[Steel Tec]

Steel Tec was a model construction system by Remco Toys, Inc. and made in China. It was on the market from 1992 - 1997. It is generally compatible with Meccano using the same hole pitch and thread type. In most cases missing parts can be substituted with Meccano parts which are currently available.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Where can I obtain a Manual?

Answer: To the best of my knowledge these Steel Tec manuals aren't available anywhere now. I would keep watch on eBay and bid when another similar set comes on offer. You might get a duplicate set for around $10, but check that the set contains a manual. If you want to recoup your money you could print a duplicate manual and offer it, and the set, again on eBay. If you click here you will go straight to the eBay Steel Tec page.

There are two exceptions. Set #7091 & #7140 First is one of two Harley-Davidson sets and the other a Millennium Falcon set . For these manuals go to the Manual Index page and click the set number. .

 2. I have some missing parts, where can I buy replacements?

Answer: Steel Tec parts are not available anywhere, but fortunately most Steel Tec parts have equivalent Meccano parts which ARE available. If you are living in the USA try Lou Boselli.
Or try the 'Links' page of the 'Steel Tec' site and click on 'Meccano - David Williams' His site gives a whole list of suppliers around the world. If you are missing some of the Special Steel Tec parts your best bet is to watch eBay and bid for an inexpensive duplicate set.
