saw stand feet


the saw sits on the usual 4 metal leg stand.
it is about 1.2 inch too low.
the stand does not have those screw in feet on the bottom.
what are the bolts/ feet actually called?
thanks all

do the legs have any holes in the bottoms? or can you drill a hole in the bottom of each leg?.if so you can just use a bolt with 2 nuts on each to give you whatever height you want, or if you want to make it portable get some caster wheels for it..

Where are you tying to use it that it would make a difference?

The bolts idea is maybe what I will try but I was hoping for better. Much larger head so the garage concrete floor does not get damaged.
I could instead put some wood between the saw stand and the table.
Still prefer the feet. There are holes in the legs for them.
Thanks

Myself I would buy some rubber wheel locking casters for it.

This depends on weather you only need the short height adjustment, or you can use a 4 to 6 inch lift.

As stated by a previous person , we need DETAILS!
