Fixya is a voluntary help website and we don't buy or sell anything and we aren't affiliated with any brands.

Those dealing with (noisy) machinery should invest in a Sonascope or a stethoscope designed for listening to and pinpointing mechanical noises. These things are inexpensive and invaluable and more practical than listening through a screwdriver or a sawn-off broom handle.

For more serious work there are electronic vibration meters available but my trusty Sonascope has never let me down.
