It needs compressed air. The compressor would be noisy to run in any other room.

Isn't it on a wheeled cart? Could it be moved to a quieter space?

So far, we have had partial success, getting it working to the point where we can move the head in XY, raise and lower the router, and open/close the spindle collet. However, we have not been able to operate the tool crib and its associated auxilliary collet clamp, nor can we get the spindle to spin up. The unit does not respond to the commands that control this part of its functionality. At this point we're pretty much stumped.

His help may be limited to identifying which of several rather expensive main parts is at fault, but even that would be a step forward at this point.
