Mity-Lite tables.

About 25 years ago Mity-Lite started on the path to their current Gen 3  ABS plastic table.  The first table a totally foam filled table did not work.  Gen 2 was the "no-drip edge" or "FAT BOY" as many called it.   The Bryan table, designed by Mr. Bryan, and still manufactured much the same today by Palmer Snyder was the inspiration for the Gen 3 table, basically the same table mase today.  Gen 4 was a rotationally molded table that was never commercailly produced in large quantities.  There has much much tweaking, and testing and design adjustments, but the Gen 3 table of 1985 is the classic in ABS plastic tables.
