I am curious what the "ideal" height of a tablesaw surface should be. I suspect that it's a relative measurement based on the operator's height, and also that the need for a mobile stand, leveling feet, or the sheer weight of the tool itself probably causes many people to simply accept whatever the height of their tablesaw ends up being. Nonetheless I wonder what the ideal is, and more importantly, what the safe limitations might be. I'm sadly unable to afford a cabinet saw at this time and my Craftsman 10" contractor saw seems quite "tall" at about 38" off the ground (on a mobile stand that raises it about an inch or so off the ground). The leading edge of the blade also seems quite far from the front of the table. I'm not familiar with what the variation from table to table might be. I ask for your thoughts. Thanks.
