Hi

none of them are ,,that's why you need ear plugs when you use them, 80db can take your hearing out in short order.. if you spin a cutting tool at 20,000 rpm's it going to make some racket.. the key for me is not to run them at 20,000 rpm's I run most bits at 8,000 rpm's most of the time, think how fast that is, no other tool you have in the shop will turn a cutting tool that fast the norm..

I haven't got any suitable for a library... quietest one I have is the Hitachi M12VC. The Triton isn't to bad, the rest are pretty loud.

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.

Bosch Colt is pretty quiet. It's a bit on a smallish side though :-)

In the UK I'd say the Bosch GOF2000 is probably the quietest big router. I believe these are sold as the 1619EVS in North America. The other quiet router I've used is the Festool Of1010. In reality none of them is particularly when they are cutting sheet materials, though

Regards

Phil

Hi anon,

Without question, the quietest router is the one that isn't running. ":^)

If you don't mind, please share why you need to know which is "quietest".

They are all loud enough that common sense dictates the use of protection. If you are worried about disturbing the neighbors, the db level between routers isn't big enough to make a difference. Table mounting will give the best results for lowering the sound level. (Table design can make a huge difference.)

The choice should be based upon your routing needs, not the db level.

Mike

You think I'm crazy? Wait till you meet my imaginary friends.

The quietest router, is a cordless router! Something like an old Stanley 71, or such, router plane.
