Air Line Lubricater

I recently finished piping my airlines and I'm going to put a filter/air line lubricater on one of my outlets. Probably one of the cheapos from HF. I want to use this same outlet for my blasting cabinet and air tools. I thought that following the filter and regulator I would put a T and a quick coupler on the line (for my blast cabinet) and then run the line into my oiler. After the oiler would be another quick coupler for the air tools. Would I have to put a ball valve in between the quick coupler and the lubricater to keep the oil from getting into the blast cabinet? I hope you can understand what I'm trying to say. If not I may have to draw a picture.

ok regulated or unregulated. if Unregulated rather than the small peice of pipre connecting the filter and regulator, run a T between them, use the T as your dry air line, the oiler has a check valve internal, to keep oil from going back into the filter, so no ball valve needed.

The T would have to come after the regulator so that I could control the air for my blasting cabinet and then the lubricator would be next. I didn't realize that the lubricater had a check valve in it so I should be OK. Thanks for the info. Now I've got to buy a filter/lubricater.
