El Experto Mecanico Construction Sets
and
Armec Construction Sets

El Experto Mecanico and Armec were both Meccano-like construction systems, but the quality was very poor. They are both very similar systems made by the same company. El Experto Mecanico is thought to have preceded Armec. They were made in Argentina from around 1945 to 1955
