    Just a question for those that use them a lot, is a few drops of oil into them every few hours while working and before you use them a good way of oiling them? I tried a mini oiler but it leaked and added quite a bit to the size of the tool. I'd much rather just put a few drops in. Thanks!

    Per week. Our compressors make a lot of moisture. Would need a water seperator. The size of a 5 gallon bucket.

    Time for some better compressors and add some air dryers.Heck my 13 year old IR Titanium 1/2" impact has never been oiled and spent 2 years in the sand box and still has more power then even the newest impacts from Snapon and such.

    Yeah I love mine so much I spent about 8 hours digging for it after a idiot D9 operator decided to move his D9 before I finished putting the belly pan plates back on in Iraq.

    Moisture isn't an issue...got a dryer on it the compressor. So thanks for the responses, I'll have to look into the Snap On stuff.

    I just used the Marvel oil from the tool guy. Worked fine in my IR and we had moisture in our compressors a lot. Couple drops every day. A small thing of it lasted me two years and I used my impact almost every day. Plus the use of my other tools.
