For short durations of noisy stuff, I use my balcony. For other longer
durations of really noisy stuff, I go over to a friend's place. I sold
my tablesaw really cheaply to him over ten years ago, advantage being
that I get to go over and use it when needed. That's his backyard
patio where I built the garden trestle table.
It's a pain having to go all the way over there, but it's damned
better than not having the option at all.
This situation reminds me of a song Roger McGuinn wrote about his brother in
law (my aunt's husband). "If it's free it cost too much." In the case of
the BIL if he ever did anything for you or gave you something you ended up
paying it back 10 times over fulfilling requests from the BIL. In this case,
your friend got to provide space, electric, blades, and quiet over the
course of 10 years for the privilege of a deal on the table saw. ;~)
