Hi, Just found this site while looking for a noise reducer of some sort for my Craftsman 3.5 hp shop vac. I Bought a noise reducer from the Home depot but it doesn't reduce the noise. Searched Google and Bob Villa's input list a M/N 16991 craftsman but futher searches (his listings and craftsman site) found none. Does any one know if craftsman makes a noise reduction devise or if there is one out there some where that will work on my vac? Thanks in advance for you reply

Craftsman vacs are notorious for having loud motors, and I'm afraid there isn't much you can do about it. Se-rs does sell a muffler for their vac's but their effectivness is questionable. I had a craftsman for many years, was the loudest thing in my shop, I had to wear ear muffs everytime I used it. I now have a shopvac and it is very quiet.
