  • Joel Perlin Erector Sets & Meccano.   Large inventory of Meccano parts.   In particular, stocks the hard to find #27S replacement gear/pinion set for the 1929 Meccano Steam Engine.   The pitch of the 27S gears differs from standard Meccano gear pitch, matching the original steam engine gears.
  • Meccanoman Online Superstore.   Great selection, often offering both new & used parts.   Accepts new web orders infrequently though, so check back often.
  • Meccanoshop.  Prices tend to be a little higher, but they're always open.   Discounts on bulk purchases of smaller items like screws/washers/etc...    Copies of Constructor Quarterly are sold there also (scroll to bottom of page).
  • eBay.co.uk   Large number of Meccano vendors to be found on the UK eBay.   Keep an eye on shipping costs.
