Yorkcraft Planer, 15 inch - movable table question

I have no connections to Wilke or Yorkcraft and the following commercial promotion is just my personal opinion. Perhaps I just like to convince myself that I made the right decision when purchasing this low cost planer. The 15" Precison Planer (YC-15P) price is unbeatable. With $799 you are getting better planer than those from competitors, which have price tag from $1,000 to $1,200.
Question: The blades are on top at fixed height and the table is moved up and down to adjust the thickness. Is there any easy way to have your external infeed and outfeed stands adjusted to follow the table height? The Lee Valley Ultimate Roller Stand (50U01.01) has the fine height adjustment, which could be the right solution. Please share your experience with the LV stand.
Cheers, Ollie

Sure - fix 'em to the table. But you knew that, didn't you?
They make fixed bed types as well, because you can't do otherwise. I find this more convenient in a small shop, because I can mount it on a stand of proper height to clear stock under benches and such. If you're doing a board at a time, and don't use a helper, just walk the three steps and help the board off the other side. If you're doing ten boards, get a helper, and have them keep track of thickness by placing boards to one side as they clear the planer, while you pick up the ones from the last pass on the other side.
