The proper way to lubricate those things is with a few drops of Marvel Air Tool oil in the air hose then run it for a couple of seconds. FWIW, buying one of those things used is a cr@# shoot IMHO. They see a lot of very heavy use and generally wear out pretty quick if used day in, day out. I went through about five or six of those in the time I was making a living as a mechanic...yes some were Snap-On.
