is there any way to muffle the noise from stationary elctric power tooks like a Table saw?
I would like to set up a workshop in a residential area and I would like to minimize the noise coming from my power tools…..

MAKE YOUR WALLS 2X6 AND INSULATE WITH 6 INCH INSULATION, USE 5/8 TH’S WALL BOARD, THE BEST TABLE SAWS THAT ARE THE MOST QUIET COME FROM GERMANY, AND THEIR NOT CHEAP

Definitely insulation is the answer. Since you will be using an open building or garage, you should insulate the walls as much as possible, and hang fabric from the ceiling like waves to absorb sound. Add some fake trees in your shop to absorb more sound. Basically look for anything that would absorb sound and use it to the max.
P.S. I live by a workshop and I have told them about this same thing, and the sound level has dropped a lot!

You can try putting vibration eliminators under the table saw legs. You can get these at home improvement centers and come in sheet that can be cut to the size you need
Suggestion by Ron J
one way is to put rubber on the bottom of the legs,u can use something as simple as a bicycle inner tube
Is there a power tool table with multiple tools?
I thought I seen a tool table on tv a while back that had 3-5 different tools
It could off been a combintion off miter saw band say table say with other tools on it
dont remember much but does anyone know of a powertool/work table like this
Suggestion by bryan o
Probably not what you are looking for, the Shopsmith Mark VII is a great multitool product. (saw, miter, lathe, band saw, etc.)
I also saw a portable multitool at OSH the other day.

The absolute finest example of what you are talking about is called a “Knapp.” They are big, they are heavy, they are expensive. Here is just one example, they make a few different models:
It’s a beast of a tool for someone doing medium scale production work that doesn’t want to spend 60,000 bucks on a whole wood shop. Laguna tools currently handles the line, but it’s a lot like ordering a custom car. You tell them what you want, they build it. They are built in Austria and travel over the big pond to the USA. BTW, Felder and Mini-Max are the other two biggies. I haven’t seen a Shopmaster Mark VII in a very long time.
