Harbin Table (Aluminum) by WholeSalingMagic(c. 2009) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
Robert Harbin invented The Harbin Table c. 1951 and it his described in his book The Magic of Robert Harbin (pg. 38). A variation of this table was also called the Billy McComb/Robert Harbin table.
This table was made in aluminum and like all the Harbin tables I have seen was sturdy. The earliest versions made in Aluminum were manufactured in Russia since after the cold war many Russian machinists were left without work and a few began to make magic effects out of aluminum. Since then many have been made in China and WholeSalingMagic in China is most likely where this table came from .
Effect: It is definitely one of the coolest tables ever made for magicians. Also known as the Packaway Table and the Book Table, it’s a modernistic looking side or center table, which, through an ingenious hinged design, could be folded into a package the size of a large magazine, and could be opened instantly with one hand!
