Picked up a new chain yesterday and put it on this morning. Had to also fix the wires that got chewed up by the broken chain, and now my charging light is dimly lit. Still going to have to figure that out.

Decided that since it was wwaaAAAAYYY to loud, I needed to do something about it before my nieghbors got out their shotguns. Built a baffle to quite it down some.

First attempt: just a reverse cone. Quited it down a little, but nowhere near enough.

Second attempt: added a tube from another pipe I had, then stuffed a long thin curtain rod into that and drilled a bunch of holes in it. Then I stuffed that whole thing into my cone and packed the cone end with insulation. Worked great! WAY quite and actually runs better with some back pressure.

I actually used more insulation than in the pic, wrapped about 3 inches up the pipe from the cone.

Guess we'll see how long it lasts!!
