The Juneero outfits allowed owners to build models or other objects out of metal: where Meccano used pre-made reusable components that were screwed and bolted together (and taught mechanics), Juneero provided tools for owners to make their own parts, and taught metalworking.
The Juneero Number 1 Outfit focussed on a special multifunction tool for bending, punching notching (etc.) metal, along with a screwdriver and spanners, a "die" for cutting screwthreads, and some raw materials.
The Number 2 Outfit came with more metal material, and with some additional accessories, such as a pair of metalworking shears.
The Multifunction Tool was updated to become the Super Multifunction Tool in 1940, and the same year, the range was expanded to include a separate electrically-powered engraver, and the No.1 and No.2 sets (costing 15/ and 30/) were joined by a larger Workshop Set that came in its own wooden chest and cost 60/, and the top-of-the-range Engineer's Set, which came in a metal box and cost 84/ .
