I'm glad you were able to get the lathe quieted down. One of the things I like most about using the lathe is it is quiet compared to the other machinery I have in my shop. My lathe (not the HF), which isn't as old as yours, but is still fairly old having been made in the late 1990's, is so quiet I cannot tell it is on by the sound. The air thrown off by the spinning blank makes more noise than the lathe itself. As a consequence, turning can be an almost zen like experience.

Good luck and safe spinning!
