    Chinese gearbox noise.

    Hello, I have garage in a duplex which limits my garage noise to 80 decibels, Im looking at square column vertical mills and wondering if there is a way to reduce the noise?
    Gear lapping?
    Thicker oils?
    Im looking at RF45 or VM32,the 32 is 50kg lighter than the 45 but has a low noise dc motor.
