I believe IKEA is Swedish. Though... gotta check to be sure.Great find!
Made in Denmark.... That's where the 'big' Ikea popped up in the early 70s (I think), supplying this corner of the globe with all the home-DIY improvements we needed to paper over the cracks lol - or tile over with cork and styrene panels.
I can still taste the rubber from them tap attatchments, new minty gel toothpaste wouldn't even take that away! The future smelt really funny too in the 70s!!
IKEA got its first store in the 1950's in a part of Sweden close to Denmark. These days it is more of a multinational than it is Swedish though.Made in Denmark....

This is VERY exciting news, I will be patiently following this thread closely in anticipation of any news on a possible reproduction!So, what I have done is what I hope will be the next best thing. I am currently part way through the process of having these parts reverse engineered. At the moment I'm still in the early stages but my plan is to have these parts remanufactured exactly as they would have been back in the 70's. This means having them produced as injection moulded pieces and making them available to the community.
As of yet I'm afraid I can give no further details for the simple reason I don't have any myself at present, but as soon as I know I will be making it known here.
Coincidentally I was talking to my close friend Chris at Blaster Factory about this Aerator discovery, I helped him design his aluminum E-11 blaster kits which have a reproduction plastic grip good enough to replace the real thing. You’d honestly be hard pressed to tell the difference. He’s also recently reproduced the rare Margolin grips from Leia’s blaster perfectly accurate to the original. These are good enough to replace the real thing too!I'm still hoping to get something rolling but at present I'm in between house moving so this is currently taking up a lot of my time. I will keep people posted....
