    Yes it is noisy. There is a YouTube video comparing mine to the belt drive upgrade model. Fortunately I already had hearing protection. The last few passes I made in aluminum at 2400 RPM in high range. Seems to be working OK.

    pacomdiver the mill you wound up with is far more capable than mine but is over 600 lbs heavier. An excellent choice but more than I could handle right now.

    Yes those things are noisy as they come from the factory, it's just the nature of the beast as the old saying goes. However the milling head is just a box with a simple jack-shaft held in a couple of bearings driven by those plastic gears so there is very little that can go wrong with them, it's not at all like the head is some sort of gear box because there is nothing in there except that jack-shaft. Short of worn out bearings which is certainly not going to be the case with a new machine or broken drive gears which would be obvious there is nothing else much to go wrong in there that any noise would be indicative of.

    Not sure if it helps but a book that I was shown is "Technology of Machine Tools" by Krar, Smid, and Gill. I think I found a used copy on evilbay for like 12 bucks shipped. Lots of good feeds and speeds info in there for lots of things. Its basically a school text book. Might be worth a peak.
