Default trying to search for post on shop vac

A while ago there was a post on recommending a shop vac.
I believe that that the post was about buying a quite shop vac.

I have tried the search function and got nowhere.

I also believe that "stick" had a recommendation for one in his reply to the tread.

So------
a) can anyone educate me how to search for & obtain the posts regarding the "quite vac"
or
b) recommend one??

Both HD & Lowes have a vac(s) on sale and I was hoping to save some $$$ & pick up one (or the other) but I reasonably sure that neither was the one in the post.

Sorry for my ignorance but I'm usually in the background & read more than post.

Help!!!

TIA

Smitty I think you mean quiet and not quite but that still might not help with the search function as quiet is a pretty common word so there may be so many hits as to make it useless. If you have a idea of who posted in the thread you can go to their personal profile page by clicking on their user name. On that page there is a menu bar that has the word "Statistics" on it. When you click on that one of the options that comes up is to see all the posts that that person has made and also which threads they started. It will show those and the title of the thread. That might be enough to find it as the thread is likely to be something about shop vacs.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Smitty,

Couldn't find your post (I will admit I only looked a bit) but I did find web page that had a few of the major players shop vac's with decibel ratings. Scroll to the bottom of the page, then scroll the chart to the right.

10 Best Wet/Dry Shop Vacuums ? RelevantRankings.com

The data might be dated a little, but could be a head start.

I was just in Woodcraft buying some vac bags for my Fein Turbo I vac and noticed they are going to have $50 off on there next flyer starting in a couple of days for the Fein Vacs. They seem fairly quiet to me. I took the wheels off my Turbo I and it makes it very light and handy.

You can't go wrong with the Fein, good vac ,Quiet, pricey,

I looked at them and settled on a Cal-Air, and am happy not overly noisy You can hold a conversation standing next to it while it is running.

I have 2 Ridgid 14 gal vacs. Both hooked up to Dust Deputys. Can't beat em for $99. They are a bit noisy but I have run them for as much as 14 hours straight hooked up to my CNC machine. And they're still perking.

I'm using a Ridgid 14 or 16 gallon--not quiet, but functional. Saw an episode of Mythbusters a few days ago where they lifted a car using what appeared to be a Fein vac--that was pretty cool!! (in fairness, any vac with the right CFM would have worked, but they had good taste)

I have had a 10 gallon Shop Vac for a number of years. Used it for everything from picking up water to vacuuming sheet rock dust. Just need to take care of it. Noisy but happy with it; Lowe's carries a lot of things for it.

I ran through a similar search a few weeks ago and ended up relying on several outside reviews as well as the one Doug posted above. I purchased the Ridgid 1851 ad am very pleased with the performance (on a chop saw and router table as well as general clean up) and noise level. Might be on slae this time of year as well.
