I am considering getting the CNC Industrial Hobbies benchtop milling machine. The problem I have now is that I live in an apartment in the San Jose, CA area. I will have to move into a house rental. Or, what one person suggest, I can keep my apartment and put the mill in an industrial rental place. I was informed that this industrial rental place costs about $100/month and is simply a small garage where I can run the CNC mill for as long as I want without worrying about the noise or dirt. My question is, is there really such a industrial rental place and where would I find one?
Also, what are the general city/county laws about the noise factor if I do decide to rent a house? I definately do not want the neighbors to complain and don't want to be evicted from a house rental. I would like to avoid these things and plan ahead of time before I make my decision on which house I should move into.
I plan to run the CNC machine for upto 4 hours on Saturday and 4 hours on Sunday during the day approximately. This is strictly a hobby thing only.
Another plan to to simply get a house rental and install the benchtop CNC mill in the garage. If noise is a problem with the neighbors, I can install a sound dampening enclosure around the mill.
Any advice would be appreciated.

. here in Dallas I had a warehouse apt 2 floors approx. 2700 sq' per floor with an industrial lift between floors for only $750 / mo. all bills. Until that woman mayor decided our neighborhood was "Trendy" and I became a victim of "Urban Renewal" so My humble 2 cents is, any $100 industrial park shop, I'd be very careful about the neighbors!!!!! YMMV
An idea that is not dangerous is unworthy of being called an idea at all, and Consistency is the last refuge of the unimaginative.
