MY ERECTOR PAGE    Web Main Page





I have been collecting Erector sets for several years. And now I am ready to sell the collection, the entire room full, for about $10,000. Contact me at this e-mail address to find out more.




This is my 4 1/2 set that I got for Christmas about 1947. The parts and manual are original except the wind up motor. I got the box, motor,  and parts can from Elmer Wagner; and the panels are reproductions made by Brian Johnson. This set withstood much abuse; as from fire, explosions, drop from model airplanes, and use as components to dam a creek. I got, and still get, fantastic play value from the set. I am currently building all the 4 1/2 models.


Models that I have built.

Robot Models The first "robot" model was called a "doll"

3 1/2 Set Models These models for the redesigned set are spectacular.

The Coal Loader This is the ultimate Erector Model

No 4 Models These are models built with a Sears No 4 set from around 1938.

Models for parts DN and DU These models use parts DN and DU. Do you know where these parts were used?
