What is the proper height above the floor for the dead-centers?
It is on the factory sheet metal stand (which I will replace ) and the centers are now 40.5 inches above the floor. This seems low to me, as I would have to hunch down to see well and get a comfortable position with the chisels.
I am 6" tall and any advice is gladly welcomed.
