Just to confuse things a little further,my 2b is about 63.5” with the vertical head on. Haven’t got the raising block yet but that will increase it by about 3.5”(made from 4x4 aluminium). My cabinet base is the steel version so that may account for the difference. Being quite tall I’ve stood my machine on timber bearers to bring it up to a more comfortable working height.

A 2A bench top model will go anywhere that you can stand to use it, even with a block (if it comes with one)

If not a even 2A can make it's own short raising block.

I just remembered that my 2B with a MK3 VH is sitting on1" oak blocks with adjustable feet. I've just measured again. From the bottom of the cabinet (ie. the part that would be on the floor if I removed the feet and oak blocks) to the top of the VH, without the drawbar, is 63.5" (161.3cm). The drawbar sticks out 1.5" (3.9cm).

Once again, many thanks to Gary & Dave for taking the trouble to provide very useful info.
