What's this all about?

This page allows you to create your own documents within the NZMeccano web site, for all to see, and of course to read the documents created by others!

I have no idea how many different uses there might be for this, but some of the ones that come to mind include Model plans, Hints and Tips, Opinions, Reviews, News about Meccano... there must be many other categories...

This is one of those documents, to show what can be done...

Anyone can read the documents that are created, but you must log in to create a new document or edit one you've already written. This is purely to ensure that we have some control to stop the site being abused by lunatics writing spam, or writing something that might get us into trouble for whatever reason. If you have already logged in to the "Meccano Wanted" or "Gallery" section of this website, that login will let you in here too.

If you don't yet have a user name for this page, create one by clicking on this paragraph.

Please have a go -- read some of the documents listed below or log in and write some new ones for everyone else to read!

Does anyone know the dimensions of old part number 310 Bobbin , (new part number 181). I have none and would like to make a couple on the lathe or by 3D printing.

I have a No.7 seven set from the late 1920s. The 1929 4-7 Manual has full instructions for all models in the 4-6 range, but many of the No.7 models have a picture and an invitation to write to Binns Rd for a full copy of the instructions for 3d. Does anyone know where any of these instructions might be obtained?

Hi Diane
I have a scanned copy of the 0530 instructions. If you email me at meccano@telstra.com I could send you a PDF copy.
Regards
Mike

Hi again Stedman
In the gallery section there is a 1948 manual for a 1a set. Since 1a converts 1 to 2, the models in it are for the No.2 set.

Hi Stedman,
I would look at the manuals in the gallery section of this website. I could not see a No 2 set among the manuals available for the period. If you check the instructions for a No 2 set from 1970 you would be able to build any of those and in those books they use exploded diagrams instead of written instructions. Many of the higher numbered manuals also have a page or two of instructions for simpler models.
