A wooden platform to finished elevation of approx 36” and some oak wedges will make the adjustment quick.

Make the double wedges with a very long taper. Of course, when you drive the oak wedges under the platform, use liberal amounts of glue on both the wedges and upon the bottom of the platform. If you wish, a small ‘toe-nail’ will hold wedges firmly in place while waiting for glue to dry.

A flush cut hand saw will help get rid of the ‘tail’ sticking out into the room.

I feel your challenges regarding tool elevation. I find I need to add about 3” to every one of my floor mounted tools to prevent excess back pain. Table saw, bandsaw, lathe, most sanders, chop saw and router/shaper all have new elevations at my new shop.
