Hi all, I have another odd question for you all. I currently live in
a top floor apartment, neighbors below and to either side. With the
weather getting colder, and the studio space I rent being unheated,
I’m considering moving my jewelry equipment to my balcony (about
80sf). I have a “practical” concern that I was hopping someone here
may know something about.
My problem is the noise from forming and banging on metal. I’m doing
pretty small scale silver: making beads, rings, body jewelry, etc.
So I don’t do a lot of heavy pounding, but what I do I’m still
afraid will make more noise than might be acceptable. So my question
is does anyone know a way to deaden the sound from hammering. My
options I have are using a heavy rubber pad, and/or putting sound
material on the walls…any comments?
I also welcome any comments about anything related to this. I have
planned for adequate ventilation, lighting, fire protection, etc. I
just need to make sure my neighbors aren’t bothered with my
hammering (only being done during sane hours…I like my sleep too)
Thanks in advance,
