I'm getting my new mill on Wednesday and I'm building a platform for it. It's a small Gorton knee mill that needs to be raised a bit and I'm wondering if there's some rule of thumb regarding the height of the spindle bottom.
I'm thinking that about 60" is about right. I'm 6'1" and hate bending over to see stuff. I'm wondering where the full size mills fall in the spectrum of spindle height, or if anyone has any opinions about this.
