Timothy Edwards - Meccano

Welcome to my Meccano pages.

I am in the process of making this website more user friendly for mobile phones and other small screen devices. So far I have done the Manuals, Engineering Drawings, Patents/Designs and Set Parts Lists sections of this website together with this main home page.

I have been a life long Meccano enthusiast and I am a member of several Meccano Societies and also webmaster of the Meccano Society of Scotland.

On this website you can see pictures of many of the models which I have built. Some of these have several detailed pictures.

I am very interested in the history and literature of Meccano and have been involved with several projects which are detailed below.

Meccano Indexes and Information

I have lots of information for the Meccano enthusiast. There is a comprehensive seachable index to several Meccano Magazines, Meccano Ltd engineering drawings which cover most Meccano parts, details of Meccano Ltd. Patents and Designs, Meccano set contents lists and also detailed information on Meccano Instruction Manuals. For more details see below


Comprehensive Meccano
Magazines Index

This is a comprehensive index to the Meccano Magazine, the Meccano Engineer and the Meccanoman`s Journal. It has been produced by Timothy Edwards with Stephen Jenkins compiling the Advertisers section of the Meccano Magazine.

The index is split into several sections and then further split into individual topics to allow easy access to arcticles on any subject. In addition it includes a user defined search facility which allows custom searches on either the whole index or parts of it.


Meccano Manuals 1908 - 1981

This is a comprehensive guide and analysis to all English language Meccano Manuals from 1908 to 1981. It is logically split up into the various eras/sections, denoting when their were major changes to the Meccano Outfits and/or Manuals.

The following information is given for the manuals for each era/section:-
1. Overview of the manuals
2. Data on the manuals, including dates, print codes and details of the pagination etc.
3. Details of all changes and variations in the manuals
4. Pictures of the front and rear covers of the manuals

There is also a comprehensive search facility on all the manual models


Meccano Ltd. Engineering Drawings

This section of my website has scans of Meccano Ltd. engineering drawings covering almost all post-war Meccano Parts. Scans of 373 drawings can be downloaded at 300dpi. These are fascinating and give an insight into the development of Meccano parts.
