Question about Toys

1 Answer

Hi, Our little boy received a Meccano set for Christmas; #0261 Mechanical 2, ages 4+, 10 Models. The instruction manual only covers 5 out of 10. We checked on the web but the downloadable manual is exactly the same. We struggle with the instructions on the 5 models covered but I wouldn't even try on one without instructions. They say 4+ ; I think that means the number of people required to assemble. Do you know where we can track down the instructions for the remaining 5 models not covered?

I have found a downloadable .pdf manual for the set.

Click this link to download:

Kindly ignore if this is the same manual which you have already downloaded.

Alternately, you can contact the manufacturer's customer support by clicking this link and check whether they can provide you the instructions for the remaining five models.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using FixYa.

We need instructions for the Meccano Motorized 3 #0262 set which is for 5+. The instructions in the box have plans for 5 of the 10 models pictured. But we want instructions for the other 5 pictures....

This is from Meccano:
Left click before "http" on above link, holding left mouse button in drag the cursor past "pdf" and release the left mouse button. The whole link will be highlighted. Right click anywhere on the highlighted portion. Select "copy" from the box. Right click in the address bar at the top of your screen. Select "paste" from the box and press "enter"
This will download the manual to your computer.
To view the manual you will need a viewer from Adobe. If you dont have it download and install before downloading the manual. Download the viewer here:
and install.
Remember to save your manual to the hard drive after downloading. With the manual displayed on your screen you will see the "save" icon button at the top left of your screen next to the icon that looks like a printer.

Instructions for the other 5 models on set # 760262 - shows 10 models, but only has instructions for 5 / Are there instructions for the other 5 available somewhere?

I found a downloadable copy of the instruction book on the Meccano site. It looks like it has all 10 in it. But on further inspection, it looks like it only has 5 models...each printed twice. I am guessing there is a mistake on their instruction sheet. They think they printed 10 models but actually printed the first 5 twice. They have an email address for customer service at their website . I hope this helps
