a lad. I am sure this early understanding went a long way to enabling me to become an engineer. This website has certainly rekindled my interest. Amazing website - keep up the good work.

Comments: Wow! what a fantatsic resource. My interest was rekindled recently when I bought an old shop display model of a bulldozer. I have cleaned it lightly and got it working, the wheels go round and the bucket goes up and down. This site is amazing for learning about the history - it has to be the world's most useful and informative Meccano resource - Massive thumbs up!!

Comments: This site is brilliant. Returning to Meccano after 50+ years I have found the engineering drawings extremely useful. I bought some bent and rusty parts and have restored them to new condition. I have been using the drawings to make parts I do not have for a specific model. It's interesting working from a 1930s plan. Thank you Timothy for making this available.
