Comments: Just brilliant, this is what was maybe outstanding for more than a century. We really need to encourage others to visit this site. Only 8000+ hits in 8 years out of a possible few million Meccano owners. The drawings is little gems in their own right. Only started collecting 6 years ago. Mainly for constructing purposes, not into the real "collecting". Frank Hornby never meant a set to go on display but rather to develop engineering skills. I am 70+ and still enjoy it daily, and that after a 50 years career in aeronautical engineering. Never had any Meccano as a kid.

Comments: Hi looking at some of my parts have noticed a PAT NO 3869/14 on my nickel plated 2 1/2" double angle bracket and cannot see it on your site, have I missed it?

Comments: Received set 1 on my fifth birthday in 1949 and an upgrade every Christmas and birthday until I reached set 8. After that loose parts, mostly gear wheels to make sci fi vehicles with electrically controlled gearboxes. Great way to learn basic engineering! Thirty years later I was modifying old machinery to start a studio woollen mill.

Comments: Thank you for all the much hard work in creating this fabulous archive.
My Dad came home once with a huge pile of Meccano Magazines bought, presumably, at an auction. I have been a fan ever since. I am currently setting up my fourth Hornby rail layout!
I just love the adverts in these magazines. I would have sent off for everything but, of course, did not have the money!

Comments: A treasure-chest of information! My father started subscribing to MM in about 1923, and we picked up again in 1957. Sadly, he died just a couple of months after MM stopped in 1972. I got interested again in 1978; I still enjoy father's Meccano, Hornby trains, catalogues etc, and I add a few bits to the collection now & again. So this website is a great reference source - thank you very much indeed.
