It's not possible. I have a Super Jolly that is super quiet until you put
coffee beans in it. The actual process of grinding makes noise. I have
hand grinders that are quiet until you start grinding.
If you are talking about the noise of the grinder w/o beans (motor noise)
then I'd say you would at least have to go to the level of a Rancilio Rocky
which is several hundred dollars.
Or shop ebay. You might snipe a quiet grinder from the many people here who
are always looking for that extra grinder. :-)

... I've got some 6" 1/4" wide aluminum oxide wheels that I'll use when I get another bench grinder, but like you suggested, for lots of general shop grinding variations it takes several grinders with different abrasives "mounted and ready to go" when needed, which also requires more shop space. ... I'm convinced that a specially-built grinding setup/fixture just for lathe cutting tools would be a worthwhile project, kinda like a compat version of a T & C grinder just for lathe cutting tools. ...
