Question Installing a Woodrat 900

A question from a newbie. I will be installing my Woodrat over the next few weeks and in my preliminary research havenít managed to find the height at which I should mount the wall plate. I have picked up the value of fabricating a plate that sets the Woodrat 5 or so inches off the wall, but I am stuffed if I can find what height the Woodrat should be off the floor. Any advice appreciated. Dave

I would say at whatever height you will feel comfortable using it at.

Many thanks for the responses. I will use it standing, but that variable height idea doesn’t sound too bad. And thank you for the welcome. Dave

Nice looking unit Dave. I hadn't heard of this before and my wife thanks you Welcome to the forum. After you get this unit and have played with it a while please post some pictures and your impression of this tool. Looks promising.

I'm new to this forum but a veteran woodworker. I like higher for most things like a Router table, cabinet assembly tables are nice lower so the work is within reach, but not really usable for anything else. General workbench height for the everyday bench. I would need to measure to be more specific, but you get the idea.
