Unfortunately those pictures can't be viewed without a "forum.tt-news.de" account... any chance you could repost the pictures here? 
I can tell from your list of blades that you have many 'treasures'... I would love to see them. Smile

No, a company called "Woodhouse AB" makes blades for both (amongst others).  A good thread to  information about this is the "Where are Donic Blades made?" thread -- http://mytabletennis.net/Forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=50867&PN=2

No, icontek is correct here. Most if not all "Made in Sweden" blades from other manufacturers are made at Woodhouse AB in Tranås, Sweden.
 
A little Swedish blade history --

......Also, Donic's "Swedish Construction" blades are also manufactured at Woodhouse AB, as well as select Nittaku blades (those that feature the, "Made in Sweden", on the lens). Woodhouse AB is located in Tranås, Sweden. Check your old Stiga lenses -- Alsers, Johanssons, Bengtssons, "Tickan"s, Lindh's, etc. Those will say "Made in Tranås", if they are early 90's and earlier. I don't know when Stiga stopped putting "Made in Tranås" in their lenses (Anyone?)

Stiga blades, are produced 220km away in Eskilstuna, Sweden. Eskiltuna is home to Bengt Bandstigen, who founded Banda Blades (remember those?). Banda was the blade that Waldner chose to play with, and popularized in the 80's-early 90's. Banda purchased Stiga Sports AB in 1984 and moved operations, and many good blade technicians, from Tranås to Eskilstuna. Today Stiga Sports AB is run by Bengt Bandstigen's son, Mats Bandstigen.

Stiga --> Yasaka[Donic/Nittaku] = Woodhouse AB (Tranås, Sweden)
Banda --> Stiga = Stiga AB -> (Eskilstuna, Sweden)

Here is my pre-made mid 90's J.O. Waldner Donic blade... must say it is decent blade, good feeling but bit heavy.

Is the Donic Waldner Dicon the only modern day equivalent to these old 5-ply Limba Waldner Banda blades?

What else is out there (besides OSP)?

The Dicon is much stiffer than the old Donic Waldner 5-ply.  The Dicon is after all rated as "nearly-stiff" on Donic's scale, while Donic's classic Waldner 5-ply is a very elastic blade.   I have to concur.  My Dicon feels much stiffer my old Donic Waldners.   The only resemblance is the wood plies.  
      I think for a modern day equivalent, the Donic Waldner Senso Carbon should be the closest in feel.  It is rated as "speed-elastic" on Donic's scale, and it is, after all, the blade Waldner himself chooses to play with and presumably helped in designing for use with the 40mm ball.

Agreed, the Waldner Senso Carbon is close, and I'd suggest the Waldner Senso V1 (i.e. without the carbon) is the closest in feel to the original limba Waldners.

A TT shop here in Greece had once for sale a donic blade which I cry that I didn't buy it at that time...It's name was strange like "Donic carbokev" or "Donic carbokevlar" or something.I saw this in the shop at 2003 or 2004, so I don't know if it is older.Can someone who has this blade, show it please???I am in love so many years with this blade.Please if someone has it, I beg him to post some photos!
