  1. cheap yoga mat.. put some under each foot of the table, and another piece between the machine and the surface.

  2. The sound is probably being transmitted through the legs of the table. Part of the problem is all that mass flying up and down which would travel nicely into the floor. You can see if it’s mechanically coupled or radiated noise by lifting the machine off of the table while it’s spinning while talking to them on the phone. If the sound disappears, it’s primarily mechanically transmitted noise that’s bothering them

    I’d try using a serger machine mat or even two. They sell them on amazon and they work pretty well. You can also place pads under the legs of the table but they’ll need enough give to isolate the vibration.
