My new manual Taig mill just arrived. I tried it on my 30" high workbench. That seemed a little low. I'm 5'11". I'm building a cabinet. Please tell me about the height of your Taig Mill table/cabinet and if you wish it was higher or lower.

You may consider using it as a table top unit. Sitting in a chair can be really nice.

Or just grab a pile of books to put on top of what ever you have to mock up the perfect height for you.

Good suggestion. Some times my first impressions don't prove out in the long run. My other mills are horizontal and of course larger. I am used to the table being higher but I have not had a vertical feed wheel on top of my other mills. I'm hoping that some who have used a manual Taig mill a while will chime in.
