Just wondering what type of oil can be used in Air Tools. Can 3 and 1 or MMO be used in replacement of it?

occasional use. Can you suggest other oils that would work?

I got a bottle of redline... I figure with my occasional use, good lube is more important.

All you need is a light viscosity oil. If you only use them occasionally its a good idea to lube them before putting them away, that way the insides are coated with oil. I like using an air tool specific oil because it comes in a small bottle, is labeled, and easy to dispense. A $3 bottle lasts years. I currently have Marvel air tool oil. (MATO?)
