As each of us goes through our Meccano building experience, we learn lots of tips
on how to renovate and extend our Meccano collections and improve our model building
skills. This section is included so that we ban pass on to all Meccano builders
the lessons we have learned. Each Tip is numbered and, where relevant, the contributor
attributed for you to request further details.
The tips section is divided into Building Tips to help you build top quality models
quickly whilst preserving your precious Meccano parts for the future. The second
section is concerned with a combination of bringing your collection up to a good
standard and pointers on how to extend your holding in a cost-effective way. This
latter section talks about the use of M4 bolts which in their pan-head or countersunk
forms can be a distinct advantage if you have problems with arthritis.
