Default New Torch, nothing fits!

I got myself a Bravo and when I sit in front of it.. it is too tall compared to my lynx! Which means I need a new chair? I don't think a standard office chair that raises will work anymore, as I had it on the highest lift. And if I did... then my elbows won't rest on the creation station anymore!

It's a dumb question but.... has anyone else upgraded and needed to literally "up" grade? What did you do?

i see that Dustin Revere has a slide out thing for his torch under the bench.. that may be the answer, does anyone know where to get something like that?

Can you elevate yourself with a seat pillow?

Actually, I installed 2 x 4 between the frame of my chair and the bottom of the seat.
I had to hunt up longer screws from the hardware store.

I also keep handy a half dozen fabric faced foam "yoga" blocks that I can stack, rotate or stand on end for elbow rests while I'm torching.

I cut a hole in the bench top to run my hoses through because I didn't like it so close to the front edge that I didn't have any place to put my elbows.
It was my way around having to make 'wings' like on a 'creation station'.

ETA: Once I got high enough to be comfortable with the bench surface I found that my feet dangled so I have a 6 by 6 about 4 feet long to put my feet on.

Since the torch was the only thing that changed, maybe try "lowering" the torch. That might be an easier job than raising everything else up higher.
