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?

Regards David

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. :D

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!

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.

Factual, interesting, and compelling to the enthusiast, what a lot of effort and a could not be beaten record of the ephemera of the Meccano factory. Just now checking my collection against the definitive list.

Well done and much appreciated.

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.
