At the moment we have our house on the market with a view to downsizing so we have been having a massive clear out. Among the items to go were some meccano kits complete and in their boxes - I was gobsmacked as to what they fetched on thieve-bay.

I had some Meccano, but somehow never really got into it - I preferred Lego. Maybe living in a modern house with fitted carpet in every room had something to do with it, I daresay the carpets have been replaced by now and bet someone found a fine harvest of tiny nuts and screws in the pile!

Who was looking for correct Meccano nuts & bolts?

This is absolutely delightful:
