I am using the wooden surveyor's tripod sold with the EZ Touch.

And I thank you for it Doug. Still using it.

Glad to hear it, Dennis! Let me know if you ever want to sell it.
Unlikely at this point Doug. I'm in the process of having an adapter made so I can mount it on a used Hercules tripod I bought. This one has the central shaft extension that would eliminate the problem that the OP has. Cost @ $300-$200 for the tripod, $100 for the two adapters.Hope to get it back next week.

To the OP; you may wish to look at different tripod options as far as being able to use an extension is concerned. ScopeStuff sells the Antares Telescope Pedestals in various heights. I used to use one for a ASGT mount, and they work well.
