The pump for Gerald's air assist is just sat loose on the floor at the moment, and transfers a reasonable amount of noise into the floor as a result. That means it's fairly noisy (even more so if it falls onto its side, like in #1182) by the entrance downstairs.

It'd be nice if we could find a better mounting option to reduce the noise/vibration more.

It used to be sat on, and cabled-tied to, Gerald's frame but I don't know if that would transfer more vibration through. Maybe we should try it and compare? Or find something better?

FWIW I just tried placing it on the "socket height" wood but it still sounds noisy downstairs. For the record we have had comments from Jason about this in the past and concerns that it would affect a downstairs tenant.

I would try spring mounting or on some rubber/foam.

The other option is a very heavy block of concrete to bolt it to.

My Instinct from the audio world would be spring mount it in a frame

There are a few folks using half tennis balls as anti vibration feet on speaker cabinets and drum kits. Might be worth a try

hang it on a bungee. Elastic coupling along the bungee and none anywhere else !
