Meccano Indexes and Information
Welcome to this part of my website where 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
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.
Meccano Ltd. Patents and Registered Designs
This lists all those patents and designs registered by Meccano Ltd. throughout the world which I have so far managed to discover. This covers all products of Meccano Ltd. Where available, copies of the original patents/designs can be downloaded.
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.
