Building a taller lift for my chair Answered

So, I own an  adjustable bar-height stool with min-height of 24" and max-height of 33" and I wonder if it is possible to either
 
1) retrofit the existing hydraulic lift so I can get 10" more in height 
2) Or completely build from scratch a similar hydraulic lift as the one I currently have installed except the new one would provide a max height of about 45"
 
I would appreciate any tips in accomplishing either of the above listed options please.

I think if the minimum goes up about 5", I would not mind. And I do anticipate changing heights often as I will need to move from desk to workable throughout the day.

I do have two hydraulic chair lifts I would have loved to use in building the new taller one. My original idea was to find a way to stack the hydraulic lifts one on top of the other, so I end up with a chair with two points of adjustment, but I still have yet to find any information on how to go about doing and testing t.

most hydralic rams lift a lot more than the few hundred pounds a chair holds. They will also lift a lot slower. Just thinkin out loud.

Do u still want the 24 in min? And do u anticipate changing height often?

if you don't care that the minimum height would change, you could just add some blocks between the current lift and the seat to increase the max height.
