Maximum Z-Height

I am building my LowRider 2 and had read that it is best to keep the maximum z-height to 3-4" for wood. Is that referring to cutting wood, or the plates being made out of wood. (I am presuming cutting wood.)

Is there any drawback to leaving the stainless tube longer for a higher z-height if the height is not being used for finicky cuts. (say cutting foam) and then just keeping z-axis low for wood or metal cuts?

I have not cut down my tubes yet, and the rods that come with the kit are long enough for a lot more z-height than is recommended, so some clarification would be appreciated before I start cutting my tubes. I’m at that point now.





The working height you put into the calculator.
