Perforated asbestos cement tiles to sound proof your shop. man science has come a long way. Not bashing Asbestos, infact if it were used like it was supposed to 3,000+ people might still be alive to day on 9-11, just theres such better products available now.

Yes, some of this stuff was originally printed before
most people here were born; but the ideas are still sound.
Just substitute modern materials.
