    Default Quiet vacuums - what, which, where?

    hey. im currently using a small shopvac to power my vacuum table, and its freaking LOUD, even in the egg-carton-lined-box i constructed.

    i have found reference to quiet vacuum motors like this one on the net:
    Quiet Vacuum Motors

    does anyone have experience with these type of vacuum motor? any info will be much appreciated.

    thx. jacob

    Do a search..

    The best idea seems to be to put the vacuume in another room and pipe in it to your press.

    egg-carton-lined box?

    egg cartons are used in cheapo music studios to absorb sound reflection off of flat walls. basically to minimize echoes. egg cartons are not soundproofing. try some thick blankets.

    That's what I do. I've got about 5 hoses hooked together, and my shop vac is in the guest bedroom with the door closed as far as it can be... I can play my stereo and hear it no problemo.

    I have mine in a closet near my table and it's piped through the wall. Works like a dream! I think the older models of shop vacs are actually quieter than the new ones for some reason too. Check craigslist for an older metal vac, rather than the cylindrical plastic kind.

    It would be awesome to hook it up to a central vac system.

    Does it need to be a shopvac? Could you just use a quieter home vacuum? They're still loud though...

    I have an AWT vacuum that is so silent you can barely tell it's running.

    Mine's the 7MS8 series, very well insulated.
