This video shows the operation of the elevator from one of our projects installed in a house built in 1908.

The noise you hear when the elevator is going up through the floor is the hatch cover when it contacts the top of the elevator and when the hatch cover comes down to rest on the hole liner as the top of the elevator clears the hole liner on the way down. There are other background noises not associated with the elevator operation.
