Very nice setups Larry, impressive actually! Them fellas at Preway really had their head in the game some twenty years before Coleman in regards to portable camping tables.

Great thread and info!!  I have a couple of photos of original boxes from the net.  These tables seemed to come with many options, carry bags, stools, no stools, stools only.  

Mid 50's - 60's with no stools but a case.  Has anyone seen a preserved case?   640 Box web.png 

Hang tag for above:     640 Hang tag web.png 


Metallic set with stools  (5201 ??):     Pak-Table box 5201 web.png 
Stand alone stool set?      Example Grey stools web.png 

Please comment on any incorrect info.

I have the 50's-60 table with that same hang tag.  It appears that the table was sold alone and stools sold separately.

Yes, it states in the advertising I showed above : “stools are available at small extra cost. “
DJ , the table folded up is the carrying case. Kind of a play on words in advertising  :   it’s a table when set up and a carrying case when folded up. 
If you have four stools in it there’s not much room for anything else though. 
 I have not seen the Coleman branded stools painted in grey or different color seats other than red before, if they are really Coleman (I see the decal) they must be a later variety I’m not familiar with.

 I’m hard pressed to top Larry’s display but I’ll attempt it. 😉  I was lucky enough to find this JC Higgins (Sears) branded table about a year ago. I’m guessing, because it has similar features to Larry’s vinyl top table, it was either made by Coleman or by the the same manufacturer of the later Coleman example. It was found with the original box but unfortunately no paperwork. I really like the fold out/spring lock style legs of this table compared to my Coleman table similar to the one above that has the thumb screws to lock in the legs.   50614226-B83E-4F84-8D2C-B94140F411F1.jpeg  3C159F76-00A5-4FEB-8AA0-D621744AECE4.jpeg 773A76D5-C984-4AE9-B362-FC5C7351ADE7.jpeg  2EB71466-F16E-42E0-A7FD-91610A504B65.jpeg  3D7B021A-4CAC-40CA-8CE9-2F719728C4F7.jpeg  79796077-2E96-4FC7-A969-A8E815855345.jpeg

Yea, I wondered about the  "carrying case"  after posting.  Advertising hasn't changed much in 60 years.  

As to the grey stools, I have a set of 3, not the ones I posted the photo of, and have seen photos of others around the net (grey with Coleman decal).  The seat attachment clips and welded hardware appear to be identical to the green ones and the measurements align with the smaller of the two sizes of the green ones mostly seen (information from other threads here).  I'm certainly new to these and that is why I was delighted to see this thread to explore their details.
Tks.

Excellent thread, Larry.

I love these things and have a mid-1950s-'60s Coleman but I just realized I don't have a photo of it set-up.

I'll take a few and upload but here's a shot showing the stainless-steel rivet I used to repair the otherwise-great latches.

Thanks again for the great images and info.

I actually had 4 of these at one time, now I'm down to just 1. The one with the box in the photo now belongs to Jared. I have 8 stools, 2 of which are the smaller version without the Coleman logo. I'll post photos soon along with my Handy Table, if that would be acceptable to add to this thread.

Cheers,

Here are mine, no idea what model #s:

[34163956616_cb581b92fb_b]

Metallic green, w/stools. I have all four, one was out for new canvas when I took the picture. All stools now have fresh canvas. Any idea what handle this would have had?

Re-canvased stool vs. original:

A friend who makes tents made the tops for me.

My other table, in use:

[36445312895_212c6c8dfd_b]

I don't seem to have a picture of this table by itself.

the Metallic was : # 5201
Green with vinyl cover :  # 5202

Here are some comparisons shots of the stools. The small ones are not marked Coleman, while the larger ones are. The small ones have much thinner canvas as well, but I do not know if they are original. I also have some of the larger with white canvas, but not sure if the canvas has been replaced.The large ones folded are 21 1/2" x 13 1/2" while the smaller ones are 18 1/4" x 12 1/4" folded.

Here is an old picture with the white canvas stools. I don’t believe they are Coleman. Other manufacturers made them also.

My older one, with wire (single) handle uses the clips, not the screws, for the leg retention.

Wow, guys!--It's hard to find a modern ass that fits the "Large" size stools! I use them as ottomans, mostly. Still need to make a shallow plywood box to go over one for a side-table.

Your picture here shows the same dimensions for the early 640-A491 stools being the same size within a 1/4 inch (21 x 13 1/4 x 1) as the later 5201-7011 stools (21 1/4 x 13 1/4 x 1) folded. And are the same width.

I Don’t know what they sell for, but here is one in the Chicago area craigslist pages for $100, if anyone is interested.  Looks to be in excellent condition and the table and stools are all badged.

20D6C19D-D758-43D0-8285-0FA7E5EB876C.jpeg  Yes, the size (design) changed and the part number stayed the same for a time as many Coleman products had for decades. So the 640 table came with larger stools early first, then with smaller later. Part number changed for the new Metallic table to #5201 and the smaller stools number changed to # 5201-7011. Things usually transition with everything Coleman, as I stated earlier the large #640 won’t fit inside the 5201 metallic or 5202 vinyl type table.

The specs show the same size dimensions for the stools in this diagram with the  later 5202 vinyl tables. I will check when I get home but this diagram says the tables are all the same size.

The table listed in the Chicago CL is sold now. I was in the middle of a deal with the seller when this was posted. A very good reason why we don't post active listings like that on here.

A member here was already on this. Please don’t post CL ads out of your area unless you intend to drive there and pick them up. This behavior is allowed here but put yourself in his position. What pleasure do you get from posting something for sale on CL thousands a mile away from you?
