This is not a new topic, but hoping for insight on a light maker type like me who aren’t able to build a muffler box (it’d make my machine too high for short me). Wrapping the hose with insulation is limited as I can’t open the window due to clearance. The machine is roughly 75db right up to it and down to 65db when I walk 10 feet away from it to the room door. Over the long run, I think I need to protect my hearing
I think only options is me to put a mat underneath the machine and maybe glue carpet on the mini-table underside. Maybe lean sound panels on the corner walls. Of course wear ear mufflers for longer jobs. Any other suggestions?
I’m also trying to be ‘nice’. My neighbour’s tenants entry door is roughly 20ish feet from my vent to door? They always have that door open all the time when they are home (even in the dead of winter)
Legally, my machine is not breaking any bylaw. If it’s 65db to my room door in my home it should be below that at their door (55 to 70db allowed 7am - 10pm on week days). Most of the time, I’d run it between 5pm and 8pm if I do. I don’t like my neighbours tenants (insert rant here). I’m trying to be nice anyway.
