Hi everyone!
I have a Meccano M.A.X robot which I have been trying to find a particular screw / bolt. I contacted Meccano customer service providing the details of it but they can’t help me :-(
Is there anyone who might be able to point me in the right direction to find a ‘M2 / M255 - 10.5mm 7/16”’ screw. I need just one and is key to the stability of the head.

Hi, I have a small electro motor, 8 cms long, 3,5 broad and 5,5 tall. Its basic Construction is painted Orange, and its copper-threaded engine Construction is housed in a green horseshoeshaped magnet on top; on top of the magnet the name 'Mecline'. I probably got it as a child back in the late 1950'ies. Do anyone have any information about it, where and when it was built, eventually what it might be Worth to-day. Ken.

Brief report to my question October 8, 2019.

With kind support by Timothy Edwards, other Meccano Men and specially the Club Argentina Meccano who did local research, things have been sorted out. I now have no doubt, the robot‘s plan has worldwide first been printed May 1930 in UK.

More detail in the nzmeccano forum
Rust Bucket, Meccano, General, thread „Robot Model 6.3 ...“

Many thanks, Timothy, for making this index and your expertise available.

Had "Plastic (Junior) Meccano" as a child in the mid 1970's, and loved it. Bought a large quantity on eBay for my Grandson to use when he visits. Thought it would make a change from computer games etc.

Needed some building instructions, and found your website, it is absolutely fantastic, spent a couple of hours printing loads out.

Looking forward to many hours of fun, thank you.

Hoping to find out the world wide earliest publication of „Robot (or Mechanical Man)“. Model No. 6.3 in the instructions 1930, England. But a couple of years ago I saved two subsequent pics from anywhere, first the cover of Meccano Argentina instructions 1929, second this same robot, same model number. One year before the English edition. Do these pics actually come from the same manual?

Please let me know your opinion & experience re Meccano‘s publication and model development process. Thought it were centralized in Liverpool. Is it no surprise, to find models first published and possibly developed elsewhere? My impression, Meccano Argentina has been an important and autonomous division.

Can somebody help confirm the robot model’s publication in manual No. 29, „Instrucciones Equipos Nos. 4 a 7“, Argentina? Or any other publication pre 1930. Do you hold a copy or a consistent pdf to give evidence?

Your help much appreciated, many thanks
Klaus

I am looking for mr. Roelf Falkema because I heard he is a keen collector of metal construction kits and knows a lot about it. Maybe he knows more about the following contruction kit:
It seems to be a a very rare German contruction kit: AUTO-CONSTRUCTOR (1). It is a box for building several cars and with a separate little box AUTO-CONSTRUCTO 3, with extra's for building a airplane. I have also found an advertisement from 1928 for the kit. On internet and I only found a sold incomplete box from Spain.
So my aim is to contact him and ask him if he knows about it
