Woodworking for the tall man

What do you tall woodworkers do with your "built for the average height" tools? For example, my tablesaw seems a bit short for me so I'm considering adding some extensions to the legs.
Pictures of your solution would be great.
Thanks.

This raises it up an inch, and you can roll the TS around the shop.

I need more than an ince, but I have seen similar setups that add perhaps 4 or 5 inches.
Thanks for the link.

I get TONS of spam offering to both add inches and drop them, depending of the location. <G>

I put a wooden frame between the stand and saw cabinet on my contractor's saw. It has long holes bored through it where the stock bolts go. I got some 6" replacement bolts and it worked fine.
I ended up taking the thing out though. I like having the table lower. I'm only 6'4" though, so your "problem" may be bigger than mine :)
Another alternative would be to build a nice cabinet with doors and drawers and bolt the stand onto that.

I am 6' 6". I built a table to set my contractor saw on with a 30 inch extention table to the right and flush with the saw top. It is around 44" high. I also built a work table of about the same height. The 44" is one inch short of my elbow when standing up. My jointer is of standard height. Scott

For my TS I built a mobile stand which raises it 2". I built stands for my bandsaw & drillpress that raise those to a comfortable height. I don't like bending over. I'm 6' 2.5"
