Red-and-green era vintage Meccano, used to make a differential analyser. Cool! Unlike in many cases on the web, do read the comments, too!
My own Meccano set was of a later blue-and-yellow era, and a few of the pieces were even (shudder) plastic. And I too very much regret getting rid of mine – I had a number 9 set.
