So, this discussion spurred me into looking at some sort of jack system and I found scissor jacks from the basic automotive types for around $25 (some had mounting flanges on the top) to motorcycle jacks with larger platforms in the $60+ range. You might even find old car scissor jacks at the wrecking yard even cheaper.

I think I will add one of these to the bench design I posted above. That way I can release the 4 corner clamps adjust the height with the jack and re-clamp it. If the floor was uneven minor adjustments could be made by hand to level the top.
