Am looking for Erector (Meccano) sets or K'nex sets...updated

but haven't a lot of "resources", so mostly unwanted sets that I could pay shipping to take them off your hands. They are for special "classes" /  tutoring segments
I am having with an Asperger's Syndrome child.  (NOT the one in the video....

I am working on a wide variety of projects for the youngster.  From "squishy circuits" to robotics, to chemistry and metalurgy, but she has a keen interest in dinosaurs and Roman history, and I am a bit lost on Roman history....any suggestions on how to get THAT worked into an interesting project?

Thank you Gmoon for stepping up to the plate and getting me started on this project.  It will mean the WORLD to my wonderfully attentive student :-)

Thank you SO much, you can probably understand better than many others, how important this is to her. She needs constant challenge and stimulation, and LOVES to construct things. PM sent.

You want, Mike? The motor even works, I tested it (couldn't tell you the actual voltage rating, though--3V maybe?)

I think the box has a combo of the set I owned as a kid, and a few parts I found at a garage sale a few yrs ago.

They won't get any use here. PM me.

You might want to mention "Meccano". Thats what they call Erector sets here...
I grew up on "Meccano" in Paris France.

Yes, Meccano was great. So were those round, transparent parts (from a different company I think), that you could connect together. They had all the gears and wiring built inside the parts, so that when you connected them together with the motor it would move and do whatever you were making... ah, so many memories. (I wish I could remember what they were called).
