Some of these designers at Svangsta worked in teams, so some patents are in multiple names while others are single designers working alone on a particular task.
I have found around 30 detailed patent drawings and many more with the help of John Fiskat to share here. Sadly many arew without any detail other than the image of the drawing, no date, no designers , we merely know it is ABU. Most found so far are for Reels but Lures, and other miscellaneous itels exist, like scales, rucksacks, presentation of lures at point of sale etc.
Many other are to be added, such as Goran Enocson with whom I will have contact soon regarding his patents/designs.
I would dearly love to find the patent info for Ake Murvall and Stig Svenssen who were among the first engineer/designers appointed by Gote Borgstrom.
Click on the Patent name to see more image and text details.
Readers may feel free to nominate more if information is available to them.
I do hope we can add a lot more along with bibleographic detail and photos of inventors/designers.

Please be patient and enjoy as they appear and do contribute!
If you have any others not listed above, that are unneeded or doubles in your collection and are available for a reasonable fee, I would be very pleased to hear from you.
