Actually, in my usual usual gym's case the seat on the machine still isn't high enough even at the top (it's old and crappy). And when I was on the road the other week I went to a different gym and they had a cable machine with approximately a FOOT in between the adjustments, and my shoulder ended up smack dab in the middle.
I rectified it with a low squat stance which made me look like a samurai practicing his chops, which was cool and all, but it made me think of the question and since this is a "how to" thread I figured I'd ask.
