Where to buy Meccano
There are many sources of Meccano throughout the world. The International Society of Meccanomen maintains an excellent list of these.
There are a few general hints.
Shop around. You will find there is wide variety of prices.
Be wary of postal charges, particularly on heavy lots from the UK.
Second hand dealers in the UK are a very economical source of parts.
There are many excellent manufacturers of non standard and reproduction parts that are an ideal solution to modeling problems.
The current range of sets can often be bought from retail chains. Again shop around.
Get to know your local club you can get good advice there.
I would personally recommend two sources:
Ashok Banerjee in India. Ashok Banerjee provides excellent reproduction Meccano.
Ashok has a number of
distributors around the world that stock his parts and sell in local currency
and without minimum purchase quantities. These are listed on his Worldwide
MW Mail Order in England provide a wide range of Meccano Literature - plans etc.
