I was just wondering if I am the only one who is not compatible with the standard height at which benches, table tops, etc. are made. When I look at things like table saws, jointers and such on the showroom floor the standard height is way too low for me to work comfortably. All that bending over limits how long I can stay at it. I built a stand for my current table saw which places the top at a height at least 6-8 inches higher than normal. I built my router table to sit up higher as well.
Since I may be in the market for a new table saw I am wondering if anyone else felt the need to deal with this issue. It does not seem like raising up something like a Grizzly 0715P as much as I would like is really feasible. Even a contractor type saw like the Ridgid 4512 or Craftsman 21833 might not work too well unless I removed the legs and replaced them with a shop built something or other like I did with my present saw.
I’d like to hear from others who might have done something along these lines successfully.
